Review summary

Great itinerary! Astoria, Oregon surprised us because it was so interesting. We chose sites to see on our own. We would have liked a few more hours in San Francisco on our 2nd day there because we felt rushed. We went to Sonoma on our own the 1st day, had lunch in a lovely garden cafe, and walked over to Sebastiani Winery for a wine tasting. We took a ferry to Sausalito on the 2nd day and would have liked to spend more time there. Check the ferry schedule on line before you go to Sausalito. It probably would have been better to take an Uber from the ship because the shuttle to the ferry never came and we wasted time waiting for it. We took Celebrity’s excursion to Butchart Gardens in Victoria and it was beautiful, and the guide was very interesting. After we disembarked in Vancouver, we stayed at the Century Plaza for 2 days and did the dual pass Hop On, Hop Off Bus. Vancouver is a beautiful city and we saw a lot.

We stood on line for close to an hour-and-a-half to embark.

Onboard Activities

We loved line dancing and took 2 Zumba classes with Leo from Argentina, who was exuberant so much fun. Overall, there weren’t enough on board activities during the 2 days we spent at sea. We loved Silent Disco on the 2 nights when we didn’t have ports of call during the day.
