This spectacular cruise line has capacity for 2,713 passengers, a length of 984 feet and its weight is 83,300 tons.

Disney Wonder allows its passengers to immerse themselves in the fantastic worlds only Disney can create while sailing the waters towards tropical locales. It features kids clubs, three themed pools, restaurants, entertainment on board and plenty of rooms with a special decor inspired by Disney films.
If you are curious where you can sail on a Disney cruise, here are the regions of the world they offer cruises:
West Coast & Mexican Riviera
Disney cruises sails out of San Diego to the beautiful resort towns of Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlán and, of course, Puerto Vallarta. Offered seasonally, these west coast cruises are a popular choice that also include visits to Vancouver, British Columbia and San Francisco.

Disney sails out of Port Cañaveral primarily (with also a lot of cruises out Miami) to ports like Cozumel, St. Thomas, Grand Cayman, Nassau & Falmouth. In addition, they have cruises year-round to their private island in the Bahamas: Castaway Cay.
These extended sailings offer stops on the West Coast of Mexico, as well as the Caribbean. And of course, the experience of passage through the world-famous Panama Canal, which connects the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, is included.
Offered in the late Spring through the early part of Summer, aboard this cruise you can visit glaciers, see wildlife and explore a part of the world that is as stunning to look at as it is untamed.
Disney offers 6-11-night cruises in the Mediterranean, around the British Isles or to the fjords of Scandinavia. A visit to Iceland, Norway, England, France, Spain, Italy and Greece can be done.
