This was the first RC cruise for my DAd and me. I flew to PDX to meet him and we drove from there to Seattle. We thought about spending the night in a hotel where we could leave the car and take a shuttle to the port, but elected to drive and park in the parking garage across from the ship. This worked out very well. Having never been to the Seattle port before, I was a bit apprehensive at first, but it ended up being quite easy to park there. The garage used valet parking and even shuttled us and our luggage to the front door of the port. Upon arriving back to the port, we quickly got the shuttle back to our car and were on our way back to Oregon. We had no problem with driving in and around Seattle.
As I mentioned, this was our first RC cruise. We chose it mainly because it left out of Seattle and returned to SEattle. Before this, we had both been on 2 Disney cruises and I had been on 2 Carnival cruises. I found this RC cruise to much more sedate then either of those cruises! Not saying that's bad, just not as memorable on ship as the other 2.
We shared an outside cabin. After having stayed in inside cabins 3 times, I decided it's nice to be able to get sunlight into the cabin during the day. Our cabin wasn't as large as the Disney ships', but bigger then the Carnival ones. I liked that it had a love seat in it, as well as the 2 beds. It would have been nice if there was a curtain that could be drawn between the 2 beds. In fact, even though I told them we needed 2 beds, it was originally set up as one. The room stewart had to separate them. I really don't remember much about this room stewart. WE didn't see him much, but we didn't have any complaints with him.
