A cruise for the whole family, Disney Cruise Line has taken the amazement of Disney's movies and theme parks and miraculously packaged them onto the Disney Wonder Cruise Ship. What could be better than enjoying the magical world of Disney while sailing to exotic and exciting Disney Wonder destinations like the Bahamas and Castaway Cay? Spacious staterooms with exceptional attention to detail, restaurants with unique Disney themes and varying menus and tons of onboard activities for kids and adults alike, Disney thought of everything in developing this ship.
From Port Canaveral, on the Space Coast of Florida, the Disney Wonder Cruise Ship sets sail for the delights of the Bahamas on three and four-day excursions. After a night at sea, enjoying the high-times to be had onboard, the Disney Wonder Cruise Ship pulls into port at the vibrant capital of the Bahamas. Among Disney Wonder destinations, Nassau is full of some of the most exciting and educational activities. The beaches are glowing white and the waters are turquoise, perfect for snorkeling and enjoying the many varieties of undersea life. At Pearl Island, you can watch up close tame stingrays and learn about their unique place in the marine world.
Take a fun and instructional tour of the city of Nassau and learn about the fascinating history of pirates on these islands. A party-boat excursion is perfect for an afternoon sightseeing outing, and the Adastra Gardens and Zoo give up-close examples of the wildlife and flora of the Caribbean.
Did you know that among the Disney Wonder destinations, Nassau was a regular stopping ground for the infamous pirate Blackbeard, and is also known for the incredible preservation work it has maintained on its many beautiful mansions, military forts and cathedrals? Climb the 66 steps of the Queen's staircase for an amazing view of the city, or cross the cay to Coral Island and climb the hundred foot tower to view the city and the bay from afar. Take the short trip over to the Island town of Paradise, where the nightlife has no end and there are casinos, restaurants and fabulous resorts. Near Paradise Island is a bay with many marinas from which you can hire a boat for a sailing or motorboat tour of the coastline.
Disney Wonder Destinations in Cataway Cay
When you're worn out from all that Nassau has to offer, Castaway Cay is the antidote among Disney Wonder destinations. This private island, special to Disney Wonder destinations, is undeveloped and gets you as close to a Robinson Crusoe place as there is to be found. There is a separate beach for adults, and the swimming and snorkeling is excellent. Take a guided walking tour during which you learn all about the geology and plant life on the islands, particularly the mangroves which are essential for the local birds and marine life. Then take off on a Kayak, skimming over the surface of brightly colored coral reefs and tropical fish, and take a swim at another secluded beach.
Or take off on a speedy catamaran for another snorkeling and swimming tour. This stop is truly the Island getaway you've always dreamt about. And like many Disney Wonder destinations, Castaway Cay offers an exciting and highly educational tour for kids.
Whether you've been living it up in one of Nassau's glitzy dance clubs or enjoying some of the many activities offered onboard, when it's time to kick off your shoes and lay back, the Disney Wonder Cruise Ship has six varieties of staterooms designed to suit your needs. Imported tile and warm woods abound inside the staterooms, which are designed to address the needs of families in particular. With different bedding options, some of these rooms can comfortably accommodate as many as five people. Every room has televisions, private baths and voice messaging, and three of the plans have private verandas.
A vacation on the Disney Wonder Cruise Ship is truly designed to be an unforgettable experience for the whole family, with activities for adults and children alike. Children under seven have many things to do, such as a Seven-Dwarves dance with Snow White, countless kid games at Wonderland, and a pajama party in the fun world of the Lion King.
Disney Wonder Cruise Ship Activities
Kids eight to twelve can join in the regatta races, where small boats are made of various materials found onboard, and they can play with Goofy in a number of games and contests with prizes. The apprentice's workshop is a place where kids engage in fun experiments, playing with liquids and solids and creating a strange kind of goop only kids can really appreciate. Swimming pools may be the favorite haunt for the teens onboard, and so there are organized pool parties for them, and there are unique games such as the Amazing Race, an onboard scavenger hunt, and "Gotcha," an intriguing day-to-day game full of clues and deceptions.
Disney hasn't forgotten the adults onboard, however, and has a number of fun and interesting activities to make your trip exciting and educational. There are party planning and cooking workshops, and fascinating lectures about local customs and ocean travel. For a glimpse backstage, there are behind-the-scenes talks about Disney's many movies. If you're looking to get in your daily workout there is a full service gym, featuring all the things you'd expect from one back home, and when you're feeling like being pampered there is an onboard spa with several different herbal and thermal treatments and facials.
The spicy and flavorful cuisines of the Caribbean are the stars of the menu at the Parrot Cay restaurant, although there are several other menus available, including Mexicali, and Captain's Gala. If you're looking for an intimate fine dining experience with a mouthwatering menu, check in at Lumiere's an upscale, only French restaurant which is named for the candelabra in "Beauty in the Beast." Another romantic fine dining option is Palo, where the delights of Tuscany are served up in an elegant atmosphere. Enjoy the magical spectacle of the Animator's Palate, where the black and white walls depicting scenes from Disney movies slowly turn into rich colored illustrations while you eat dinner.
