My wife and I are veteran cruisers ( mostly Holland America) but this was first time on Disney with daughter, son-in-law, and 2 grand-daughters.
So many positives--shows were a much higher quality than I expected, rotational dining was wonderful--my grand-daughters were charmed by Anthony, our server.
Our 5 year old grand-daughter loved the character breakfast, the princess tea--she loved it all. Our 2 year-old was a bit overwhelmed by the characters.
Food was fine--not up to Holland America standards but certainly acceptable. We dined one night in Palo--excellent--worth the $20 charge.
Getting information from Customer Service before the cruise was sometimes difficult. This was a re-positioning cruise for the Wonder from LA to Vancouver where it will be doing Alaska cruises for the summer. Alaska does not permit fireworks so we were mistakenly informed there were no fireworks on our cruise--there were fireworks.
Unfortunately, we hit cold and windy weather from day 2---since the Wonder has no provision for covering the pool areas, we really couldn't enjoy that feature.
Don't want this to sound overly negative---we really did have a fabulous time and probably will look forward to a warmer climate in 2-3 years.
Two days in San Francisco--we booked Alcatraz on our own (big savings)--very interesting. Day 2 we took the grandchildren to Pier 39 and they enjoyed the day.
Unfortunately, iffy weather altered our plans--we did the museum and enjoyed the Imax film "Flight of the Butterflies." We also took a harbor ferry to Fisherman's Wharf.
