Wasted time, so-so food

It takes so long to get on the boat but at least that seemed organized. Getting off the boat was very disorganized, no staff around to ask questions, they had little information when we did find someone. Food was so-so and I am not a picky eater at all. We spent $25 per person extra and $15 corkage fee to dine at one of the "premium" restaurants-Sabatinis. It was slightly better than the meal we had the night before in the regular restaurant, not worth the price at all. Sailing under the Golden Gate Bridge was amazing. The last day is spent lugging your bags around , waiting to get off the boat. Not relaxing at all. You can store your luggage in a room until 2 pm but the line was really long. The service  staff were really friendly and gracious. Our room was more than adequate

Only bad part was a movie they showed, it was at least R rated but I didn't see any warning anywhere.

We were upgraded to a room with a window on P 204. It is close to the waterline and could hear the waves crash against the boat, which I thought was cool
San Francisco, California
Sailing out of SF, under the Golden Gate bridge is magical
Vancouver (Canada Place), British Columbia
Gastown is fun to walk around


I actually think the buffet had the best and healthiest food choices of all the dining. Bring your own travel coffee maker. The regular coffee is awful and they charge for all other coffee drinks.
