Quick one day repositioning cruise to Seattle from Vancouver on the May long weekend for Canadians. Embarkation took an hour although I heard it took later arrivals a few hours, the key is to know what kind of traffic the port will be ... Read more

Embarkation was very smooth. I think the secret for this was the fact that they let people into the terminal only at their allocated time to board. There was not the usual 1000 people in the terminal all clambering to get aboard. 20 ... Read more

This was my first experience on a cruise. Once on the ship I was amazed at how helpful and polite the entire staff was. Ivana and Lloyd were extremely courteous and attentive to our group. I wish I had got their lasts names to commend them ... Read more

I strongly agree with all the points that a previous contributor-'cherub flashpoint', has already noted; impolite security staff who have no ability to smile, waiting staff that hound you constantly for drinks( God help you if you try to ... Read more

We chose this cruise to visit the top end of Australia. We were saddened to get an email before we left saying that the ship was unable to travel at full speed and they had to drop Yorkeys Knob off the list of ports. A lot of people ... Read more
