We sailed on the Wonder 10 years ago with our then 1 year old and had the most glorious time. We had since cruised on both the Fantasy and Allure of the Seas, so it’s interesting to compare experiences. The ...

Everything WONDER-FUL except for the food quality and dining options.

The Disney Wonder is indeed wonderful except in one area: Dining. Both the food quality and the dining options were substandard. When I worked at Disneyland for 3 years we were told that high menu prices are ...
