You little beauty!

Sail Date: February 2012
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles

Just returned back to cold old Canada after spending 7 nights aboard the awesome Disney Wonder. Just to start off with, the following review is our own personal family review of what we as a family of 3 thought about our experience. Your experience will be the same, better, worse....whatever it is it is your experience as this was ours.....so take this for what it is worth. We are a small family originally from Australia but now living in Canada. We booked a 7 night MR cruise on the Disney Wonder, Feb 5th-12th out of San Pedro, CA. This was our daughters 8th birthday celebration and we booked through the Disney cruise line website. The booking was seamless and Disney was awesome. Our trip was truly one of the most exciting, wonderful, enjoying and fulfilling vacations we have experienced.

The check in and boarding was easy, smooth and without fuss. The ship is truly magnificent and as this was our first time on a Disney ship we were awestruck (have cruised to Alaska with NCL More in 2009) No amount of reviews and forums could prepare us for the unbridled service that we experienced. We were treated like royalty the entire trip, from guest services to food servers to room attendants to character interactions....if you are looking for an experience not to be forgotten then a Disney cruise is it. Make no mistake we are not hard people to please but Disney truly exceeded anything we could imagine.

The food was truly stupendous. I have read lots of reviews and took most of it with a grain of salt (no pun intended) we loved the food and truly were completely done by the end! Menus/options/buffet/fine dining/room service the Wonder had it all. Great shows, awesome pools, wonderful kids club, great port adventures....Puerto Vallarta was just OK....but Cabo San Lucas was awesome. We saw whales, dolphins, seals....and actually took photos of blue whales from our navigators verandah. Our daughter loved being sung happy birthday by our serving team (who were truly awesome) she also loved the kids activities/pools/character interactions/pirate party/ and the fireworks...but most of all she loved the towel animals our room steward made every night for her. We made new lifelong friends, were treated like royalty and would do this again in a heartbeat....we cannot speak highly enough of this trip.....do yourself and your family a favor..get rid of your phone, your stressful job, crappy weather and take advantage of a Disney cruise and just go with it!

Cabin review: Disney Wonder Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah Deck Five 7124

Our family of 3, Mum, Dad and 7 y/o daughter had a navigators verandah with large porthole above railing, room 7124.....absolutely LOVED it, would book this room again if we sailed the wonder again....why?...well the room was perfect for the 3 of us, queen bed, sofa bed for the little one, separate bath and shower was awesome, plenty of storage, hanging space, balcony was magnificent, took photos of blue whales from our balcony, nothing beats fresh sea air and wonderful views of sunsets and moonlit nights, having a wine in the evening and your private deck or a coffee in the morning is a wonderful experience. We were on deck 7, 4 rooms from that nice private little rear deck 7....uh-huh check it out!..2 decks from the buffet or 3-4 decks from the dining rooms....absolutely quiet and a absolute joy!

Port and Shore Excursions


Cabo was awesome.....paid small bucks for a glass bottom boat to take us to lovers beach, saw fish, seals, bird life, went swimming, shopping, drank cold coronas, got sun-burnt and would have stayed there longer if possible...so much so that our next trip may be a all inclusive to Cabo!

Really?......I would have swapped this place out for more Cabo Wabo anytime....just OK....wharf area a little rough....Walmart was an interesting experience....nice market outside Walmart....nothing to write home about.
