Ports of Call: Disney Wonder typically sails out of Galveston, Texas; New Orleans; San Diego; and Vancouver. Itinerary destinations include Grand Cayman, the Bahamas, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Key West, Mexico and San Francisco.

 

Our April sailing departed San Diego, California, for Ensenada, Mexico, for a weekend cruise. The two-day sailing kicked off with a true Disney send-off, including dance parties and characters waving our San Diego port good-bye. Trusting our bags would make it to our room, my mom and I lay by the pool, trying to soak in some sun before dinner. We felt the ship whir beneath us, pushing us out to sea.

 

A couple of hours later we found our bags waiting for us in our deluxe ocean-view stateroom with a veranda. With a queen-sized bed and a sitting area offering a couch, TV and desk with storage space, the room could have felt cramped for two people, but the walk-out veranda with outside seating really elevated the room, making it feel infinitely larger. The room design made great use of the space, including a restroom separate from the shower, allowing two people to get ready at the same time.

 

The all-inclusive nature of a Disney cruise provides a never-ending embarrassment of riches. Each restaurant offers more food than the next, and on such a short a cruise, it’s difficult to make time for it all … though we tried. The price of admission includes a fitness center, live shows and nightly entertainment, youth clubs and themed parties, various age-appropriate pools, self-serve ice cream, recreation activities, daily character experiences and inclusive dining at all restaurants with the exception of Palo — the adults-only, fine-dining Italian restaurant requires a dress code and additional fees.

 

Bring something warm to wear for the pirate party and fireworks finale! The air gets colder than you might expect, and this show is a must — Disney’s cruise ships are the only vessels offering fireworks shows at sea.

 

Arrive early to onboard entertainment and shows. Some of the more popular productions, like Frozen, A Musical Spectacular and movie premiers fill up quickly and are first-come, first serve.
