Review summary

Was a disappiointing cruise as we only made it to 3 of the 8 ports and ended just heading back home 3 days early. PCL was very generous in their compensation package.

Embarkation

Very quick and efficient. Though we did not recieve a thermal scan nor were we required to sign an attestation to our health. Just one question pertaining travel from China within 14 days.

Food and Dining

Food was good. The two English Pub days were superb. The meal at the specialty dining at Crown Grill was phenomenal. The Buffet had a great assortment of food. The suppers were a hit or miss though.

Ship Quality

Love the ship layout. Cleanliness was top notch, considering the noro outbreak.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Downgraded to an obstructed ocean view. Was not disappointed. Was a great little room. The view was good as it overlooked the lifeboat. Would totally book this room again. The only drawback was the music in the later evening from the lounge below. But that typically ended around 11:30pm.

Ship tip

Wash your hands. Please!

Nice little island. It was intermittent rain, so we just opted to walk around the town instead of going to the beach. Found a grocery store and bought some unique food items. Much cheaper than the tourist shops closer to port.
