My friend posted this on facebook, they are onboard.

The announcement said we needed "essential spare parts". Mike and I watched from Deck 4 as they brought on carbon dioxide cylinders.

Same problems here

I know it only took us out of our way for a couple hours, but they had to close the stores, drain the pool and the reason I went with the 5 day cruise was to have the day at sea, we left beautiful sunny skies into cloudy windy rougher seas so the day was lost, we were told by concierge that they needed new refrigerators for the food but that doesn't sound right??? We too on deck eight had plumbing problems no toilets and rented a cabana at castaway cay and the door of fridge was so rusted it fell off so there went our cold drinks!!!!! Ship is beautiful but there are tons of contractors all over, chemical smells in hallway for whatever they are doing...which is all understandable but for the money paid ?????a little disappointing nothing was said or no compensation was given! I love Disney and loved the cruise but to pay the same amount people two months from now will pay and there will be none of these problems, not very Disney like

We are still having potty problems in 2578. Have had to contact guest services 6 times, and our stateroom attendant called two more times on our behalf. They keep temporarily fixing, but we just got back to the room after being in Key West to find another flood. This is our third flood. We have also had multiple bouts of the toilet not flushing, including overnight. Please avoid this cabin for the near future.

That's terrible. I am so sorry you are going through that. Try to have fun anyway. And as far as asking for refunds or discounts, why not? The worst they can say is no and if they say yes it'll be great.

No trip report, but so far we have to call the guest services every time we want to flush our toilet. And have seen 3-4 leaks from pipes in the ceiling, 2 flooded staterooms. It's clear it's gonna take some time to work the bugs out. Still contractors onboard working.

Do you think it's possible to ask for some kind of discount or credit because our toilet has not worked at all?

I certainly never saw these problems reported to this degree before. Of course, most pre-dry dock posts were gushing about it and how it was the best and Dream-class not so much as well.

It sounds like plumbing issues have been popping up on the magic for the last few years, also some similar reports of flooding or leaks on the wonder. U wonder how much of this is new vs trying to rush the shop back from dry dock. May be more publicity bc more disney regulars tried to be on the first sailings or maybe just increased expectations bc of all the hype on the dry dock. Either way looking forward to my next cruise on the fantasy!

They are lucky - we have been warm for the last 8 days. A couple places were cool and on the 11:1 cruise some people brought blankets into the show so they must have been cold, but we were not.

The true test of Disney is if they take this experience to heart and actually spend more time fixing pluming, air conditioning, and removing rust and mold on the Wonder's dry dock next year. I really don't see the Wonder going to Cadiz for her dry dock after this experience. Most likely she'll end up in Norfolk, Va.

I'm so sorry for the problems you are having!!! We sail December 4th, and I am hoping for the best. That's really all you can do...

We are in 8040 and with the exception of maybe 1-2 hours of cold water and a short bout with a toilet that was delayed in flushing, we have been quite happy with our cruise. Our Palo dinner on Wednesday night had no AC issues, but our brunch on Friday did. They gave us a discount on the meal, I suspect it was because of the temperature. It did get quite warm in There.

I would also say that our room is in really good shape. The new carpet looms fine and the bathrooms have been working well with the short exception today. The contractors are not uncommon to see, but has taken nothing away from our experience. All that said, it is a 15 year old ship and does show that age, but given the use that the ship gets, it is to be expected.

It must have been a fairly serious situation, considering that the ship was stopping in Key West the next day. Whatever it was that was loaded after going back to Miami could have easily been driven overnight to Key West and loaded there the next day. So whatever it was, the ship couldn't wait even a day for it.
