DISNEY WONDER is a cruise ship operated by Disney Cruise Line. The second ship to join the Disney fleet, she entered service in 1999. She is nearly identical in construction to her fleet mate, DISNEY MAGIC. The interior of DISNEY WONDER is decorated in the Art Nouveau style, in contrast to her sister ship, DISNEY MAGIC which is decorated in the Art Deco style. Both ships have 11 public decks, can accommodate 2,400 passengers in 875 staterooms, and have a crew of approximately 950.

DISNEY WONDER was built in the year following completion of DISNEY MAGIC. As of 2015, DISNEY WONDER sails various North American itineraries on a seasonal basis. From early September to late October 2016, the ship underwent dry dock in Cadiz, Spain where she had many new dining, entertainment, and accommodation enhancements. One of DISNEY WONDER's captains is Captain Fabian Dib and her "godmother" is Tinker Bell.
CARNIVAL WONDER entered into service in August 1999.

Her 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, DISNEY DREAM took over these itineraries. Since then, the DISNEY WONDER has been sailing a variety of itineraries that include stops in Alaska, the Mexican Riviera, Hawaii, the Caribbean, and passages through the Panama Canal.

Rebecca Coriam, a 24-year-old cast member, was last seen by one of the CARNIVAL WONDER's security cameras having an apparently upsetting telephone conversation in the early morning hours of March 22, 2011, before apparently disappearing the next day. Investigations continue into her whereabouts; it was the first such incident in the history of Disney Cruise Line.

The ship was dry-docked for an overhaul at the Navantia shipyard in Cadiz, Spain in September 2016 until October 23, 2016. The CARNIVAL WONDER was then stationed out of Galveston, Texas starting November 10, 2016.

2019 In service. Mr. Erhard Jung.
