    Hi. We are booked on the Disney Wonder for an Alaskan cruise in May 2022. Are the pools available while the Wonder is cruising Alaska and are any of the pools (specifically for kids) heated. Thanks. Chace

    Ahoy Chace!

    Sailing to Alaska? That’s WONDERful news! My family and I couldn't wait to set foot onboard the Disney Wonder for our Alaskan itinerary. So far, this voyage has been our absolute favorite when I polled my family about the various destinations we’ve sailed to. Then again, it’s hard to compete with the nature and scenery in Alaska with whales, bald eagles, and glaciers!

    There’s just something about being able to swim while on a cruise, am I right? Good news! Even on the Alaskan cruises, swimming is definitely an option. Here’s why: the pools are heated when the outside temperature drops below 75. Brilliant idea! On our Alaska sailing, the temperature actually reached 82 degrees in the beginning of June, so a dip in Goofy’s Pool was very welcome! And for the adults, the Quiet Cove Pool offers a respite from the hustle and bustle of family-friendly areas and would be heated as well. 

    On the Disney Wonder, the AquaLab containing the Twist ‘n’ Spout waterslide will also be open for those wanting to make a splash while surrounded by snow-capped mountains and glaciers. But be forewarned: that water will not be heated. I’ve found that kids don’t seem to mind the chilly water quite as much as us grown-ups. They will stay in even when their lips are turning blue!

    Just keep swimming back to planDisney if you have other questions about Alaska or Disney cruising. We are always game to chat about those topics!

    Happy Sailing!
