In October of 2017, my family and I went on a 4-night cruise from San Diego, CA to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico aboard the Disney Wonder. The cruise was themed Halloween on the High Seas. The whole ship was decked out in Halloween! The doors of every cabin are magnetic and passengers decorate their doors with magnets. I ordered these ones off of Etsy. It is a great identifier if you get lost walking down the hall!
There are many stateroom categories on Disney Cruise Line ships, and the specifics of each vary based on location, size, and view. Most have split baths and curtains to divide the room, and sleep between 3 and 5 guests. Here is my review of the cabin we stayed in!
The Specifics of the Stateroom
We stayed in Disney Wonder stateroom 6070. It is located on deck 6, mid ship on the starboard side (right). It is a category 5B – Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with a Verandah. It can house 3 – 4 guests with 1 queen bed, single sleeper sofa, and upper berth pull-down bed. Total square feet is 268, including the verandah.
The stateroom was bigger than I expected! For a family of 4, this is the perfect size. It is also very nice having a verandah; the room feels like it goes on forever! When you walk in there are closets to your right and the split bathroom to your left. When you continue farther into the room there is a tv, couch, desk with a mirror, table and small stool that fit under the desk. Then the verandah calls your name. I don’t even think I looked around the room before I headed straight outside! The verandah has two chairs and a table. Perfect size to take in the sunrise.
Disney guests expect a level of excellence, and on the Disney Wonder, they do not disappoint! The stateroom feels like a hotel room – the cabinetry is solid and good quality, as well as the linens and curtains, were plush and excellent quality.
The Main Section of the Stateroom
There are actually 2 main sections in the stateroom, separated by a curtain. The first one has the queen bed, two side tables, and two cabinets for clothes or other supplies that you brought with you on-board. The second part contains another cabinet (the hair dryer was in here) the tv (you can move it so you can see it from the queen bed section of the cabin), desk with mirror, table, couch and pull-down Murphy bed. The pull-down bed is not set up during the day. Your room steward sets it up and makes the bed each night as well as puts up the ladder, and he so kindly put all of my daughter’s stuffed animals and blankets up on her bed each night. The in the mornings he would take it down and arrange my son’s and my daughter’s stuffed animals on the couch.
There are actually 2 bathrooms. They are called a split bathroom because in the first one there is a sink, mirror, toilet, and cabinet. In the other, there is a shower and another sink and mirror. It was fantastic because we could have multiple people getting ready at the same time.
The shower was a little small for my husband. He is 6′ 2″ and you have to step up and into the shower. He could have used a few more inches.
Included in the bathroom are shampoo, conditioner, soap, and lotion. It is Disney’s good stuff! These products are the ones available in their spa collection. My daughter loved the smell of the shampoo and conditioner so much we bought her a set online when we got home!
One last thing about the bathrooms on the Disney Wonder: their towels! The quality is great and for the majority of your cruise, they have Mickey heads on them. I remember thinking: wow, Disney thinks of everything and puts such great touches into their customer’s experience! Then I noticed on the day before we disembarked the ship, the towels changed! No more Mickey heads! Still great quality towels, but now they were plain. It must be because they have had people take the Mickey head towels home in the past and they got wise to it. They think of everything!
Inside the closet are the safe, shelving, hangers, life vests, and plenty of room to put stuff. What was very nice is that we actually were able to unpack on this cruise. There was plenty of space in the cabinets and closets for our clothing and the suitcases slid right under our bed so they were tucked out of the way. The hangers in the closet were especially helpful if you brought nicer clothes for brunch or dinner Palo or just in general. We also brought a pop-up laundry basket where we put all of our dirty clothes throughout the cruise and it fit perfectly in the closet.
My Favorite Thing(s)
There are two! I couldn’t pick just one: the towel art and the blanket on the bed! The first picture is of our hanging monkey! That was my kids favorite. The second picture combines both of my favorite things about this cabin, the towel art, and the blanket.
I love how they used my husband’s sunglasses! My kids especially loved the chocolates each night. I wanted to take home the blanket on the bed. It was a throw blanket and I took it outside each morning on the verandah to enjoy the view of the ocean or of Cabo San Lucas. It was the perfect weight blanket. I loved it so much I bought one from the gift shop on the cruise ship! It wasn’t the same, but it came close!
Location, Location, Location
The Disney Wonder as 10 decks, and we were on deck 6. Our stateroom was mid-ship as far as front to back and top to bottom. We were also close to the elevators, but not too close where we could hear people gathering. Also, the kids club was on the deck below us (deck 5) and we couldn’t hear anything! I actually loved being that close to the kids club because I felt comfortable with my son going back and forth from our stateroom to the kids club without us.
If you are prone to seasickness this is a good location because you are mid-ship, and you have a verandah. This was my kids first cruise, so we were unsure if they would get seasick. My family was just fine. Me on the other hand, I get seasick regardless of where I am on the ship. Good for me they give out medication at the main desk 🙂
Would I Stay in Stateroom 6070 Again?
Absolutely! To be honest, I don’t know if there would be a better stateroom room for us!
