Vancouver-round-trip cruises, with no need for air travel, are always a draw for us! This cruise was a terrific 10 day relaxing get-away and we are very glad we went! We were dropped off in Mission in time for the final West Coast Express commuter train to Waterfront Station, had breakfast in the Food Court then walked over to Canada Place for Embarkation. Would do that again if smaller suitcases involved. Anytime Dining was the only option available when we booked and it worked out well. We would choose that option on future cruises as it gave us the freedom to opt-out and head to the International Café or Horizon Court instead without inconveniencing dining room wait staff by our absence. Smaller suitcase requirements (for train and skytrain lugging) can now be met as minimal formal and smart casual outfits would be required! I found out on day 9 that there was a jigsaw puzzle table on deck 14, upstairs in the undercover pool area, by the pingpong tables! Wish I had heard that on day 1! :) Women's public washrooms were often down to one working stall....which made for occasional long lines, especially at disembarkation time after the requested 'vacate your cabin' time had come and gone. Embarkation and Disembarkation went quite smoothly. We took Skytrain to Surrey, where a friend picked us up after our cruise.

Relaxing get-away!
