Smoking Policy Updated Onboard Disney Cruise Line Ships

Disney Cruise Line has updated their smoking policy aboard all 4 of their ships.  Based on Guest Feedback, guests will no longer be permitted to smoke on stateroom verandahs onboard Disney Cruise Line ships.

Smoking Policy Updated Onboard Disney Cruise Line Ships

Disney states,” it is recognized that some Guests smoke. To provide an onboard atmosphere that also satisfies smokers, portions of open-air decks on each ship are designated as smoking areas. Smoking is not allowed on stateroom verandahs. Guests who are found smoking in their staterooms or on their verandahs will be charged a $250 stateroom recovery fee. This fee covers a deep cleaning to include air filter replacement, carpet extraction, the cleaning and replacement of drapes, comforters, blankets, and pillows, along with verandah cleaning and maintenance.”

Vintage Walt Disney World: The Disney Wonder Debuts

Today back in 1999, the Disney Wonder arrived at Port Canaveral for the first time after leaving Italy. Below is a shot of the ship pulling into port behind its sister ship the Disney Magic.

As the second ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet, the Disney Wonder has many unique features that distinguish it from the other ships, including the Ariel statue in the atrium, Triton’s restaurant, Route 66, and Donald and Huey on the ship’s stern.

This year, the Disney Wonder voyaged to Hawaii for the first time, made its first call to Seattle and soon will depart for cruises to the Caribbean from Miami in December. That’s a lot of firsts for this classic Disney Cruise Line ship!
