Additional details

Sail Date: May 2016
Cabin: Oceanview Stateroom

This was a girlfriend's cruise. We all live in or near Seattle and we're celebrating our friend's 70th birthday.

What I liked about the cruise/cruise ship:

*The public ship areas were pretty and well-maintained.

Cabin Review

Oceanview Stateroom

Cabin I

Pro's: Nice being at the end of the hall. Our room had a love seat which was nice. The shower worked well; great water pressure. It was great to have a refrigerator.

Con's: room had a "filthy laundry" smell. Beds were very hard. Towels were skimpy and looked well worn. Also, would prefer a few extra towels. Drawers were dirty and needed to be wiped down. The drawer with the hairdryer had a liner but the liner was disgusting looking. No sign saying the water cost money but found out that the water costs money!

Did our own thing walking around town and lunch at an Irish tavern


Did our own thing. Don't miss the deep fried Nanaimo bars!
