Cruise Line: Disney
Ship: Disney Wonder
Sailing Date: February 11th, 2001
This being my first cruise, I was very nervous that I would forget something or not be prepared for what I was about to see and do. First, the information Disney provided was very informative. All the documents were clear and I had them prepared well ahead of time. Checking in was easy. There were TV's and a replica ship for us to enjoy. Minnie also posed for pictures before we boarded. I was traveling with my 3 year old son and he was very excited. We were brought in to a wonderful buffet and I soon asked if our cabin was ready because my son was wiped out from the trip. The room was beautiful. A queen bed, sofa, table, and a good size veranda with two chairs. We took a short nap and then signed up for the children’s activities and took part in the short drill. Dinner was at the animators palate. What a nice dinner show. My son loved all the colors. The food was good and the service was near perfect. We decided to catch a movie that night. Second day we were in Nassau. Shopping was good, but we chose to head back early to take part in the activities on the ship. The best day was in Castaway Cay. It was a beautiful day. The water was just slightly chilly, but we, along with most people, spent several hours in the water. Lunch was a buffet and it was plentiful. Disney characters were also greeting the children and having a dance party on the beach. Drinks were good but expensive. You didn't need money on this island, as always, the room card was your method of payment for shirts, drinks, etc. The island was full of shells. My son and I collected many shells to bring home. After returning home, my son repeatedly asked when we were going again, so I have booked cruise 2 on the Wonder for December!
