Saturday-Embarkation on board the Disney Wonder was fast and smooth. No problems were encountered. It was exciting to hear Disney Cruise staff call our last name as we walked on board. We felt like celebrities and we had only been inside the ship less than 1 minute.
Sunday- DAY AT SEA- It was a relaxing day. The weather was beautiful. There was no rain. This day and the remainder of the cruise was great because we never got any rain! Wherever we went, you saw Walt Disney's pictures, pictures of animated drawings, famous movies, and you would also hear music playing from Classic Disney Movies such as Mary Poppins and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The staff was professional. The service was "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"!
We met a waiter from the Dominican Republic near the adult pool area. He was very friendly and helpful. He told us of a "cafe" where other fancy desserts and additional snacks could be found free of charge and were super delicious. By the way, the Toy Store musical was amazing and I would recommend it to both children and adults! Today and every day we saw different princesses and Disney Characters roaming around the ship and taking pictures with both young and old. I felt like a little girl reliving my childhood Disney years.
Monday-Our day in Cozumel was amazing! We arrived at a port we had never been before. This was our 4th time in Cozumel. It was clean and bigger. There was an indoor mall. We were lucky to find a gentleman who took us on a horse and carriage. The gentleman took us on a tour of the place which included: A Catholic Cathedral, a nice neighborhood, and nearby stores. The gentleman even allowed us to go inside the church and take pictures while he waited for us. The weather was perfect at Cozumel. We did a little bit of shopping. We thought the prices were reasonable. We ate some home- made tacos at a local restaurant and had dessert at a "Mc Donalds". The dessert tasted different and was delicious! We will love to go back. No complaints whatsoever! The Disney show that evening again, was great! Again, it was nice seeing princesses and characters all over the ship. We also had an upper deck party with Disney's Characters. Mickey even went across a zip line! How professional everything looked! We also saw fire works. What a wonderful surprise it was!
Tuesday-Day at Sea-We enjoyed doing some more shopping and this time, inside the ship. We spent some time relaxing and getting to know the ship. We relaxed and went to another show. It was great to be able to celebrate my husband's birthday inside the Disney Wonder. While at Palo's Restaurant, a staff member wrote on one of their restaurant plates "happy birthday" with my husband's name in chocolate. It was so classy. While inside this beautiful restaurant, we met the chef who cooked our lovely meal on that day. Our chef was nice enough to even interview a couple and friend of ours who are Vegan and asked them what they "did not like". The food was to die for. If you ever go on board the Disney Wonder, you need to select at least one day and visit PALO restaurant. You will not regret it! The only problem you will encounter is that you will not be able to eat for the remainder of the evening after indulging a five course meal. Our server, Eve, was fantastic. Thank you!!!
Wednesday-Disney's Castaway Cay-Today we visited Disney's private island, Castaway Cay. What a beautiful island and place it was to spend the entire day! We laid out near one of the Cabana's at the beach and stayed there for a few hours in the shaded area. It was nice to just be able to relax on the sun, read a book, and just enjoy some quiet time. One of the highlights of been at Castaway Cay was several crew members, including our waiter on board the ship went to the island and cooked for us. We even had a long selection of desserts, ice cream, and fruits enough to feed an army. It was again, over the top! It was nice to see all of Disney's Characters late that evening in the lobby greeting their guests one last time and allowing everyone one last opportunity to take pictures with them! What a beautiful day it was! That day will stay with us for an eternity!
Disembarkation-Today we left to go home, but we left the Disney Wonder very happy and with beautiful memories. The trip was a great success. Leaving the ship was such a smooth process. We can honestly say we will be back on another Disney Cruise. Disney Cruises are not just for kids. Disney Cruises are for both young and old.
