You can save time and effort by taking the Cruise out of Seattle. Boarder crossing are a hassle. I wanted to see Vancouver BC , rated the best city in the world to live in. Being from Texas I think we have better. But everything in Texas is better.

1) Plan your day as soon as you get the itinerary (receive it late the day before). There are lots of things to do even when you don't go ashore. 2) Don't use Internet on board, too expensive with slow connectivity. Use Internet cafes on land instead. 3) Lido deck has great variety of food.

Food at the Lido cafeteria was not as good as on other ships on which we have traveled. Nor was there a particular variety. On the other hand, the cruise director does a great job and is a joy to be around.

Don't bother with the Rotterdam Dining Room unless you just like to dress up. Food was slow and inconsistent. Lido adds flexibility and you can pick and choose a wide variety. Worth at Lido trying is the Italian counter. Never change money on board. They blame Bank of America for their poor ra
