Disney Does It Right by LNeuge

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

The evening stage shows were fabulous! There were also many opportunities to see the newest Disney movies (4!), magicians, comedians, and participate in or watch live game shows. The port towns in Alaska are tiny, so when the ship is docked for 8 or 12 hrs, I was very glad we had signed up for excursions AND that we were allowed to go on and off the ship as we pleased. There were so many good meal options that I didn't want to miss a dinner on board. Bring your expandable pants!!! Tracy Arm was too heavy with ice so we went down Endicott Arm for our glacier viewing experience. That's when I most appreciated our room balcony because the decks topside were crazy crowded. The only other place that ever felt crowded was the Beach Blanket Buffet. We made a point of having breakfast and lunch at Triton's (table service) or Parrot Cay (excellent buffet). Also, there is no extra charge for the character breakfast, so schedule it early on. We waited several days and got one of the last slots available.

Worst Vacation Ever by MikeFromVA

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

Hundreds of passengers and crew were sick with the norovirus and food poisoning by the end of day two.  Disney used to be meticulous at cleaning and disinfecting if an outbreak occurred on a ship-- not anymore-- so the virus spread like wildfire across the ship.  Our entire family did not leave the ship in Nassau because we were all down with the virus.  By the last day, many of the hallways and cabins had sewage smell because so many people were sick and the plumbing was being overwhelmed.

 

We did manage to have three meals together as a family before we all got sick.  One of the main reasons we are return Disney Cruise guests is because of the food.  The food used to be great-- something you would tell your friends about.  Now, the food is mediocre at best (a couple steps above the mall food court).

 

Bottomline-- the Disney Cruise Line used to be great.  Definitely not worth your hard earned money.

Review of Disney Wonder trip by Cruiser708

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Caribbean - Western

It was a really fun vacation as planned by Kathy at Dream Vacations.  We had a budget, we had a timeline and she delivered.  She made it simple for us.  Disney Cruise delivers so much on so many levels.  It's such a rare feeling to actually feel like you got your money's worth for something these days.  Disney gives you that feeling.  They put so much detail in to everything.  Just. Wow.

Disney wonder 5 night carribean cruise by traciaber7

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Caribbean - Western

I will start with the positives of this trip because it was incredibly memorable! We loved all of the food, didn't matter which restaurant or which poolside bar it came from every piece or food and/or drink was top notch! The service we had was outstanding, from cruise members giving direction, to room service to maid service! Outstanding!!!! I took my 12 yr old for her birthday and we both had an excellent time. Areas I think could be improved, all the pools with the exception of the adult pool were very very small! Wasn't much for the kids over 10 to really enjoy in that aspect. Also, we needed to purchase additional long sleeved attire to wear while inside of the ship! Seemed like every time we were inside we were freezing!

Disney Wonderful by jeromed

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

Everything was wonderful. Service was great - had special needs because

of physical disability. Staff on Disney Wonder went beyond to assist my

family and I in every way. Wish we had more time to do all activities on a

4 day cruise. Food outstanding. Any and all of our requests were fulfilled.

Just ask! Our family would have been OK with two days on Castaway.

The wind canceled a few of the excursions.

All in All Disney Wonderful.

First cruise by dan767

We did not know what to expect as this was our first cruise.  Beyond our expectations.  The kids had a wonderful time. The shows were great for the entire family.

Spring Break Cruise with Family by rlamantia

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Caribbean - Western

We had a great time. The food was excellent the service, the shows were top notch. The only problem that we had was my younger daughter Jessica, could not put her little one in the day care due to him having to wear underwear. He is potty trained, but occasionally has an accident. So he still wears pull ups. She did not bring underwear with her just the pull ups and the Disney Store did not have size 2 Toddler underwear only 4 T, which was too big.  So he could not go in the nursery. So she did not get any adult time with her husband like she had planned on. The only other complaint was the size of the kids pools. She also could not take him in the kids pool for the same reason. so he was only able to go into that splash pool. So since she could not go into the adult pool because she couldn't put him into the day care she did not enjoy the pool part during the day. Which was not fun for her or the little one.

It was everything we expected it to be and more! by holldoll777

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Caribbean - Western

I've been dreaming of going on a Disney cruise for 15 years and this lived up to every expectation. There was SO much for my kids to do (4 & 7) that they didn't go to bed until after midnight every night (that's not normally allowed at home). We enjoyed the adult only pool area while they were in the kids clubs. We had a great time as a family. The food was great! Castaway Cay was BEAUTIFUL! We rented the bikes and took a bike ride which the kids loved. The Wonder is Disney's oldest ship and hasn't been refurbished. You could tell in the carpets, but everything else looked great. They will be refurbishing it this fall and we can't wait to get back on it in Sept 2017 for the Panama Canal cruise!

Disney Family Cruise by captndaffy

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

The Disney cruise concept is ideal for families of almost every age. We enjoyed the adult areas and restaurants, and our daughter, 6, loved the pools and Oceaneers Club.  The destinations were perfect for a short cruise. The only negatives would be the seating times, for we had a 8:15 seating, which was very late for our child. having more free form eating options would be better.

also the Customs procedure in Miami on are disembarkation was quite slow, and understaffed.

Overall a great experience.

reviewing our cruise by cmrosema

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Caribbean - Western

We loved the Disney Cruise.  I went with my daughter, her husband, and their two daughters.   Each staff person was exceptional, making the trip more enjoyable.   The food was fabulous, and our server even saw to it that I had Disney's famous bread pudding with vanilla sauce for dessert three evenings.  (I had asked if it would be served while we were cruising).    There are only two things I could suggest that would improve the cruise for me.   The coffee is weak - not strong enough.   I found this surprising.   Also, real maple syrup is not served with pancakes & french toast.   They serve what they call 'breakfast syrup', and this should be changed.    

All in all, though, we loved the cruise and hope to go again.

What a great vacation!  Disney has the service, accommodations, food, and experience figured out.  This was my first cruise but sure it won't be my last!

Great cruise by wolfeyes

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

For my first cruise it was great. Easy to get on the boat and off. Very friendly staff and helpful. Food was great especially dinner. There was great shows ever night and the kid love meeting the characters. Our glass bottom cruise was cancel due to ruff waters. My only complaint was a key West excursion we did. The butterfly and aquarium it would of been cheaper to walk up and pay I was charge 25 for a crappy tour ride to the butterfly house and back would not recommend.

Lovely Cruise! by slightlysilly

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Caribbean - Western

We were on a five day cruise out of Miami with stops to Grand Cayman and Castaway Cay.  We left on February 12th just as the northeast was experiencing a polar vortex and an ice storm, so it was nice to get away.  The Wonder is a smaller ship than the Fantasy or the Dream, you could tell that the Wonder is older too.  It is in need of refurbishment and painting in areas, but I'm told that it will be going into dry dock in September 2016.  Our room was on Deck 5 Cat 5c Oceanview with Veranda.  The room seemed smaller than our room in the same category on the Dream.  The room needed an upgrade, cabinets were stuck and squeaky.  Otherwise the room was fine.  We were right next to the elevators and stairs and right next to the Buena Vista theater where the movies are shown.  If you don't like the smell of popcorn, I do not recommend this room.  

 

We ate at all the dining rooms and had Palo Brunch and Dinner.  The food in the dining rooms was adequately prepared, tasty, but nothing exceptional.  The exceptional stuff can be found on Palo.  If you have a sea day on your cruise, book Palo Brunch post haste, you will not be disappointed.  Try the chicken parm... I know, I know.. what's so special about chicken parm?  Trust me, just try it.  For the Palo dinner, try the chocolate souffle... it's TO DIE! 

 

Our 12 year old son made use of the Edge tween club.  We didn't see him much as he was hanging out with his new friends. Lots of Gaga ball and tournaments of every kind. He still speaks with them through snap chat and instagram and trust me, our son is not very outgoing. 

 

I hate to admit this, but we are not Disney people, so we didn't stand in line for characters, attend any kind of character breakfasts or meals, I high fived Woody as he walked through the corridor once. 

 

The shows are good, very well done, probably the best I've seen on a cruise ship. 

 

Service was great, Alvero in Palo is fantastic.  We also had Harlan in the dining room, both great!

Great family vacation! by rlipon

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Caribbean - Southern

Loved the service and the ports of call. It was such a great experience even with a young child (15 months). I wish my son had done better in the nursery, but they certainly tried quite hard to make him happy and comfortable, he just did not like being in a strange place with strange people. Generally though, we felt like we were incredibly accommodated and the service staff was amazing!

 

Thanks, Rebecca

Best cruise ever!!! by carlosporta

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)

since you get onboard they make you feel special and unique. I just have compliments and good memories of the cruise personnel from the stateroom cleaner to every of the waiter/waitress that were there for us at all time. Kudos to Disney and the special ways of doing business.

Great for Kids, not for Adults... by jnbrown80

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

I would recommend a Royal Caribbean cruise over this cruise by far for both Kids and Adults.  The food throughout was subpar.  The shows, characters, and service were overall great.  The ships daily scheduling needs addressing as there was too much downtime and dining options limited to their schedule.  Dining options were more like a "cattle call" instead of a pleasurable dining experience.  

 

I would not recommend a disney cruise unless you just want to see the characters, but then have fun waiting in the hour long lines to get pictures and signatures.  

 

Save your money!

Wonderful World of Disney by trp99

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Disney Wonder / Destination: Caribbean - Bahamas

This was our 16th cruise, however our first with Disney. It was great. The service, entertainment and cleanliness were all way above par! We really enjoyed it. We were very happy that there were so many adults only things available since we have no children. I would highly recommend this cruise to anyone.
