Review summary

We booked with friends and we were midship 14th deck & they were as far aft as you could get on the 8th deck. Would have been nice to be closer to them. However much preferred our location to theirs. Nice to be able to use the onboard message app but would be even better to have some kind of alert when you got a message.

Great service when dropping our luggage. Long lines prior to loading but I guess that’s to be expected.

Onboard Activities

Loved the Trivia. Wish there was more of that. Wouldn’t necessarily have to hand out prizes every time. Or maybe just a drink Credit instead of a prize or a piece of chocolate!

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
All staff that I encountered were great.

Ship Quality

When something is long and narrow there aren’t too many other choices for the layout. Did a lot of walking & waiting for the elevators. Lung & knee problems prevents me from too much stair climbing.

Cabin / Stateroom

Loved the matttresses! The cabin was small but had everything necessary. One more accessible plug would have been handy.

Ports of call

Vancouver (Canada Place), British Columbia

Stayed in our room as instructed by the handouts only to find out we could have walked off much earlier if we’d just left our room when we were ready.
