posted on May 3rd, 2011 by Jason Lasecki, Public Relations Director, Disney Cruise Line, Adventures By Disney, Disney Vacation Club

It’s the day we’ve all been looking forward to – the Disney Wonder is ready for her inaugural voyage from Vancouver to Alaska!

We snapped an exclusive photo just for you of the ship in Vancouver – getting ready to embark on an incredible seven-night cruise full of adventure, culture and plenty of family fun.

My first cruise was an Alaskan cruise with a different cruise line and I had a great time. Then my second cruise was just recently on the Disney Dream and had an even better time. How I wish I had the money to combine those two experiences and be aboard the Wonder right now…

I will be going to Alaska on the Wonder in two weeks. Can’t wait!!!


Elizabeth from OH on May 3rd, 2011 at 5:30 pm

I hope everyone has a magical trip. My parents will be on this first Alaskan cruise. I am a bit jealous, but very excited for them. I believe DCL is the best of the best. I love everytime my husband and I step on the ships. I will be on the Disney Dream in Dec. Can’t wait


Tony from TN on May 3rd, 2011 at 5:33 pm

We are sailing out on May 31st for our Alaskan Crusie. Anyone else going that week?


Adina on May 3rd, 2011 at 5:37 pm

We’re taking the cruise to Alaska in June! Can’t wait!! (it’s our second Disney Cruise). Would love to know a little more about the weather while on the boat this time — are the pools covered? Open?


Megan from BC on May 3rd, 2011 at 5:44 pm

Thanks for the pics. I’m hoping to head down today to see the Wonder sail out! Wish I didn’t have to wait a whole year until my cruise!!!!!


Dina from AB on May 3rd, 2011 at 5:46 pm

Beautiful ship in a beautiful city!


Manuel on May 3rd, 2011 at 6:04 pm

Wish all of you and those on The Wander the best of bests.

We need you to keep this itinerary until Summer 2014. I have to go to the Med this year (Aug 20th) on The Magic and then go on The Fantasy for NYE 2012; and then we are planning to go to Alaska, so please keep this itinerary long enough.

God Speed and Fair Winds


Gordon from OK on May 3rd, 2011 at 6:42 pm

Tony from TN, we are sailing on that same week. I can’t wait!!


John from CA on May 3rd, 2011 at 6:47 pm

We can’t wait for our turn in July! Very anxious to see what everybody thinks of this itinerary and the excursions! Keep the blog updated!! :-)


Kara on May 3rd, 2011 at 6:49 pm

We are going in July – please keep the pictures coming – we are so excited!


Richard from KY on May 3rd, 2011 at 7:46 pm

We’re sailing on the May 24th Alaskan cruise. We are so excited we’ve almost completely packed right now!


Crystal on May 3rd, 2011 at 7:49 pm

Oh my goodness! I live in Ketchikan and I am so excited to see this ship! I just want to go on the Cruise to see more of Alaska! :) maybe one day…


Tony from TN on May 3rd, 2011 at 10:45 pm

Gordon, look me up, possibly the only person on board with an Arkansas shirt on.

I can’t wait either.


Charlene on May 3rd, 2011 at 10:53 pm

Why is she sailing southeast toward Victoria and Seattle instead of northwest along the Inside Passage?


Leslie on May 3rd, 2011 at 10:58 pm

We sailed on the Dream in February 2011 and LOVED it so much we immediately booked Alaska. We are surprising our kids and don’t plan to tell them until we can see the Wonder. We’ve spent several weeks studying Alaska and can’t wait to live what we learned.


Danielle on May 4th, 2011 at 1:30 pm

I can’t wait for our family cruise aboard the Dream in January 2012 and hopefully when our kids are older and able to appreciate Alaska and all its beauty we will be able to take a Disney Alaskan cruise!!!


Rachael from NV on May 4th, 2011 at 1:35 pm

We have been on both the Magic and Wonder…now anxiously awaiting our cruise to Alaska in June…but wondering about a few things…
1. The weather / pools. Is it going to be warm enough for the kids to get in?

2. Is there a pirate night?

3. Any advice from those of you going ahead of us?

Counting down the days!


Hector from FL on May 4th, 2011 at 6:26 pm

As far As I know there is a Pirate Night but no Fireworks on any of the Alaskan Cruises, The wonder will have a Canopy infron of the ship on deck 10 to be exact for all those wonderfull views and it s a cover canopy.


Wendy from WA on May 8th, 2011 at 12:51 pm

Anyone traveling the week of the 23 of August on the Alaska cruise?


Kymberly from WA on May 12th, 2011 at 1:43 am

Richard on May 22nd, 2011 at 11:09 am

Tony from TN… Well, I guess you won’t be the only Tennessee folks on the May 31 cruise. You can’t miss us. We’ll be the folks wearing orange UT shirts . 😉
