Get passes to see the princesses, as soon as you board the ship! You get a "fast pass" with a time to see them. Enjoy the kids scheduled activities in kids clubs
Make sure you go to all of the shows that are provided! They are absolutely amazing.
Beach Blanket buffet has the best service and best selection of food. Go there for your meals!
Buy Disney Wonder/Alaska sailor hats, shirts, etc on the ship to be signed instead of bringing pillowcases. Noticed that sales items changed each day but the 2014 stuff was always on sale. You gotta admit that you were going to buy it anyway so you might as well get it signed by Mickey & the Gang.
Choose laundry times wisely. Do not wait until the last morning. Use deck plans located near the elevators for the first couple of days to find out where you need to go. They are very easy to use and can get you from point A to point B very quickly.
The children's club was very kid friendly and my granddaughter loved it!!
There was food at all times! Deck 9 was the best food at all times and many of where to choose from .from tenders to smoked salmon. Great Great Great
loved that it is on the small side, fabulous for children. if you don't want to be overwhelmed with hundreds of children, take a cruise when most kids are in school (such as November).
Reserve your port adventures as soon as they become available (a couple months before sailing)
Don't miss any of the shows and be sure the kids check out the Oceaneer's Club. We also did back to back cruises and the transition was very smooth.
Use room service anytime but especially on days when an early excursion is planned! They are very punctual!
Stay onboard during visits to Grand Cayman/Nassau, etc...nice to have the ship to yourself! Make sure to enjoy Castaway Cay, though. READ the book in the room. Lots of helpful info--ie: the ship has laundry facilities for guests to use--$1/wash, $1/dry. My 9 yo loved Animator's menu the best.
The variety of kids' shows was perfect for our 5-year old grandchild. Other activities - geared for older kids and adults - were also perfectly planned.
You are assigned a seated meal in a dining rotation. I highly suggest you do NOT go to the buffet instead!!! They always have a highlight or activity during the meal which keeps it exciting. You also find the best waitors & waitresses around!
Explore all they offer!
Its older, so for instance they would do maintenance during the day that was loud in our stateroom. We contacted guest services to find out what it was and they promptly responded and it ceased for us to catch a nap.
They have a beverage station on Deck 9 aft and we used it a lot. Beverages ordered on Room Service are charged. You need to be at least a half hour early to get a seat together. People are not supposed to save seats but they do.
Don't bother waiting in line early in the week to meet the princesses... you'll run into them throughout the week on the ship, just keep your camera handy. We actually lined up to meet 5 princesses on the last day of the cruise.. the line-up was only 20minutes long. Go to Palo twice... delicious!
Our cabin on the 8th (top sleeping level) was extremely noisy, what we believe to be from the traffic at the pools since the sounds came from above. Consider booking on level 7 instead. We didn't have so many disruptions when we stayed on 7.
