Explore the entire ship. There is an aft elevator hidden away which goes all the way to deck 19 for golf, BB, and a great observation deck. All the way forward on deck 14 there is a door that is not marked which leads to the observation area on top of the bridge. This area gives the best view along both sides of the ship, and of course a panoramic view forward.

The food on this trip was so good. I wanted to try everything. Grab some pizza at the pizzeria let at night and chat with friends.

If you want to eat in a hurry and don’t want to fight the crowds in the horizon court or spend time in the dining rooms have a bite at the Piazza on deck 5 the food and service was great

It can be confusing getting to your stateroom once you are off the elevator. My tip --- look at the colour of your carpet on your side of the stateroom floor and you will never forget whether you go left or right again off the elevators. My carpet had red in it while the other side was plain blue.

On sea days, afternoon tea is a lovely way to spend the afternoon.

Because there were so many Elite and Platinum members on board, laundry service took 72 hours instead of the usual 24. Since my husband's suit was not pressed, we missed the first formal night. If you are going to be in a similar situation, pay the extra for one day service or press items yourself

Not sure how you can get rooms together. There were 15 of us and we were scattered all over the ship. Not sure if this was an error on my travel agents part or what.

I do not have a comment about the ship. My only comment is I can't wait for my next cruise

Don't waste your time trying to do an excursion in Victoria, BC. There just isn't enough time, go enjoy the shopping within walking distance instead.

If you are a smoker - (or even if you aren't) don't miss out on the Riviera Deck, It's the gem of the ship.
