We arrived in Vancouver a day early where we had reservations at the Listel Hotel, which is located in downtown. We had arranged for a private tour bus and went to the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park and a general tour of downtown, Al our guide was wonderful and Vancouver is a beautiful city. We boarded late due to extra cleaning of the ship because of a virus on the previous cruise. A little scary, but with all the precautions, no one on our cruise got sick. Check in was smooth and fast. We had rooms with a window, very large window and we loved the location of our rooms (4580-4586) on the 4th level. This is an short hall all to itself directly off the Centrum, everything was so close and easy to get to. The ship was clean, the food was excellent and the cruise activities wonderful. We had a late dinner seating in the dining room and our wait staff were superb. We didn't even try out the pay restuarants. All or part of group attended nearly every on-board activity and I can not say enough about the Cruise and Activity Directors. Jamie (Mama), Lisette and Gordon were our favs. We, but not everyone in our group purchased the deluxe drink package. We got our money's worth, but some others did not. If you are not a big drinker, don't purchase it. My DH is a big beer drinker and I love trying all different drinks. We attended most of the shows and really enjoyed them, but I did think they were a little weak, compared to some shows we've attended. Over all, a wonderful trip.
