From the top of its mouse-ears-adorned funnel to its red-dipped ship base, the Disney Wonder cruise ship drips with Disney magic inside and out, while maintaining its reputation as a high-class luxury vessel.

First launched in Venice, Italy in 1999 (where the ship was built), the second oldest ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet is known for its perfect balance of classic sleek and modern chic interior, boasting Italian-inspired decor that reflects the history of the venetian vessel in a classy yet stylish way.

After cruising regularly between Port Canaveral, Florida and The Bahamas for several years, the classic ship added Vancouver to its roster of departure cities in 2011, and became the only Disney cruise ship to call Vancouver home. The ship can be seen tucked up against Canada Place during the Spring and Summer months, offering regular sailings between Vancouver and Alaska from its downtown port.

For those of you who have only dreamed of boarding the dashing Disney vessel, here’s a peek inside the 11-deck ship.
