Disney Cruise Line - Part II

This ship is the second cruise ship operated by Disney Cruise Line and was launched in 1999. The Disney Wonder alternates between 3- and 4-night cruises. Visiting Nassau and Disney's own private island Castaway Cay, with the 4-night cruise offering an additional day at sea. The Disney Wonder will be relocated to Los Angeles, California. The arrangement will be for two years, with a potential extension for three additional years. On September 11, 2009 Disney Cruise Line announced that the Wonder will have 18 and 7 night sailings to Alaska during the 2011 summer.

Animator’s Palate (also my favorite restaurant)-- which celebrates the magic of Disney animation. This dining experience starts off with the room being black and white, and as your meal progresses, the magic of Disney takes hold and by dessert, you are enveloped in the beautiful and colorful animation from beloved Disney films. (sample menu)

Triton’s (my 2nd favorite restaurant on the ship)-- serves contemporary American fare for breakfast and lunch, and continental cuisine with a French flair amid a more elegant setting for dinner. The restaurant is themed after the hit Disney movie, The Little Mermaid. (sample menu)

Parrot Cay-- Inspired by the relaxed feel of the tropics, Parrot Cay boasts classic American fare for breakfast and lunch, and Caribbean island grill house specialties for dinner. (sample menu)
