Disney Wonder Cruise Review by Doug.Rubin
- Sail Date: August 2017
- Destination: Alaska
- Cabin Type: Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Navigator's Verandah
Only 7-days, getting back to the same port (we've done repositionings and the flight planning hassle is often worth it, due to the diversity of locations one gets to experience) meant that we only had 3 relatively short port days plus a drive-by of some glacier unfreezing into a fjord.
We love the ship and the entire Disney-service experience. Food was excellent, not haute cuisine but comparable to any good-excellent restaurant that we usually visit. More importantly, my wife has a myriad of food allergies/restrictions and Disney and our servers could not have been better. I can eat salmon, while my wife next to me (who is allergic to fish oil) can have her chicken knowing that she won't be visiting the bathroom in 15 minutes.
Shows are good, but we've seen most of them previously. Kind of wish they did a little more "edgy" comedy, but this is mostly family-fare, and we like the overall atmosphere just fine.
Ports of Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan were well-traveled, comfortable and worth the visits. We choose to do our own excursions after a bit of research on the various Boards and forums and DCL generally offers a free bus service into the downtown Juneau while letting the $2 bus ply its trade in Ketchikan. Very sensible.
We like our Category 6/7 cabin which is the least expensive verandah typically near the stern. Not much vibration, except when going into port when they use their thrusters.
