Sail Date: May 2013
Cabin: Inside

Embarkation in Seattle went as expected, a bit like cattle but efficient. We arrived at 12:30 and were on the ship and our rooms were ready by 1:30 or so. Had lunch in the Tsar's MDR , which was very good. Got to our room and had two of our bags already there, the others came shortly. The room was adequate for us, an inside cabin with enough storage for our things. We spent little time in the room so worked out perfect for our needs. The shower was roomy and had plenty of hot water. Like that there was a clothesline to hang our suits on after swimming.

Took us the whole week to get a hold on where all the public areas were. The ship was beautiful and well maintained, the workers were working on the ship all the time. Loved the Spinnaker Lounge for relaxing and watching the gorgeous scenery go by. We had absolutely awesome weather.

As for fitness, we really didn't use the facilities as we enjoyed our morning walk around Deck 7, which is 2 2/3 laps around at 1 mile. Found we both lost 2 pounds each, so much to do...didn't feel the need to gorge on the delicious food offered.

Cabin Review


Cabin IC

Cabin was great for our needs. I love to sleep in the pitch dark , so this wasn't a problem. i was worried about room temperature, but this always seemed to be just right for us. Plenty of room for storing our stuff. Stored our empty luggage under the bed and out of the way. The room steward was great and always came back to a spotless room. We both thought the bathroom was roomy, toilet might have been at an odd angle, but it worked ok. Loved the shower feature of being able to adjust the temperature and strength of spray. Room had a flatscreen TV. It had a small fridge which I used to store medication, had enough room. Inside cabin worked well for us, as we were hardly there except to change clothes and sleep.
