Inaugural Cruise to Alaska on Disney Wonder
We did not book any port adventures, choosing only to rent cars and drive around from locals advice. We did not regret that at all! We saved a lot of $$ and got to see things others didn't that were taking pre-paid shore excursinos.
Disney still needs to work on the following:
1. Even though the pools are heated, they aren't covered, so the walk out of the pool to the elevators is COLD! (minor criticism here as we didn's swim More and didn't come to Alaska to swim).
2. They really need to work on things for adults to do onboard that are not with their family or with their spouse. All adult activites require one of the two of these requirements and my DH would walk around aimlessly without anything to do once I was in bed and the kids were hangining out in the Edge. Watching a movie was the only thing to do.
3. Run new releases if they can! It would have been cool to see Pirates 4 before it was released - especially being the inaugural cruise. They kept playing Nemo and The Little Mermaid - really?!
Overall, the negatives listed above would not deter me from cruising with them again. The attention to detail for dining and for the kids activities compare to none, in my humble opinion.
Alaska is an amazingly beautiful state. I feel privileged to be a part of the inaugural Disney cruise to visit there. Less

Love the big port hole window. A must for Alaska! Very clean! Great host! Love the pull down bunkbeds for the kids! Does need more room for luggage, but maybe we needed to bring less! ;) Overall, our stateroom was 100% A+
