    We are planning our 2nd cruise - thinking of the SD to Vancouver cruise in May, but have a few questions. What is the weather like at that time of year? Also, how far out to sea is the ship? Will you be able to see/enjoy the coastline? Thanks

    Ahoy, Andrew!

    It is "WONDER"ful to hEAR from you again! How exciting that you are planning another magical voyage aboard Disney Cruise Line, and the timing could not be better since the Disney Wonder was just recently re-imagined! The sailing you are considering also interests me because I love all three cities on this itinerary! And to answer one of your questions, the ship will cruise right up the California Coast, so a verandah stateroom on the starboard side of the ship will offer you some spectacular views. I have two favorite spots on the Disney Wonder-unwinding under a blanket on one of the padded loungers on Deck 4 and sipping a hot cup of cocoa in Outlook Café soaking in the breathtaking floor-to-ceiling views from Deck 10. Doesn't that sound relaxing?

    The weather in May can still be cool with highs in the 60s and lows in the 50 to 60 range depending on the port. Layers are going to be the way to dress each day, and you'll definitely want to check the 10-day forecast before zipping up your suitcase to depart. 

    Another reason to set sail along the beautiful Pacific Coast is the fabulous variety of Port Adventures offered including touring Alcatraz and Sausalito or Monterey and Carmel in San Francisco or maybe you want to dive into the life of Walt Disney at the Walt Disney Family Museum. So many choices to consider! 

    Andrew, good luck with your plans for your next Disney Cruise vacation! We hope you'll keep us posted with any other questions you may have about your upcoming high seas adventure!
