The Pacific Coast cruise took us to Astoria, OR (quaint town), San Francisco, Monterey (gorgeous) and Victoria (cozy and beautiful). Embarkation went very smoothly. We hired a car to take us to the port, so that made it especially easy. Our cabins were very soundproof - never heard our neighbors OR each other (bathroom was very-well insulated). The staff were attentive and kind and the dining services were REALLY good. Loved the sit-down dinners and I'm glad we chose "Anytime Dining," which really means you can choose which of the two (or three?) main dining rooms you'd like to visit anytime between 7 and 9. You're also given the choice to share a big table (which we loved, even though we are introverts) or to wait a little longer for a private table. We also tried one of the surcharge restaurants (the Crown Grill) and loved the window seating, private table and extra attention (plus amazing steak). I can see why the older crowd would really enjoy a cruise, but I'm not sure I need to do that again.
* buy heavy-duty hook magnets (the walls have nice wallpaper, but they are covering metal so your magnets will stick almost anywhere). I used those for our coats, my purse, my shower bag, scarf, key card lanyard, jackets, clothes, etc...
More spacious than I thought and the sound-proofing was excellent (no noise from bathroom and never heard our neighbors)
