SHIP'S INFORMATION

 

Disney Wonder is a cruise ship operated by Disney Cruise Line. The second ship to join the Disney fleet, it entered service in 1999. It is nearly identical in construction to its sister ship, Disney Magic. Both ships have 11 public decks, can accommodate 2,400 passengers in 875 staterooms, and have a crew of approximately 950. The Disney Wonder was built in the year following completion of the Disney Magic. As of 2012, the Wonder is based out of Los Angeles, CA.

History
Disney Wonder had its first voyage from the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy, stopping in Southampton, U.K., Ponta Delgada (Azores), arriving in Port Canaveral, Florida two weeks later.[citation needed] Its maiden voyage was a four-night Bahamian cruise that commenced on August 15, 1999.

Disney Wonder originally sailed three- and four-night cruises to The Bahamas. In 2011, the Disney Dream took over these itineraries and Wonder was repositioned to the Pacific Coast. Disney Wonder currently sails week-long Mexican Rivera cruises and Pacific Coast cruises out of Los Angeles from October to April, calling on such ports as Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas and Ensenada in Mexico, as well as San Fransciso and San Diego. On sailings in April and October 2012, the Disney Wonder will make its first-ever calls on Hawai'i, with stops at Hilo, Kahului and Honolulu.

From May to September, the ship sails Alaska cruises, out of Seattle, Washington, although its voyages in 2011 departed from Vancouver. These sailings normally call on Ketchikan, Skagway, and Juneau. The Seattle voyages scheduled in 2012 will make an additional stop at Victoria, British Columbia on the last night of each voyage to satisfy the Passenger Vessel Services Act of 1886.

Following a repositioning cruise in December 2012, the Disney Wonder will be based out of Miami, FL for about 5 months, with four and five night sailings to the Bahamas and the Western Caribbean. In late May 2013, she will return to Vancouver, British Columbia as her home port for three months of Alaska sailings. In September 2013, the Disney Wonder will be moved to Galveston, Texas to replace the Disney Magic.

Disappearance of crew member
On March 22, 2011, while the ship was off Mexico, crewmember Rebecca Coriam was reported missing when she failed to report for her morning shift. An investigation both on and off the vessel was fruitless. Her last known location had been in the crew lounge in the early morning hours, where security camera footage showed her talking on the phone, apparently upset, and then walking off. It was the first incidence of a disappearance from ship in Disney's history.

The case has been investigated by Bahamanian authorities, who have jurisdiction due to the ship's registry. No conclusions have been made public. Coriam's parents have been critical of how Disney has handled it, believing the company knows more than it has claimed to. They have set up a website seeking information, along with a Twitter feed. Activity on Coriam's credit card two months after her disappearance has fueled speculation that she might be alive.

British journalist Jon Ronson took the same route later that year and talked to crew members. None spoke for the record, but they believed Disney had more evidence than it had suggested publicly. One told Ronson that in the days after Coriam went missing, some flowers were left on the railing by the crew pool, suggesting awareness that she may have gone overboard from that spot. Another told Ronson that Disney had a tape of the phone conversation she had been engaging in when she was last seen
