With Castaway Club membership and camera on-hand, member CruiseGuy95 found that his Alaskan cruise aboard Disney Wonder was, in his words, “truly the vacation of a lifetime.”
Starting off on a good foot turned into an even better one, thanks to the perk of priority boarding as a second-time returning cruiser. Careful research didn’t hurt either, when it came time to choose a cabin. He and his family looked forward to their unobstructed verandah, anticipating the framed views of the Inside Passage.
Experience working in the hotel industry made it easy for CruiseGuy95 to recognize — and appreciate — the level of service around him. And his fellow passengers only made it more enjoyable, as he notes, “Smiling faces are in no short supply on any Disney cruise, and it’s infectious.” A fun, refreshing spirit lingered from start to finish, from the assortment of restaurants to the balance between amenities for kids and places — like Route 66 and the Quiet Cove Pool area — where adults could unwind.
The crown jewel? Perhaps the itinerary itself. Lighthouses, glaciers, curious whales and mountains as far as the eye can see … most of which were enjoyed from their very own cabin. CruiseGuy95′s advice: Splurge on the cabin and have a camera on you at all times. Read CruiseGuy95′s full review for his excursion recommendations.
