Pre Cruise: Seattle: Clean, nice city to visit, very walkable, bus transportation inside town center FREE. Embarkation:Fast and Efficient. (On in 10-15 minutes) Weather:Rain, fog, cool 60s Bring a windbreaker. Ship: new IPads by elevators easy to navigate and see what's going on. New big screen on pool deck...rained most of week didn't get to watch... Cirque type show in atrium, restaurants and Starbucks (seemed always empty) Cabins: new flat screen tvs limited channels when sailing bathrms: new sinks:small faucets:water savers Entertainment: The Drifters, Comedian(s), Love and Marriage show, The Quest Bingo: Win a Free Cruise (Big Hit) Food: Ok seemed very Salty, Windjammer: Limited... Unimpressive! Overall...Nice cruise but due to weather conditions gathering area very crowded and Solarium pool/hot tub filled with children. Debarkation: Fast walk off...Now that's a way to get 100s off a ship fast! You can leave w/your luggage at 7:30 am and be at airport in 20-30 minutes depending on traffic.
