This is my first and probably the last experience with Disney Cruise Line. I have cruised with Princess, MSC and HAL before. Disney Wonder is a distant fourth place in almost all areas. Pluses: + entertainment. The shows and the ... Read more

First, a little background. DH and are in our early 40s and have sailed about 7 or 8 times before, previously on RCCL and Princess. We did the 2 night cruise to "nowhere" on Disney's Wonder in February 2011, and it was a disaster. BUT, ... Read more

Over all, we had a great time. And my kids especially enjoyed it; they have fantastic kids' programs for all ages (both oldest son and youngest son ended up with the 11-13 year olds all week). So bottom line, if you have children or ... Read more

This was my 5th cruise but first time on Disney. All the other 4 times were on Carnival ships. While I would not go on Disney without kids, it was great for people that are cruising with kids. We brought our 4 year old and he had a ... Read more

We sailed out of Long Beach, CA and it was a breeze to park and get to the ship. We asked about a suite upgrade and were directed to a supervisor who offered us a suite at about 1/3 of the price that was quoted to my son, who had upgraded ... Read more

We chose this cruise because we wanted a different cruise route and so that we could visit Disneyland in CA first. I'd done my research and knew about the troubles happening in Mexico and knew that Mazatlan had been dropped because of it, ... Read more

We just got back from the cruise, and we enjoyed it so much we talked about scheduling the next cruise while on the ship. The main positive about the Disney cruise was the staff. Every single "cast member" was exemplary. The person in ... Read more

Just got back from our trip. In the overall, it was a good experience. We were excited to be back on Disney Wonder but Mexico - we can live without and honestly, it's a waste of time to go there. The embarkation was great, only waited ... Read more

We were so excited to go with our kids and family to a Disney Cruise as we had heard good things about it. However, we were extremely disappointed. First, the cabin smelled like sewage, particularly the toilet. Disney Wonder is a ... Read more

First-time cruiser here, so I don't have any other reference points. This was a family cruise with my wife and two kids, which is why this Disney Cruise was of particular interest. Plus, this specific cruise was part of the Kids Sail ... Read more

This cruise was such a disappointment. The family areas are so loud and rambunctious, that you never want to spend time there, and the adult sections are nice, but your kids can't go in them. The kids club has so many kids, and the ... Read more
