Disney Wonder Heading to Australia Following Drydock

Disney Wonder

The Disney Wonder recently started its repositioning voyage to Australia and New Zealand. Resuming service following a two-week drydock, the Disney Cruise Line ship welcomed guests for the first part of its transpacific voyage on Oct. 3.

Sailing from Vancouver to Canada, the ten-night cruise included visits to Honolulu, Hilo, Nawiliwili and Kahului.

The Disney Wonder then sailed from Honolulu on Oct. 13, starting the second part of its repositioning voyage to Australia.

Sailing all the way to Sydney, the 13-night cruise features visits to different destinations in the South Pacific, including Fiji, New Caledonia and American Samoa.

Starting on Oct. 28, the Disney Wonder is set to sail a series of short cruises in Australia and New Zealand.

Initially, the ship offers two- to four-night itineraries departing from Sydney and Melbourne. In addition to days at sea, the cruises feature visits to Hobart, in Tasmania.

In late November, the Disney Wonder is set to reposition to New Zealand for a series of short cruises to nowhere departing from Auckland.

The ship then offers additional departures from Sydney, in addition to cruises from Brisbane, between December and February.

Before returning to North America in February, the Wonder also offers extra sailings from Melbourne in January and February.

In October 2024, the vessel is scheduled to return to Australia and New Zealand for a second winter season in the region.

After completing its summer program in Alaska in late September, the Disney Wonder sailed to Victoria, in Canada, for a 14-night drydock.

During the shipyard stay, the 1999-built vessel underwent regular maintenance, in addition to class work and technical overhauls.

On the hotel side, public areas and cabins also went through routine upkeep, in addition to occasional updates.

A sister to the 1998-built Disney Magic, the Disney Wonder originally entered service as Disney Cruise Line’s second cruise ship.
