Most reviews you read are about what that person thought and I never find those very informative as we all have different likes and dislikes. I enjoy the reviews where I get inside info and tips about the cruise that I may not have known/discovered otherwise, so my review I intend to give some tips and advice that may or may not help you out if planning a Disney Cruise on the Wonder, rather than my personal opinions on everything.

First thing we dealt with on doing the cruise was a car seat with our 4 year old son. To use one for the taxis/transportation or not? To check it both ways on the airline would have cost us $50. We decided not to take one and none of the taxis we used required us to use one when we used their services. We just sat him in the back next to one of us using the seat belt in the vehicle. Again, personal choice, but letting you know that nobody we used was enforcing the use of one while in their vehicle.

If you are flying into your cruise destination, you will need transportation from the airport to the terminal. Disney offered bus service for the 5 of us at $150. We took our chances and just found a taxi (van style) and were charged $50 for the ride (Seattle airport to dock). Plenty of taxis when you leave the dock back to the airport also.

Cabin Review

Cabin 9A

The only complaint about our cabin was the sound of "banging" pipes from above in the evening and early morning hours. We think it had something to do with the fact that our cabin was below Parrot Cay kitchen. Overall, it wasn't that bad as we were up early most mornings anyways. Storage area was fantastic with plenty of places to put all of our stuff! Beds were really nice also. Split bathroom is genius with toilet/sink in one and sink/shower/tub in other. Giant porthole was also great especially near the glacier!
