FIRST Disney Cruise

I just booked a last minute sailing on the 7-night Southern Caribbean sailing out of San Juan on the Wonder on January 27th for Jon, Penny, and me! I went on a Royal Caribbean cruise once when I was like 12 and Jon and Penny have never sailed at all. We have the 2nd seating for dinner (all that was available) and currently have a Palo dinner booked our last night (all that was available), a sail/beach/snorkel in Bonaire, the princess and Frozen meet and greets, and a swim with the stingrays in Antigua. I'm planning on rushing to the front desk when we get on board (earliest check in time still available was 12pm) to try and get a Palo brunch, the character breakfast, and a mixology seminar but I'm not holding my breath on any of them.

All my cruise veterans, give me all your tips for us first timers! We are ecstatic but only have my surface research to go off of.

So I got overly excited and messaged you immediately when I read this LOL I preferred "talking" to you over posting here. Sounds like it is going to be amazing! If you have any questions, just ask, you know where to find me.

Sounds awesome. I haven't been on the Wonder yet. My next two cruises are on the Wonder -- Alaska in September and Bahamas out of New Orleans in February 2020.

I've only been on two cruises so far. My advise is for you and Jon to both get the app. You can message each other on the ship and all the daily activities are posted. Take a tour of the ship if you can. A lot of good information.

Great tips, thank you! I'll be sure to come back with as much info about the Wonder as I can. I'm SO jealous you're doing the Alaska cruise! That one is on my bucket list. And New Orleans sounds awesome, too!
