On this cruise Hannah and I were once again in an inside stateroom. This time I chose what is called a ‘sideways’ stateroom and compared to last time it felt HUGE! (LOL – anyone who has cruised knows that staterooms are far from ‘huge’.) But, compared to last time it really had a lot more room to move around!
There was also a lot of storage in the form of dresser drawers, an upright steamer trunk, lots of hangers in the closet and shelves in the closet too.
It ends up we were the final people to stay in our stateroom before it was refurbished. The Wonder is 12 years old and will be dry docked for a major refurbishment after the new portion of the Panama Canal is open but until then they are doing small things to update the ship as they can. After our cruise our stateroom received a new, higher bedframe that allowed luggage to be stored under it. A queen mattress (ours was 2 singles pushed together that could have been separated), new carpeting and more.
We loved our stateroom and it met all of our needs and we would book it again in a heartbeat except….
Grandma and Grandpa, Nana and Papa each had veranda rooms and well…we fell in love!
We rebooked another cruise while onboard and are planning to go back on the Fantasy in early 2017. I’m already tucking pennies away in hopes of securing a veranda room for us! We are fresh air kinda girls and I can only imagine how amazing it would be to look out and see the ocean around us and also hear the waves below as we sleep. Yes, we have a goal!!
