We arrived at SeaTac and took Shuttle Express to the Port of Seattle. We had book only a one way trip ($32 for 3 people)and were offered a return trip at the airport for only $10 more (which we declined since we had after cruise plans). Upon our arrival at the Port of Seattle, we walked our suitcases over to the x-ray machine (luggage is self-service at the port) and was on the ship 10 minutes later.
Our cabin was 6019 which is an Ocean View. The cabin is about 42 sq feet larger then the other cabins due to it's location. The extra space contains a second table and seat. This was nice since when our daughter used the fold-out bed, we still had a seat to use.
The ship is in very good shape. Some reviewers have said the quality of the food, and staff, has gone down. Being our 8th cruise, we would love to have seen what it was like before since we found the current quality to be outstanding. Sometimes after dinner we would sneak a 2nd dinner in just so we could visit the sushi bar. There was a little confusion the first 2 nights at dinner as other guests changed their table locations. By the 3rd night, the tables were set and remained the same for the rest of the cruise.
Great cabin with about 42 extra feet of space due to the location. Extra area has an extra couch and chair
