Cabin: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom

Pacific Coastal - 5 days on the Oosterdam

Embarkation: Took a taxi to Canada Place - delivered right to where we needed to check in! Arrived at 10:45 - process was painless and we were on the ship 45 minutes later. Made our way to the Lido and found a table for 4 - all the tables for 2 were taken. Shared with two nice ladies from Canada.

Cabin. We were able to go to the cabin at 1:30pm. We booked a VF guarantee - that was all that was available in the balcony class - and we were assigned a VF on Deck 4 - one with a steel railing. We actually liked the steel railing as it seemed more private and we had more space on the balcony itself. Cabin itself: when we arrived the safe wouldn't work, the connecting door to the cabin next to us wasn't locked (we were QUITE surprised when our next door neighbor poked his head in!), no bathrobes, no wire fruit basket. We called the front desk immediately about the safe and the unlocked connecting door - said they would send someone - but neither were fixed until 8pm and 4 phone calls later. Didn't see our room steward at all that first day.
