    Hi, cruising on the Wonder for a 7night Western Caribbean, cruised in the Dream before. Wondering if in San Juan and Philipsburg does the ship dock right in port like in Nassau, were everything is really close? Also any suggested port adventures for both?

    Ahoy, Amy!

    A 7-night adventure on the beautiful Disney Wonder - how exciting! I know you must be counting the days until you set sail on Disney Cruise Line's recently re-imagined ship. With new enhancements to dining venues, decor, and entertainment, the Disney Wonder is an amazing choice for your Disney Cruise Line vacation!

    You'll be happy to know that the ship will dock very close to shopping and dining venues in both San Juan and Philipsburg. In Philipsburg, you'll dock on the Dutch island side, with downtown Philipsburg, and plentiful duty-free shopping, only a short walk or taxi ride away (approximately one mile or less). In San Juan, the dock is located in Old San Juan, and is a short walking distance from the main city area.

    Without knowing the dynamics of your sailing party and your preferred activity level, it would be difficult for me to suggest Port Adventures for these two ports. That being said, both locations have an amazing variety of Port Adventures available for all activity levels and ages.

    San Juan is home to several Rainforest adventures, beach days, bicycle tours, scuba, surfing - even cooking! Philipsburg features Port Adventures such as the Sailing Ship Mercedes - a Tall Ship Experience, a Rum and Reggae Cruise, and much more. I encourage you to use the Port Adventure search engine, where you can search by Experience Type, Activity Level, Accessibility and Price Level. I'm certain you'll find the perfect adventure for your sailing party!

    I hope this helps with your planning - please let us know if you have any more questions before you set sail! - Diane W.
