Disney Southern Caribbean Cruise Review
The Disney Southern Caribbean Cruise returned to Disney Cruise Lines Caribbean sailing options this year. Leaving from San Juan, Puerto Rico, the seven night cruise stops in Grenada, Martinique, Barbados, Antigua, and St. Kitts. We loved this cruise! Although nothing is perfect, we were so enamored that we booked our next Disney Cruise while we were still on the ship (* benefits of this below). Read on for details of this wonderful experience.
Disney Cruise Line has four ships in its fleet. The Disney Wonder is one of the two smaller ship; though, it is not really that small having 875 staterooms and 2400 passengers. The Disney Wonder was the second ship in the fleet debuting in 1999. It is scheduled for an update later this year, but is excellent the way it is. You definitely know that you are traveling with Disney with details from Disney films and cartoons everywhere, but the design is still both tasteful and stylish. We are Disney fans; so, this fits us perfectly.
We had a lower level stateroom with a portal window. Only interior rooms with no windows are less expensive. Disney Cruise Line is known for having some of the largest staterooms in the cruise industry. Our room was approximately 216 square feet with a king bed and sleeper sofa. It was really quite comfortable. The bed is one of the most comfortable on which I have ever slept. With a great mattress and the gentle, cradle-like rocking of the boat, we all slept like babies. Our room had a split bathroom with a sink in the bath half and another in the toilet half. This made it much easier for each of us to get ready for the day or for bed.
