When the sun is beating down and the humidity is high, you'll be glad you booked your Alaskan cruise on the Disney Wonder while the snow was still blowing. Disney Cruise Line will start the 2014 Alaskan season off with a 9-day cruise leaving from Vancouver on May 24th sailing up the inside passage to Sitka, Tracy Arm, Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan before heading back to Vancouver on June 2nd.
Starting June 2nd, the Disney Wonder will be sailing 7-day cruises to Alaska beginning and ending in Vancouver with an itinerary that includes Tracy Arm, Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan. You will often hear that cruising to Alaska is the ultimate cruise but when you cruise on Disney, you add just a sprinkle of the Disney magic to it.
There is something for everyone in the family to enjoy on sea days and throughout the cruise. On sea days you'll find the kids are chomping at the bit to get to the kids club for another day of exciting activities. The younger children will have the time of their lives at Disney's Oceaneers Club and Disney's Oceaneers Lab, while the Tweens will enjoy Edge with activities geared towards their age group, that will keep them busy and having fun. Teens will love the teen club Vibe, with supervised activities created specifically for teens. For children age 3 months through 3 years, there is the Flounder's Reef Nursery, which will enable parents to enjoy a little free time.
There are no casinos on any Disney ship, however you can enjoy the bingo games which can end with a good sized Jackpot on the final day. If that's not your thing, how about some time lounging at the adult only pool area, taking in a show or a champagne brunch at Palo that is the epitome of romantic brunches!
When you board the Disney Wonder, your dining servers are assigned to you. They will follow you from restaurant to restaurant on the rotational dining schedule and quickly learn what some of your tastes are, such as your preferred dinner beverage among other things leaving you feeling spoiled and more than a little pampered at every meal.
The staterooms are large and comfortable, with divided bathrooms that enable members of the family to get ready at the same time. There is plenty of closet space and drawers to unpack and you will find laundry rooms close by that you can use to do any washing you might need to do on your trip.
The shows on board the Disney Wonder are unparalleled, and the same high quality entertainment you've become accustomed to seeing from Disney. You can see the latest releases at the movie theater on board, or take in one of the live shows such as the Golden Mickeys.
The Port Adventures on this itinerary are unlike any you've experienced. Always wanted to drive a team of sled dogs? You can do that! Walk on a Glacier? Watch Whales breach? See a mother and her baby seal float by on an iceberg? You can do that and more! Go out on a crabbing boat and pull up crab traps, then enjoy a full meal of all you can eat crab legs, or head over to Liarsville for an entertaining skit about Alaskan gold rush days and enjoy a meal of fresh caught and wood grilled salmon with all the fixin's.
A cruise to Alaska on board the Disney Wonder is a trip of a lifetime and one that no member of the family will ever forget. Now's the best time to book your summer Alaskan cruise and you can do that either online at the Disney Cruise Line website or call your favorite travel agent.
