Review summary

Weather was great the 99.99 % of the time. The Captain took us into the original Inside Passage (Grenville Channel). Most cruise ships don't go this route but stay in the easier to navigate Hecate Strait. Kudos to the Captain! Had a great time, already booked another trip (out of Seattle this time) for next May.

Embarkation

3 out of 5
I am rateing as only OK due to the difficulty getting around Canada Place. It's large and it was hard finding where to check our checked bags. Also, I was traveling with my disabled mother (who was in a wheelchair) which added to the difficulty getting around.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Tried to get an ADA compliant stateroom, but we booked to late for one. Although the cabin was just fine for me, my mom had issues getting in and out of the bathroom and needed my help with the latter. The stateroom was too small to use the scooter that we had rented, so wasted money there. The cabin stewards did their utmost to make us comfortable, they were great!

Ship tip

If you need an ADA room, reserve well in advance.
