The buffets could have had a more diverse selection. Was mainly geared toward one group

Onboard Activities

About the only things we done was Bingo and trivia. Need more things to do on ship while in port.

Beautiful place. Didn’t have to stay in there as long as we did. Not much to really look at.

Would have loved, loved, loved to have stayed here longer. Beautiful little town. Didn’t have long here. Watched the lumberjack show. Really funny.

Victoria, British Columbia

Did not get off ship here. Would have loved to but wasn’t going to be here long and was pretty much night time. Didn’t think we’d get the best of what they had to offer. No longer than we were going to be there, wasn’t with the hassle of getting off and back on

The ship part was fine. It was when we got to the transport to airport. Our driver wasn’t very nice because the people loading the busses started loading her and she wasn’t happy about it. She said she wasn’t ready for them to start loading her bus. What was she doing. She was there to do a job, she shouldn’t have been there if her bus wasn’t ready to go.
