Wondering about the Wonder? Check out a photo tour of an Oceanview Stateroom on the Disney Wonder. Read on for more information and detailed photos.
Outside the Room
The main bed is a very comfortable queen sized bed. Unlike many other cruise lines-- these beds are not made up of 2 singles that lock together, so you don't get the mattress split down the middle of your bed. However, it does limit the bed combinations for your travelling party. The beds are high enough that your suitcases should easily fit underneath. We had no problem fitting 3 larger suitcases and one carry on under the bed. This is a HUGE space saver. Both sides of the bed have their own bedside lamp attached to the wall and a small shelf with a drawer. One side has a stateroom phone on it.
The main bed is separated from the sitting area/bunk beds with a curtain. This is a nice touch. It gives a bit of separation and privacy between the kids and parent area or can block some light if you are staying up while the kids sleep.
In the sitting area the couch makes into a lower bunk and a top bunk lowers down from the ceiling if needed. Your stateroom host will do this for you while you are at dinner and set everything up for the evening. In the morning they will tuck it all away ready for the day. If you would like them to keep it out as beds all day so the kids can nap, just speak with your host. They are very helpful and accommodating.
The Sitting Area - Daytime
Curtains over the port hole come in both sheers and black out curtains depending on the level of privacy and light proofing you want. The coffee table raises and lowers so you can adjust the height as needed. The desk area across from the couch has a small padded stool that can tuck under the desk when not in use for more floor space. There are shallow drawers to either side of the desk and a drawer with stationary in the middle. This is also where you will most likely find the hairdryer that is provided with the stateroom.
The Closet and other storage
.The closet has one side that allows for longer hanging items and one side that will only hang shorter items as the bottom half has the safe and a lower shelf (we used it for shoes). The top shelf is where life jackets for your stateroom are stored. Hopefully you will never need to use these as you are not required to wear them for the muster drill. Hangers are provided--if you need more talk to your Stateroom Host as extras are in short supply and certainly not guaranteed.
There are a few other shelving units including a cupboard above the TV, a cupboard and two drawers at the foot of the bed and a lower cupboard that has 4 drinking glasses and a bottle opener on a tray on the top. There is also a small bar style refrigerator in the cabinet under the TV.
The bathrooms -- The shower room
The shower room includes a bathtub/shower and a sink. This is a very small tub as you would expect in such a small room but perfectly adequate for what you need. It is nice that there is a tub for those who are travelling with smaller children who need a bath rather than a shower. The split bathroom layout also allows for a little more flexibility when getting ready in the morning or heading to bed at night as there are two sinks available. The small glass shelf above the sink comes stocked with complementary shampoo, conditioner and body lotion from H2O. It is large enough to hold a few toiletries or tooth brushes. There is a tissue dispenser built into the sink.
The Bathrooms -- The toilet room
The toilet room includes a toilet and sink. There is a set of small storage shelves to the right of the toilet that are suitable for a small toiletry case or storing bottles of sunscreen etc. The small glass shelf above the sink can also hold a few toiletries or toothbrushes.
Note: There is a small step up into both of the bathrooms.
The TV is on an extendable arm that allows you to angle the TV to where you want to watch it from, ie. the couch or the bed. There is a range of Disney shows and movies available to watch. You can also watch a bridge view channel and an information channel that shows you where the ship is on a map.
A closer look at the plugs on the desk shows the plug for the hairdryer ( the big round middle plug) and two regular plugs. The top plugs are a set of 4 usb plugs which are great for charging the multiple electronic devices we seem to pack with us. This was a fantastic feature that I wish more hotels had rather than having to scramble to find plugs to charge everything. There is also a plug on the shelf beside the bed (behind the phone).
There is a subtle Mickey themeing to the room. Look for hidden Mickey's in your room and throughout the ship.
