You're going to absolutely love it. Be sure to get to the terminal WAY early, to be on the first few boarding groups. Most families run to the family pool right away with their carry on, to enjoy the pool. Take advantage of the time with no one aboard, to take pics, roam the boat, etc. Sign up for various wine/alcohol tastings if that's your thing. We loved the Champagne, Martini, Wine and Tequila tastings. Book a brunch or dinner at Palo for only $25 per person. It's worth it and more. The wonder was just refurbished, so the ship should be like new. We can't wait to sail her for the first time, which isn't until Feb 2018 to the Western Caribbean. We've sailed 5 times, on the Dream and Fantasy.
