We arrived in Vancouver a couple of days before commencing our cruise, what a fabulous city . Easy to get round by their Hop On/ Hop Off buses, people very friendly and helpful. Visited Victoria and the Butchart Gardens which are well worth a trip Arrived at the embarkation point by cab from our centrally positioned hotel and we just followed the directions given by the staff, a very smooth operation to board the ship. The ship was very impressive , never having cruised before we did not know what to expecthowever it was a great experience . The cabin was very comfortable, we ate in the main dining room , the food on board was excellent, our waiter on table 313 Tom was excellent and Edgar the wine waiter also . There were so many activities going on and the port excursions were very well organised. The service from the staff was faultless they were so friendly and helpful There were several options for entertainment and some very interesting talks .The scenery on the way to Alaska and return journey was superb and we were very lucky with good weather .Disembarkation was also easy and we were soon on our way to another part of our tripacross Canada

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom
Cabin VE 7107
Our cabin was excellent, there was lots of space for clothes, the balcony was superb for having a quiet time if you wished and taking photos especially early mornings . Our cabin steward Nissan was excellent always there if needed, he had lots of good advice for us as it was our first time on a cruise. The room was kept perfectly with chocolates at night and towel animals . I would hope that Nissan is considered as employee of the month.
