Perhaps the highlight of the cruise will be the journey though Tracy Arm, Alaska which is a fjord located close to the Alaskan city of Juneau. The ship will sail slowly through the fjord so that passengers can experience this amazing place.
There are 3 port stops on the Disney Alaskan cruise. Skagway is a small city on the south coast of Alaska which reminds visitors of a bygone era. Famous as the 19th century site of the Klondike Goldrush this is a place with a fascinating history. The biggest attraction here is an excursion on the White Pass and Yukon Route Railroad. This is one of the work’s great railway journeys and Disney passengers can experience this amazing excursion on their port stop in Skagway.
The Disney Wonder will also visit Juneau which is the state capital of Alaska. One of the most popular places to visit is the Mendenhall Glacier. This is the most accessible glacier in Alaska as you can easily reach it by bus from the port. Another popular excursion is to ride the Mount Roberts Tramway which takes passengers 2,000 feet high up over the port which gives a magnificent view of the area.
Ketchikan is another of the port stops for the Disney Wonder. One of the things that you really notice on an Alaskan cruise is just how very small each city that you visit really is. This is the 5th largest city in Alaska but it has a population of under 8,000 people and is just 12 blocks long. The city has an interesting mix of tourist shops where you can spend a couple of hours browsing for local products. Ketchikan is also know for it’s totem poles and boasts the largest collection of 19th century examples of this craft in the world. A very popular excursion is to the Misty Fjords National Monument. This amazing National Monument covers 2.2 million acres and is an area of spectacular beauty which was carved out by glaciers 10,000 years ago.
An Alaskan cruise is an increasingly popular travel choice for guests and what better way to experience this than on the Disney Wonder. Disney is undoubtedly one of the very best cruise lines in offering well designed staterooms, exceptional service, activities for all the family, the best kids clubs at sea, and of course that exceptional Disney onboard entertainment.
The staterooms are up to 25% larger than the industry standard and are really well designed for the maximum comfort of guests. Unique to Disney Cruise line is Rotational Dining. The dining experience is always an important part of any cruise experience and Disney takes this to a new level. The Disney Wonder has 3 main dining rooms and you move around them each night of your cruise – but you take your wait staff with you. The Disney wait staff really are the very best at sea and they will make sure that your dining experience is the best.
And of course you really can’t experience the Disney magic anywhere else at sea. There are plenty of opportunities to meet the characters, watch a Disney movie, or enjoy the Broadway quality entertainment each day.
If you have always wanted to experience the wonder of this amazing place then consider taking a Disney Cruise to Alaska in 2013.
