What dates is the Wonder dry docked? I see that October 15th 3-day doesn't come up when searching for a sailing and it's not listed here for the cruise meets so I thought maybe that was when?

If MouseSavers is correct I think I answered my own question:

2009 Drydock Plans
The Wonder will be in drydock September 27-October 15, 2009

Actually, that has been changed. There is a 4 day cruise on 9/27/09. The new dates for each ship's next drydock are listed in the FAQ thread.

Next Dry Dock for the Wonder - October 2 - 17, 2009
Next Dry Dock for the Magic - October 3 - 15, 2010

Thanks Lisa! I was going to correct my post as well. Just got off the phone with DCL. They said the Wonder's dry docked from Oct 1 - Oct. 17th. The first cruise after the dry dock is Oct. 18th.

Personally, I wouldn't knowingly book it. This thread should cover just about everything that could happen.

We were lucky enough to be on the Magic in October 2008, when it just came out of dry dock. It was like a new ship...new carpet, new TV's, etc. Looks like the same will happen for us again, in October 2010!!!!!

Have any of the Disney ships not sail after being dry docked?


We are planning on the 3 day Oct. 18th cruise date, too. It the best date that suits us. I would hat to have plane tickets and everything else set and this sail falls through.

No, the ships have not missed a cruise due to a drydock not being completed. :)

Can you please explain to me why I wouldn't want to sail right after dry dock? Seems like exerything would be new and fresh

Did you read the thread that I posted? Work is never completed after dry dock and in that case there are pictures of the pools that could not be used by guests for almost 3 days on the first cruise.

I'm very interested in reading this thread as I am considering the second cruise after dry dock, but when I try to click on the link this message comes up:

We r cruising on the Sept 27th 4 night. Is there anything that happens prior to dry dock or does ship run everything as planned?

Concerned....:guilty:

On the last cruise before dry dock, you might find on the last evening/morning that work has already begun. The crew will work right that last evening/morning in areas that less used by guests at that time and will work the entire sail up to the dry dock facility, pulling up old materials and storing away items that will be kept, but need to be out of the way.
