Recently returned from a repositioning cruise from Vancouver on 6th October and arriving in LA on 11th October.
Originally the itinerary included two ports 1. Victoria, BC and 2. San Francisco. Sadly a few days prior to departing, we were informed Victoria had to be cancelled due to tidal issues and this resulted in a delay of departure from Vancouver due to passing under Lions Bridge. Naturally this was quite disappointing for such a short cruise however we were issued $50 onboard credit. We were not issued any refund of port fees though.
Embarkation: Relatively straight forward and I was on the ship within 15 minutes. I had completed everything online so it was a matter of collecting my sea pass and signing paperwork.
Excellent room. Near the stairs and a few floors up to The Observation Lounge and Garden café.
I didn't do an NCL excursion. I signed up for the city bikes Mobi for $12 for a 24 hour pass. Journeys up to 30 mins are included. I cycled around Stanley park and over to Grenville Island. Lovely way to spend a few hours.
