Ship Facts: Disney Wonder Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Disney Wonder Deck Plans
A Fabulous Week

My sister and I decided to live our second childhood and take our first Disney cruise, yes, without children! We had heard that Disney takes great care of adults, and its true.

Food: We requested the second seating, and were assigned to a table with two other couples without children and of similar age. Very wise and we enjoyed getting to know them. We found Parrot Cay and Animator's Palate dining rooms to be pretty loud. So on the nights we were assigned there we opted for Palo. That is the fine dining, adult only, fabulous view restaurant on board. They take reservations for brunch and dinner for only $20.00 per person. We preferred Triton's for breakfast.

Cabin: We had 6588. It is a veranda room at approximately mid ship. It is directly across from the guest laundry room. Our worry that that would produce excess noise proved unwarranted. On arrival we found a burned out light and a mini fridge in need of defrosting. With just a mention to our cabin steward both were resolved by the time we returned from dinner. We never felt cramped, even on the 3 nights we entertained 3-5 new friends in our cabin. We just opened the veranda door and had cocktails and late night snacks from room service.

Entertainment: The main stage shows were certainly up to Disney standards! The Toy Story and Dreams shows were remarkable!!

Other Onboard Tips: there is a whole area just for adults called Route 66. It included music groups and comedians. The Cadillac lounge is an upscale lounge with great drinks and entertainment. We enjoyed the martini tasting event there. Outlook and Signals were other adult only areas we enjoyed. Good spots for coffee, snacks and reading. Be sure to pay attention to the daily news letter / schedule delivered to your cabin. There's LOTs going on!


Activities: We planned to take advantage of the spa, but never found time! We were on the go from morning till late night. We did excursions at every port. Our favorites were the float plane trip to Taku Lodge and dog sledding on the glacier. The day in Tracey Arm was spectacular! The captain did several 360 degree turns so everyone had great views. The "white thunder" of ice calving off the glacier was impressive. We also enjoyed our time touring Vancouver and Victoria. The Vancouver Marriott is a perfect place if you are spending a day pre or post cruise. It's within walking distance of the Canada Place dock. Ask for a room with a harbor view.
