Review summary

We chose this vacation for ports of call and timing, had a great time. Port of Vancouver dropped the ball on getting everyone on board in a timely fashion. After speaking with other guests that have used this port before their experiences have been repeated each time. Unless we get word that the service has improved I will not use the Port of Vancouver again. In 15 different embarkation this was by far the worst. There were Platinum members that also waited up to two hours.

We were slotted times to show up at the port and check in took almost 3&1/2 hours to complete
