Another video for everyone - I was lucky enough to be back in Vancouver again this weekend so I went to Stanley Park to watch the Wonder leave Vancouver.

Hi Everyone.

Well I haven't posted anything in months but I've had nearly at week at home so I can finally start to finish sorting all my photos and videos out!

I've also started writing about the cruise on my blog so here's day one....

Disney Wonder to Alaska - Day One in Vancouver

There's also a few more videos on YouTube as well.

Enjoy.

I am thoroughly enjoying your pictures and your blog and am anxiously awaiting more.

If you took any pictures inside Cove Cafe, I would love to see them. I have not been on the Wonder since they enclosed that area for the Alaska sailings.

Just another little update - I've added more video links and a few more menus to the first post.

Sorry I didn't take any photos inside Cove Cafe but I have plenty from outside it

Thank you for all the great parts of your TR, I am hooked.

Looking over your embarkation day, it looks like you boarded on deck 4, not deck 3 (you entered above the atrium, not on the same level as Tritons).

They still announce you , right?

No we definitely boarded on Deck 3 - straight into the atrium in front of Tritons.

I think I see how you thought that but there are two boarding ramps at Canada Place - one for passengers and one for crew - I took a picture just before we boarded looking along the ship which shows the other ramp. The crew board onto Deck 4 and the passengers onto Deck 3.

And yes, they still announce your arrival.

Ah, got it. Thanks for posting all the cruise terminal photos, that is the part I am most curious about. Do you have a TR about debark day coming?

I love the part about the lady in customs bad mouthing DCL.

You are a nicer person than I am, if some old lady was bad mouthing DCL, I might have to come back with "Ahhh, Norweigan Cruise Line, newlywed and nearly dead, I wonder if they have a mortuary on board". I know, not very Disney like

You have me convinced to not even bother with Deck 10 on Tracy Arm Day, I am going to find a nice place on Deck 4 to watch the scenery.

Looking forward to the rest of your report!

What a great trip report! You have included so many helpful tips, and as this is my first cruise ever this summer, it has been most helpful! Thanks, too, for posting all of the Navigators. I learned a lot by looking at those, too. Glad you have fabulous memories of the trip and am thankful you took the time to share with us!

Thank you both for your kind words.

As this was my first cruise too, I am trying to include as much information as I can remember. But the one thing I would stress is to "not stress" about it. Once onboard everything was so easy. I tried to include as much as I could about Canada Place as you never really get to see many photos of it at all.

I am slowly getting through the rest of the days - I had hoped to get it done by Christmas but clearly that didn't happen. I will update here though each time I post something.
