The management by the Cruise staff is excellent. We liked seeing all these older women taking care of the check-in, it was so charming to see these people doing worthwhile work and being so friendly and polite. Checking in on the boat for us was quick. Our luggage arrived at a reasonable time at our room.
We disembarked at Vancouver. We had seen many comments of praise about Princess disembarkation before and indeed it lived up to the standards described by others previously. Quick, smooth, well organized.
As written above. Disembarking was quick, smooth, efficient. Have to go through Canadian security which was not too slow. Vancouver airport is more user-friendly than perhaps the worlds most user-unfriendly airpor, Toronto's Pearson International, which in its newest Terminal 1 has almost zero electrical outlets for your laptop, cellphone, etc.
