My self and 3 friends will be going on the disney wonder cruise too the bahamas for 4 days. We've planned it for our spring break which is in february (we're canadian).
It is all of our first times doing a cruise and we're wondering about it being disney and us being 18-20 years in age. Can we expect to have a good time still? we're not big into alcohol but more so looking to do some sweet off shore and board activities (including eating). will there be stuff for us to do? any info would be awesome. thanks.

I have been on Disney three times. There are many adult activities on the ship. On their private island Castaway Cay, they have a separate beach for adults. I have enjoyed all three of my Disney cruises just as much as any other cruise line I've sailed on. They have great entertainment.

Yes, you have to pay for any spa treatment like facials and massages etc. If your talking about using the gym or sauna, then there is no charge. Disney has one small restaurant Palo's that is reservation only and has a surcharge. All other restaurants and buffet are no charge.

My husband and I went to Palo's for dinner one night and it was one of our favorite parts of the cruise. Our server let us try four different desserts and the food was the best we had on the boat.

I think if this is your first cruise, you will really enjoy it, as long as you don't mind A LOT of kids in general because it is a very family oriented cruiseline.

You will enjoy the Disney Ship, there are areas for adults only. There is no casino on board, which I didn't miss. The Wonder and Magic were the first two cruise ship my youngest daughter had been on, just the two of us so she spent alot of time with me and not in the children's programs. When we took a Carnivale ship (she was 16 by this time) she was not impressed. The Disney ships had a more "Classic" subdued feel to them while the Carnivale ship was party time- what I call "Vegas" feel. Don't worry about the kids, I don't recall feeling like they were a big deal,(I do like my kids but not everyone elses, haha). Do keep in mind that the ships are "Disney" and there is a lot of Disney on board, but I think Disney can appeal to all ages.
