Is it easy to find?
Any pictures?
And is it on the Wonder?

it is on both ships and is easy to find if you know about it. go aft on deck seven and look for the door.

08-19-2008, 03:06 PM
and what is there behind this 'door'?

08-19-2008, 03:20 PM
You go way, way back to the back door of Deck 7. Usually it's unlocked, but sometimes you can't go out. Anyway, when you go out, it's a deck and no one is ever there. I think there are even chairs/lounges out there and you just enjoy the peace and quiet. It's really cool. My kids found it one year and we visit every time we cruise!

is the door marked?

08-19-2008, 03:37 PM
Shhh! If you tell everyone it won't be secret anymore...:goodvibes

I was on the Wonder last week in one of the aft cabins on deck 7. Yes it is easy to find, yes it is marked and yes it must still be a secret because I went out there several times and I was alone each time! The sign says it is open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. don't know if that is enforced. On day one the loungers were out, on the other days they were stacked. It was really hot out there during the day with no shade to speak of and no water to cool off in. I was out there while we docked in Nassau and someone at BBB called down and asked if I was on the Walt Disney Suite ;) I was honest and said no ....

I took a pilates class on this deck while docked at Nassau. Beautiful! FYI - If you are outside eating at the buffet, go to the back edge and look down to see it. There were several diners watching us exercise.

Good thing ... had it been me and I WAS in the WD suite, I would have been pi$$ed off for people to be hollering down at me on my verandah!

I was just happy that they thought could afford it .....

When it is locked that means the kids club is there. My DD4's class (?) went to take a fresh air time every day around 4 to 5 and when they are there, it is usually locked, but I believe you can still go in and take a look.

For my DD, it was too hot (Mex cruise), so we tried to avoid the club during those hours.

My DH wondered around everyday, but he never found that secret spot until I told him that DD's class go there.

In her club, they walk down to deck 5 aft, take the secret steep stair case up to deck 7 and, voila! The stair case actually takes you up to Topsider.

It sure is a special spot.;)

Our DisMeet met there, but it was HOT! But we knew everyone who came out was a Diser!!!!

08-19-2008, 04:20 PM
we had our Vow Renewal on "Secret" Deck 7 aft on the Wonder
Picture of Door..(and me)

08-19-2008, 04:28 PM
COOL PICS!!! It's like a real deck. :thumbsup2 I was thinking a little balcony. :lmao:

That's very cool!

I've visited the secret deck several times. So what do you think? If you went over the railing would you: 1) Plop down on someone's veranda, or) Find out first hand how much water the Magic/Wonder can really push? :eek: ;)

08-19-2008, 04:32 PM
oh no..it is really big..I had 15 people out there plus the officers and musician..if you look at the link "Donahue VR" there are several pictures of the deck and all the Dis'rs that came..it was really breezy there as you can see my veil blowing

here is a picture I took on the Magic with the chairs out

08-19-2008, 04:33 PM
...and the other side of the door!

This one isn't as pretty without the red carpet though!

08-19-2008, 04:35 PM
Hey - the Magic has better chairs than the Wonder!!! Much nicer than these plastic things...

08-19-2008, 04:40 PM
those blue ones weren't out there in 06 when I cruised. Those chairs were only on Deck 4 ( i think) Not up by the pools or on the secret deck

08-19-2008, 04:43 PM
they weren't on the wonder when we looked at the deck before the VR..I think they had the plastic ones too

That railing just inside the door had the same bows on it for my VR..I wish I had gotten a picture..it was so pretty

08-19-2008, 05:19 PM

Beautiful pic... spoiled by that other ship in the background!

08-19-2008, 05:26 PM
we actually were there to watch the ship dock behind us..they got so close, I wish I had taken a picture once they docked!!

08-19-2008, 06:12 PM
Did they put a sign on the door not to disturb your VR? Or do they let it be so people can pop in and out?

08-19-2008, 06:29 PM
they put a sign up..plus and officer mans the door

The only thing I didn't like about this deck, is that when you use the loungers, you get NO view. You just lie there. It really is for total relaxation out there. But I couldn't do it for very long, I really do need something to look at, like the ocean or other people. It kind of drove me nuts. But, it sure is a beautiful sight at night, watching the moon. Very nice.:thumbsup2

08-20-2008, 04:32 AM
I didn't realise it was so big!!! And I can't believe no one else finds it - I will be hunting it out next time!!:lmao:

08-20-2008, 08:23 AM
We found it was a good spot to take our pre-teen DS when he needed some "down time" from his brother or the Lab or whatever - we'd get a plateful of fresh fruit and go sit out there - it was a good quiet place and a healthy snack and a time to just totally relax and have quiet.

...and the other side of the door!

Here's another shot of the same door........

And...the other door.....(says "Aft Overlook")

and yes....you cannot get out there past 7pm...the door was ALWAYS locked!

08-20-2008, 12:19 PM
If you go to the breakfast buffet in the morning, eat outside and look down over the rail. You'll see it. We never went on it....it just didn't look that interesting.

No...it's not very exciting....

I think this was taken from the BBB (not sure tho...if not, it was Deck 8), you can see secret aft deck 7.....

08-20-2008, 03:01 PM
maybe not exciting... but still cool.

Thanks everyone!
