Disney Wonder was WONDERFUL
I cannot say enough about the way that I was treated by ALL of the staff on the Disney Wonder on my cruise to Alaska 5/21 to 5/28/2012! The servers assigned to the family for dinner could not have been more gracious or considerate. We have a number of allergies and food problems and after we told them the first night we never had to say anything again. When we had breakfast or lunch and they weren't working our table, they came over to let the current server know what our desires were and to be sure we were taken care of. Josef the head server even remembered my name when I ran into him on deck and needed direction on how to get where I wanted to go. I don't know how they chose the family with whom we shared our table, but it was a very good fit. The children were the same age and got along great. The adults turned out to have much in common as well. Nothing like making new friends 2000 miles from home!!
The stateroom had more than enough room for us and we were able to More unpack and put everything in the drawers and plenty of hangers in the closet so we didn't have to fall over suitcases. The stateroom host was very considerate. The children's clothes were nicely folded and placed on the counter each day and their stuffed animals were given places of honor on their bed each day by the stateroom host. They loved the towel animals each night. He was especially kind to me the morning I was a bit under the weather. :(
The captain made announcements several times a day to let us know what we were going to see and how he expected the weather to be -- ie. will it be rough or not so we could decide on dramamine or not??? We weren't able to get through to Tracy Arms for the glaciers because the previous ships had to turn around because the ice was too thick to reach the glaciers, so the Captain made a detour and took us to where we could come close to another glacier. I don't know how Tracy Arm could surpass what we saw as what we did see was amazing.
There was always enough to do on the ship while at sea for both the adults and the children. No complaints there. The only complaint is I hated to come back home. THE STAFF SPOILED ME FOR REAL LIFE BACK HOME!! Less

Cabin review: 6A6548
The family had two cabins. Mine with the children was with a veranda. It was more than adequate for us all. We had plenty of storage room. The bathroom was split so we had two sinks which was great. Both sides of the bathroom were more than large enough for the one person using it at a time. The balcony was wonderful to have to be able to enjoy the ocean breeze and the views without having to go up on deck especially when it was raining. It was quiet and we didn't hear any noise from either room on either side. The other cabin was inside and across the hall for my son and his wife and it was plenty large enough for them and all their things. My one complaint is that we couldn't use the balcony for 2 days because during one port call they varnished the railing and we could not lean on it, plus there was the awful smell. We couldn't leave the door open for the breeze because the smell was so strong it caused nausea. The service by the stateroom host was outstanding and we wanted for nothing.
