In-room movies aboard the Wonder

I had a quick question with regards to in-room movies on the Wonder. I had heard the newer ships use an on-demand type service that you can access from your stateroom tv. Does the Wonder have something similar our just a channel that plays movies throughout the day that can't be paused, fast forwarded, etc.?

The last time we were on her there were something like 6 or 8 channels that showed movies. One channel would start on the hour, another on the 1/2 hour. Each channel had about 4 or 5 different movies that they would play 24 hours, one right after the other. There was one channel that played Disney classic cartoons, another with Disney family movies. One channel had more recent releases (not just Disney), not first run, but recent.

No fast-forwarding, rewind or pause.

If there was a schedule, we never found it! However, I did get to see Bambi on the Wonder in May!

They did only have about 8-10 movies. They each have a set schedule that they run on 24 hours as previoulsy stated. We actually were not pleased with the selection. We actually watch alot of the Disney Channel when on the Wonder and Magic. Can't beat the options on the Dream and Fantasy. I asked for a guide last time I was on (last year) and they said they do not provide them. Could have changed by now.

We never saw a schedule. We also asked. Good for you to have one.

When I was on the Wonder last year there wasn't a paper schedule that I was aware of, but you just scroll through the TV and you will see it. Very basic compared to the newer ships and on demand movies.
