We have been hearing some chatter over the last week or so about the staterooms aboard the Disney Wonder. Some guests have noticed blocks of rooms being worked on while others being reassigned staterooms for upcoming sailings. We reached out to Disney Cruise Line earlier this week to determine if these reports were true and to learn more about the overall scope of the project.
A representative from DCL was kind enough to share that the staterooms aboard the Disney Wonder are indeed receiving a refresh. The project started around the first of the year and will continue through April. Specific details of the project were sparse, but we did learn that the staterooms are receiving updated furnishings and soft goods. The most important detail of the project will be the installation of the elevated queen beds introduced on the Disney Dream and recently installed aboard the Disney Magic during her last dry dock. This means that the beds will no longer split into two twin beds which have been the norm since the launch of the Disney Wonder in 1999.
Before anyone goes calling their travel agent or Disney Cruise Line to request a refreshed stateroom consider the fact that it is very unlikely that an updated list is available of the completed staterooms.
Based on the stateroom refresh of the Disney Magic in October 2013, it is quite plausible that the rooms on the Disney Wonder will look similar.
If you happen to be assigned a refreshed stateroom aboard the Disney Wonder, we’d love to hear about your experience in the comments below or a in a stateroom review.
