Overall, this was a very relaxing and enjoyable cruise from San Diego to Vancouver. The entertainment was great, in particular, Santtino & the Blakjaxs. The staff was very accomodating and we were very satisfied with the level of service. The debarkation for passengers flying from Vancouver was handled extremely well with Ship represenatives shepherding passengers from pierside, to buses and all the way to bag pickup at Vancouver airport and then directing passengers to the appropriate airline counter. A few very minor discrepancies: the bus driver taking us to the airport was unfamilar with the route and had to get phone directions, initially, there were no standup hand sanitizers acivated at the food venues (once we asked about why they weren't being used, they magically appeared the next time we entered the dining area), the tour to Seaside/Astoria started late and we felt hurried with not enough time to explore the stops before returning to the pier and after we signed up for tours online and receiving our confirmation, upon arrival, we found that only one of us had tour tickets and the Tour Desk had to confirm my confirmation with the Miami office. After cruising on several other lines, Royal Caribbean is at the top of our list for customer satisfaction.
