On board the Disney Wonder

It all started back in the beginning of December. Steve said 2009 would be a busy year for him...3 trips to Kuwait, survival training up at Fairchild and a 2 month trip to Egypt. Steve said he would like to plan a fun vacation around all his trips, so we did. The kids had been to Disney, last year we went to the beaches in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and a few others so we decided this year we wanted to head north. We both wanted to go to the Big Apple but thought that would be better to do in warmer weather so Steve came up with the idea of a Disney Cruise. I am so glad he did...it was PERFECT...A DREAM!

We were driving in the car and came over a bridge heading into Cape Canaveral and then all of a sudden we all squealed at the first sight of the ship. It's HUGE!



That is the Atrium on Deck 3 behind Ben and Madi. This is where you come on board. The crew group families together and when you enter this gorgeous area on the ship they announce "The Disney Wonder welcomes the Harmon Family aboard"...which makes you feel so cool and it looks like something from the movie The Titanic.

Here is deck 4...my favorite. It was a quiet place. It was 1/3 mile around the ship and this was the deck that was made for walking and running around. Steve and I came here a few times and at night we enjoyed sitting in those blue chairs.

One evening while the kids where having fun at the Oceaneer Lab, Steve and I went to the gym. Here is my treadmill...look at my view.

About 30 minutes before pulling out of Port Canaveral The Sail Away party started. Where all those people are standing is a pool but they cover it so people can stand there for all the big parties. All the fun Disney characters came to the party too. We just loved all the music and energy....everyone was so excited to start on our voyage.

Out of the three pools on deck 9 this one...Mickey's pool with the slide was their favorite. There is Madi jumping in. They love playing in the water.




There is Madi...she just slid down Mickey's slide.


The ship had the prettiest and cleanest bathrooms.

Our family spent a lot of time up on deck 10...that is where the basketball court was.

Madi looking out watching as we pulled out of Port Canaveral.

There are two theaters on the ship...the Buena Vista Movie Theatre and the Walt Disney Theatre which is used for the broadway style shows. Every night after dinner we saw a different broadway show...here is a picture of Toy Story The Musical...the kids and Steve's favorite one. They were outstanding performances!
I am so lucky to have married such a wonderful guy. I can't imagine the pride Steve feels having such a wonderful family and not only being able to provide us with all of our necessities, but a beautiful house and even taking his kids on such an extravagant fun vacation. I guess I should tell him thank you.

Los Angeles officials has signed off last Thursday, March 30, 2009, for the plans of bringing the Disney Wonder Cruise Ship, beginning January 1, 2011, to San Pedro. The ship, running on low-sulfur fuel, will use the port's existing cruise terminal and berths.
