What are the different types of Disney Wonder and Magic Staterooms?
There are 9 different categories of stateroom on the Disney Wonder. These are Categories 11 to 4 for staterooms with 3 Categories of Suite. The staterooms are also divided into sub categories according to which deck they are on and for some according to the view they have from the window or balcony. Higher decks are seen as more desirable so will usually be in a higher priced sub category. Obstructed view staterooms will usually be in a lower sub category.
You will see that most of the staterooms have what is known as a ‘split bathroom’. What this means is that there are 2 separate rooms. One has the shower over a small bath, and a separate sink vanity. The other has the toilet and another sink vanity.

Whichever stateroom you choose you will be staying in some of the very best at sea – from the inside staterooms to the suites there is something for everyone. But it is important to make your choice carefully. Talk this over with your Disney travel agent who should have experience of each room type and be able to advise you not just about pricing but also help you find the very best stateroom for your budget.
Not all staterooms are created equally – even within the same Category. The location can also be very important. Do you want to be close to the pool, the restaurants, the theater? And some are best avoided as they are noisier than others or do not have such a great view. To help you decide all of these things make sure you book with a Disney cruise specialist.
