PacifIc Coastal cruises are great for a relaxing getaway but not this time: 2.5 hours for embarkation and the lifeboat drill after 11 pm was just the start of this disaster vacation that created more stress an angst than one could ever imagine! When it was time to get off at the ports they were long lines weaving around the entire ship. Try booking specialty restaurants – nothing was ever even available yet there were still lines to waiting for them to tell you that nothing was available. Except for some special instances the food was average at best. Forget the bus say unless you wanted to spend an hour walking around trying to find a seat. Oh and if you want to try any entertainment don’t even think about it on the ship. It shows were all sold out lines were long, however we were finally able to catch the comedy show as long as we were standing probably in violation of fire code in the very back!

Long lines, cancelled port, nothing available including specialty restaurants
