We took our 4 year old grandson on a Disney Cruise to Alaska. We chose this itinerary because it did not involve any long flights. The weather actually co-operated for the most part and our day touring the glaciers in Tracey Arm was warm ... Read more

You learn something new every day. After our first cruise, we learned that a full price ticket doesn't always buy you a full cruise, even with Disney in control. First-time cruisers, beware! Look into travel insurance, arrive in port at ... Read more

We have been on 45 cruises, and unfortunately the Wonder was our 40th and our worst. We complained for 5 nights to get some heat in our room (remember this is Alaska!). We got it the last night at sea. The music in the dinning room split ... Read more

We have been on five previous cruises, all with Princess. Perhaps, if this was our first cruise, this review would be more favorable. After saying that, I have to admit that we did not cruise with children before. We cruised this time ... Read more

This was my 9th cruise, but my first time on Disney. I love the Disney brand and their commitment to family fun, but it comes at a very high price. Embarkation in Vancouver was similar to waiting in line for a ride at Disneyland - ... Read more
