The three day coastal cruise was of an excellent value. Arrived in Vancouver Canada Place at 2 p.m. and was surprised to still see lots of people lining up. But the line moved quickly. Passengers go through US immigrations before boarding and the check-in was fast and efficient.
Service onboard was aomng the top notch. Staff are friendly, always smiling and adressing passengers when meet in the hall way. Public areas are well maintained. On board entertainment and programs were well scheduled, kept the three night journey (stop at no where) filled. The jaggler, and the show were both of excellent quality. Food in both the dinning room, and the Lido buffet were of great quality. In comparision to my previous cruises (RCCL, Celebrity, HAL, and NCL), it stands out. I am very happy.
Both Embarkation and Debarkation are efficiently carried out. Only downside is that if you rent a car from Enterprises at the port, the line for the shuttle is so long, that it can take up to 1 - 1.5 hours standing in the sun (the shuttle is a 10 seater van). After arrival at the car rental (the closest to the port), another 1 hour in line is necessary to reach the counter, and another 20 minutes to get the car. It has nothing to do with the cruise, but car renters in Los Angeles Port, please be aware.
A507, and A517 were two larger than normal inside stateroom, located higher on the deck 12, mid section. It is probably 50% larger than most of the standard inside / outside staterooms. They prepresents excellent values. Layout are much more generous than regular inside / outside staterooms, closet space are plenty, with full enclosure (regular stateroom's closet has no door). The location is very convenient, as one level up is the Lido and the main pools. There are not too much cabins next to these two rooms, so it is very quiet.
