Disney Cruise Line Disney Wonder July, 2001

This was my second cruise on the Disney Wonder this year. In July I and 3 of my sisters cruised on the Wonder in a category 5 cabin. Every aspect of that cruise was terrific; however the same can't be said for the 11/18 sailing I took with my husband and 15 year old daughter. We were on the waitlist for a category 3 cabin (1 bedroom suite). About 3 weeks prior to the sailing we were called and told this category was available. We were very excited because when we first cruised Disney in 1998 we had this same cabin type and were blown away by the cabin, service, etc. and felt the approximately $5000 we paid was worth every cent. However, the bloom is definitely off the rose for us now.

The embarkation was uneventful even with the redundant security procedures we had to go through (we had to show photo id to 3 separate people who were not stationed more than 20 feet away from each other. I kid you not). At this just too corny. After observing some of them I had to agree. The counselors there were no help. They could not have been less interested in providing entertainment for them. The food was palatable and the service pretty good. Prior to this cruise we were planning to take the 7 day cruise next year but I think this is probably the last on Disney for us. It's just too expensive to be less than stellar in every regard.
