It was a smooth operation. We had to wait a little while to actually board the ship, but it wasn’t to inconvenient.

Variety of food choices were good.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Onboard activities were good, although I didn’t participate in many at all. I was tired from lots of walking. I watched the movies under the stars, gambled a bit, sat out on deck watching the sun set, and listened to music for a bit each night.

Arrived a few days early to spend my birthday in Vancouver Canada. Rainy and I overcast some days. Didn’t manage to get plenty of sunshine on my special day before sailing. Awesome place to visit. Definitely will be back for another visit.

Loved taking a walk thru this small quiet quaint place. It was a lovely place.

Seattle, Washington

Visited Seattle last year. So I didn’t do much when we docked. Meet up with family for lunch, souvenir shopped, and road the giant roller coaster.

Astoria, Oregon
