Any other tips, things you wish you would have known before going? We don't have our room assigments yet--
The only thing I would have some differently was my port pick up car I had scheduled a little late. You do get off the boat on the last day quite early, we were off the ship at 8:00am. Thankfully our driver knew this would be the case and did not charge us for the earlier pick up. One note about hiring a car, if you have a little one still in a booster you will have to bring your own, it is safer but is also California law. Was not a big deal bringing on the boat. Other advice, there is tons of space under the bed for all of your luggage after you unpack. Be sure to go to Palo it was great!

Just to confirm, the Animator's Palate color change tech still works right? Someone mentioned this on here and it kinda freaked me out. Apparently, that was debunked as of October, but you're the most recent person I've seen reporting on the Wonder and I'm not sure when that first person sailed on the Wonder when it was supposedly broken.

I was on the Halloween Wonder cruise, and the AP show was working great.

Whew! Thanks so much! I know it's not as fancy a show as the newer ships, but it's still a highlight IMO and one I desperately want my kids and wife to see.

Quick question....What cruise day is the Animators Palate on?

Ship passengers rotate between three main dining rooms. One third of the passengers eat in each dining room at a time. Actually, there's main seating and late seating, so one sixth of the passengers are scheduled for each dining room at a time.

So you get Animator's Palate twice, and the show will be the second time you eat there. You'll get your exact schedule when you board -- it will be printed like a weird code on your Key to the World card.

On a 7-day cruise you'll be assigned to one of the main dining rooms three times. That's where you'll have pirate's night dinner, so it doesn't affect the light show in AP or give anyone an advantage or disadvantage over any other rotation.

Your rotation schedule determines when you'll have a character breakfast.

I hope this isn't as clear as mud.

It depends on your specific dining rotation.

Depending on which rotation you get it will be either Sunday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. Those are the nights that Show dinner is in AP.

I prefer the general atmosphere the best in AP so I requested it for 3 nights. The tropical one felt a bit too tacky and overwhelming and the other one was too boring. The others on the newer ships are gorgeous though. Still would request AP but would consider the fancier, royal themed one also.
