Love the bathroom upgrade from tub to shower. Not having to step over the tub to shower was so much easier. Also, love the glass enclosure and not having the shower curtain stick to the body was a most welcome change.

Ship tip

After embarkation have lunch in the dining room. Much more relaxing than fighting the crowds in the Lido

Not much to do here except take the Walmart shuttle to pick up some needed items. However this Walmart does not provide bags so bring your own.

Such a beautiful city and Butchart Garden makes this a wonderful stop.
