We were guided from the moment we arrived at Canada Place. There was no room for taking a wrong turn. The crew made it easy for us to register and board.

Ship Quality

The ship was not recent , in general well preserved. However there a a recuring foul smell in bathroom. The room service was exceptional and came to refresh bathroom and room, 3 x per day which helped.
