I was on the Wonder before its last major drydock and at the time, found a few deficiencies. After having been on the Magic last summer, I noticed that Disney has been spending a bit more time taking care of the Wonder and the ship appears to be in great shape for a 20-year old ship. This cruise featured a relatively unique Southern Caribbean itinerary for Disney, where they spend less than a month a year. Stops included Antigua, Bonaire, Aruba and St.Marteen. Most islands had their charm - with the potential exception of St.Marteen which is still in rough shape one year after Irma. Service in the main dining room was beyond excellent. Great attention to details, and allergy concerns. I made a comment around the food not being to its usual standard on night 3 and let's just say that food quality (and quantity) was not an issue on any other nights afterward. I found the buffet in Cabana to be a little better on the Magic during a European cruise. Food at Cabana's was generally quite overcooked - although no complaints on overall quality and quantity. Our main server team was one of the best we have had. We also met throughout the ship other dining staff that we had on previous cruises and they remembered us. We had brunch and dinner once at Palo and the experience was excellent as always Kids club on Disney is always excellent. This particular cruise had a little less programming than usual - with a bit more open house time. Still plenty to do for kids though. Both the Club and Lab are very modern and have been regularly updated throughout the years. The main Disney shows were good, with the highlight being Frozen. The non-Disney entertainers on this group were ok but I have seen better on other DCL cruises. Photography staff were very friendly and efficient. We recognized a few staff from a previous cruise, and they did recognize us as well - and this led to some great memories. The one area where the Wonder is a bit weaker is on board water activities. Only one main, relatively small pool (for families) and one water slide. Adult area is well maintained with good entertainment and drink options. Loved this DCL cruise and already booked on next year's version of this cruise. Very adequate gym, forward, on Deck 9 with great "bridge-like" views The port of San Juan as an Embarkation port is a bit underwhelming but check-in was very quick and so was boarding once it started. The port is in the midst of major renovations so it will probably look great in a few years from now. On shore excursions, we had 1 excellent one, 2 very good ones, and one so-so. Value for money on some of those wasn't great, but this is typical of cruise lines booked port adventures. Read Less

We loved pretty much everything about the cruise we went on. We were a little worried, thinking, how much better can it be over Royal Caribbean. The price was more than double what we could have done on RCI, but our daughter really wanted to go on a Disney cruise, so we gave it a shot. Well, the saying, you get what you pay for, totally fits in this situation. We flew to San Juan a day early and stayed at Marriott's Stellaris Resort & Casino. The reason we chose this hotel is because it is the hotel that Disney offers transportation from. We met at the Disney desk in the morning, when told to meet, and were relatively quickly put on a tour bus heading to port. When we arrived at port, we were told to NOT get into line. Once everyone was off the bus, we were lead around the huge line of people, directly to the front of the security line. That was a great perk for the transportation. The whole boarding process was WAY smoother than we have ever experienced on RCI or NCL. Mickey and Minnie made an appearance for photos too. The ship, although ~20 years old, was extremely well maintained. It looked pretty much perfect all over. While we were onboard, there was activity from the staff to fix random things, keeping everything looking good. Their activity was never in the way though. Our cabin was 6142. The cabin itself was great. The layout was really nice, with plenty of room. The bed was a lot better than any other cruise for us. Our daughter slept on the pull out sofa, which was actually quite comfortable. This cabin has the Navigator's Verandah, so it was surrounded by metal walls and did not have a glass railing, but metal. It was still very nice, with plenty of room to see around. The only negative I have about the cabin was the noise. We never herd noise from other cabins, but we heard noise and felt a lot of vibration each time we came into port and left port. I am pretty sure it was every time the side propulsion was used to move the ship sideways. Our cabin host was fantastic, and always figured out our schedule to get in when were not there and be done before we came back. A few days, we had pretty odd schedules and assumed we would run into her, but we never did. Our dining attendants were also fantastic. Not only was the service impeccable, but the food was also amazing. Our waiter pretty much demanded that we order everything that we think we might like, so we had several meals each night. Everything we had was very good, and we are pretty picky eaters. Our daughter became a big fan of Pete's Boiler Bites, so would sometimes skip dinner, but was still with us. They made her feel right at home and did not make her feel bad for not eating in the dining room. The entertainment was a lot better than we expected. The acting/singing/dancing was similar to what you would see on Broadway. The character experiences were really great as well. Not only the planning/intervals of them coming out, but also the actual characters. They didn't just stand there and be in a pic. They interacted with each person as they came up through the line. The southern Caribbean is great, and the ports are very nice. We had a great time at each port. We made excursion plans through Disney on all but one port. During the St. Maarten excursion, which was through Disney, the only complaint I have is that we were handed off 3 or 4 times to different representatives, who didn't really make it clear what we were doing. We were just following them, but during the hand-off, communication would have decreased the confusion. We absolutely loved it, did the $250 future cruise booking, and are already planning another. That should speak for itself. Read Less

Jan 27-Feb 3 Southern Caribbean. This was one of the best Disney Cruises we have been on. The service, food, entertainment, ports and condition of ship are all top notch. This is a smaller boat in the DCL line, however it lacked nothing (except the crowded feeling of larger ships). The shows on this boat are not to be missed, especially Frozen. The kids club does an excellent job of making the kids feel not only entertained ,but comfortable. Our children are 5 and 12. Our oldest enjoyed every minute of Edge and our youngest fought us to leave the kids club at pick up time as she was having such a good time. We met so many wonderful people on this boat and felt that was due to the intimacy of the smaller ship. We visited Aruba, Bonaire, Antigua and St. Maarten. We did not care for Antigua as we felt the area right off the ship was full of people haggling us for a taxi, braids... you name it. I would highly recommend booking an excursion in this area or staying on the boat. We enjoyed all the other ports and felt very safe. We cannot wait to book another cruise on the Disney Wonder.
