Thank you for sharing! I'll be on the Wonder 3/30 after having taken two Dream cruises - your comparisons and those fabulous pictures have helped a great deal.

I must say that the sit down breakfast is the only way to go... Actually I hate buffets, and tend to do the sit down options for every meal. I am just much happier that way.

I think I like the formality of it.

Just a minor note: That charming cruise director is Ray. Capt. Fabian was our captain.
I was going to say, I thought that look like Ray. he was our cruise director on the Dream in March 2011.

Great update. Photos, and comparisons. I like the honest perspectives too especially about the food.

Also never gave any thought to the bonus of being able to sleep with an inside state room. I'm a very very light sleeper. That's something to consider.

I used Nassau and Castaway Cay days as the times to play Disney movie catch-up and saw Frankenweenie, Brave, and Wreck-It Ralph.

I think we just must have sailed in different circuits as I did keep running into the same guests as well. At least I can say that I wasn't one of the DVC Member Celebration villagers that apparently tried to torch you.
I can't imagine staying onboard on CC day, I'm absolutely in love with that place! I did miss a sea day. I have 3 of them on the upcoming cruise and I'm really looking forward to them. I wanted to take mom to Wreck-It Ralph but it didn't work out time wise. That movie is so cute!

That must have been it. The thought didn't even cross my mind

I think I still like the verandah, Fran likes having natural light come into our room, but that does give me something to think about for sleeping really well.
I had been planning for months to go find key lime pie at a few places but it was just so nice on the ship I didn't want to leave!

I'm glad I experienced the inside stateroom so I now know I have no problem with it. Last year I said I'd never do anything but a verandah since it was so nice. Now I'll just do whatever works for the pocketbook at the time of booking.

We didn't do a sit-down breakfast last time, so will definitely do that.
Oh yes, you must do a sit down breakfast at least once. It's a fabulous way to start the day. We went to Tritons 3/4 breakfasts.

Great updates, Pam!

I'm hoping to catch up on a few movies on the Fantasy when we sail in a few weeks. Oz will be just released, and I'd like to see both Lincoln and Wreck It Ralph. Funny how these schedules just get so filled up -- can't forget to relax, either!!

The only reason we missed one breakfast was because there was a clock malfunction during the night and the restaurant was closed. Besides that we would have done sit down every breakfast. I love being waited on, especially on vacation. Biggest problem is they always pause and act a little odd when I want a diet coke for breakfast instead of coffee or juice.

I guess I really liked the name Fabian, Ray didn't stick with me at all

It was cool to see him in person, he was on the little videos they posted when the Fantasy was being brought over. In my mind I thought, 'I know you!' on the first night when he introduced himself. Apparently not enough though since I completely forgot his name
