Default Wonder vs. Magic and April vs. Feb.

Hi all,

My family (daughter age 7, son age 13) sailed on the Wonder last February for our first cruise ever! It was so much better than we expected.

We are scheduled to sail again the first of April on the Magic. I'm hoping it will be as wonderful. Is the service, food, and entertainment as good on the Magic as it is on the Wonder?

Also, in Feb. the ship seemed to not be crowded at all. My son had full reign of the basketball court most of the time. I am wondering if it was because of the time of year, or because Disney is just that organized?

Any ideas? Thanks!

I am sure both ships are equally good in food and entertainment. As far as how crowded the ship was, a lot of it has to do with time of year. Disney does cater to families, and if you cruise when kids are inschool then you have fewer people on board.

Chances are that in April you may have more kids on Spring break, so it should be more crowded, but not as crowded as the summer and holidays.

Please let us know how you liked it!

Both ships are AWESOME!!!

on a 7 day you will of course have more to choose from and as well as the shows you will have a couple nights with a magician or a juggler or a comedian too. One different show on the Magic will be Twice Charmed so you will have a new show to see.

Since you will go through each restraurant twice take one of the 2nd round nights and try the buffet for dinner. It is actually a sit down restaurant in the evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 all but the first and last night of the cruise. It is much quieter and relaxed atmosphere. casual dress every night. this is where they train the waiters so they are trying extra hard to please you. Be sure and bring a few dollars tip for them to leave on your table.

April will have more kids due to spring break.
I agree with the above poster about kids in and out of school does make a difference.
Once you do the 7 day you wont ever want to go back to the shorter crusies!!


20 DCL cruises and counting!
1 Carnival Glory cruise

Waiitng for the new ships to arrive for more magical cruises!!

So having read the replies, I am extremely pleased that my travel agent suggested late January/early February for our cruise.

Yay! going on our first Disney cruise
