Review Summary

The itinary was great. Areas I have always wanted to visit. The cruise staff and activities were great. Had to wait too long at the Casino for a machine, but I guess it saved me money. The food was not as good as on other ships in the main dining room, but not terrible. The service was good. Entertainment was good.

The food in the main dining room left a little to be desired. Been on other ships and the food was not very good on this trip.

Our room steward Stetson was fabulous. Our waiters Dadan and Arif in the main dining room table 466 were equally fabulous although the food was not that great.

Ports Of Call

Seattle, Washington

Absolutely loved Seattle. The weather was a perfect 82 degrees during the two days I spent there. Would definitely go again. Pike Place, the Aquarium, Space Needle and Chihuly were amazing. Definitely should get the City pass if not on a tour. Armory has a great food court.

Astoria, Oregon

5 out of 5
Did a tour to Seaside and Cannon Beach. I really enjoyed that but the weather is a little cool in this part of Oregon. Apparently it is always a low of 39 to a high of 69.

San Francisco, California

5 out of 5
Always love visiting San Francisco. Lots to do. Visit to Alcatraz was worth it, but a little chilly on the water in the Pacific. The Bay Bridge is stunning at night as they have added synchronized lighting. Sausalito was worth the visit.

Victoria, British Columbia

5 out of 5
Absolutely Beautiful Place. Weather was equally beautiful at 80 degrees when we went. Bushart Gardens were very nice as was Craggdaroch Castle. Wish I had more time to explore the shops along the waterfront. Waterfront was very pretty with all the restaurants and shops and off course the famous Empress Hotel.
