Yup. Short, but sweet. ----------------------> I guess I can't submit this short review, although I think I said it all in those 4 (four) words. Oh well. Software. U-No.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
a beauty of a ship; colorful décor; very, very clean and shiny; and the best crew/staff ever!

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
the fitness centre was extraordinary


5 out of 5
loved the piano duel every night; those two piano slingers were just fantastic!; loved it even more than a single old man, sitting a piano, singing sad songs, and drinking

Children's Programs

5 out of 5
Must have been great, since I didn't see any, well, very many, rug rat urchins running all over, and under; they were probably in the penalty box, for a major, and an ejection from the series

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff was the bestest - ever!!! Room Stewards - Made & Dena were the best we have ever had, on any cruise line; Dining Room staff/team - Josep / Homer / Noel - again, the best dining room team to ever wait a table! Go team!!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Clean as clean could be. We were really surprised at how clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Nice little cabin, with a nice little view.

Ship tip

bring your ear plugs, for night time sleep, to overcome the air conditioner; or just turn off your hearing aid

Ports of call

San Diego, California

3 out of 5
nice CA Mission town; go visit the mission!

Santa Barbara, California

5 out of 5
Very nice CA Mission town; go visit the mission!

San Francisco, California

5 out of 5
Very nice CA Mission town; go visit the mission! But, warning, get the Poop Map, and beware so you don't step in the poop, or step on any of the many drug needles left laying about; and don't argue with the homeless, because they are very aggressive, even while sleeping off their latest fix; and don't give money to homeless; kind of like feeding pigeons; but a very nice CA Mission visit!

Victoria, British Columbia

5 out of 5
good beer, eh!

Vancouver (Canada Place), British Columbia

5 out of 5
great city; not as many homeless as San Francisco; maybe they could import immigrant homeless from San Francisco, to make more Canadian citizens;
