    What are the options for exiting the ship at the end of the cruise? Can the queen bed in the veranda cabin be split for 2 people on Disney Wonder?

    Welcome aboard, Jean!

    Looks like you have your heart set on a cruise on the Disney Wonder. Bravo! I absolutely adore the Disney Wonder and all the amazing ports it takes Guests to for exploring. I’ve been able to visit Alaska and Mexico while on this glorious ship, and it lived up to its name as a WONDERful experience. 

    The queen beds onboard Disney Cruise Line are some of the most comfortable I’ve ever slept on. In fact, so much so that we get asked every year about which mattresses are used! (Hint: the answer can be found here). After a full day of activities, entertainment, and Port Adventures, I always find that I sleep wonderfully while cruising!

    Staterooms feature a queen mattress that is very spacious for two Guests, but unfortunately, it is not a split mattress that can be separated out in case you have two Guests that would rather have their own space. Hey, this reminds me of my kids on a road trip saying that their sibling was touching them and on their side!

    Most staterooms have additional sleeping space in the form of either a convertible sleeper sofa and/or an upper berth that can be flipped down to create in essence bunk beds. And there’s a privacy curtain that can be used to separate the queen bed space. So even though the queen bed cannot be split in two, there should be other more than adequate sleeping options (depending on your party size). You can find all the specifics about the Disney Wonder staterooms to be absolutely sure before you board. 

    When the “tragical” moment arrives to depart the ship, Guests are expected to be out of their staterooms by 8:00 a.m. and off the ship by 9:00 a.m. But not before one more delicious meal! They may choose to have breakfast before disembarking, and the times are set based upon their seating for rotational dining. Main Seating Guests will be expected to eat breakfast around 6:45 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. Guests assigned the Second Seating for dinner will be given a breakfast time, typically 8:00-8:15 a.m. The exact time will be listed on your disembarkation paperwork in your stateroom on the last night of your cruise. 

    Once you are off the ship, you'll have to claim luggage at the port (if you left it outside your stateroom the night before) and get through Customs. Typically, we are through customs and on our way around 9:30-10:00 a.m. 

    Alternatively, for those who need to be early birds and get off the ship early due to travel arrangements, they can forego breakfast and do what is called “Express Walk Off” (usually around 7:30 a.m.). It's the earliest time to leave the ship, but Guests are responsible for carrying off all their luggage. 

    My suggestion: if time allows, go enjoy that final meal on the ship and savor that “See Ya Real Soon” sendoff. It’s the best time to thank your rotational dining team. On our last morning, we love getting to say goodbye to our servers, who feel like family after all the time we’ve spent together! 

    Wishing you a magical adventure at sea, Jean! Cruise back to planDisney if we can assist you in any way. 

    Happy Sailing!
