Review SummaryNo comparison to Princess & Holland American (which were excellent!) We did not pay much for this cruise, so I can't complain too much. I enjoyed playing BINGO, I enjoyed the ports especially Victoria. Cruise was smooth except for the last day, which was very very rocky. The kids' program was a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT. Especially when they cancelled all activities on the last full day-- which was the day we were at sea!! That's when you really need a kid's program! The food wasn't bad, it just wasn't great. The desserts were blah. Regarding the entertainment, I like the Comedian, the Acrobats and the Magic show. The two other shows were not that interesting (Singing/Dance Revue and a Juggler). Drinks were generally good. But they do charge for soft drinks (soda), even at meals.
