American Cruise Line is our favorite line. I love the smaller number of passengers. The ships are lovely. Service is superior. Food is delectable, and we enjoyed the 1/2 portions! The cocktail hour is a big fun plus! The elevators were most important to me.
This time we went to Seattle for the Puget Sound Cruise. On a pre-cruise package, we stayed at a beautiful Sheraton Hotel on Friday night. On Saturday morning, we had a pleasant tour of Seattle and were delivered to the ship (American Spirit) for lunch.
We were very lucky in that the weather was sunny and warm, about 70-80 degrees or so.
In the past, We have had a cabin with a balcony. We seldom used it, so I decided to try a less expensive cabin with a big window. It was great. I would do that again! Our cabin was homey and good in every way. And, we still had access to all the public rooms.
