We did see the Northern Lights. Here is a photo from my stateroom balcony. Hopefully the image loads. You had to be on starbord side of the ship to see them. This was the night of August 31.
The CC meet up was okay. Steve introduced the staff in attendance. I chatted with one of the staff members responsible for onboard revenue and saw him a couple more times on the ship during the cruise.
Thanks for posting that. We missed them having done other prior tours and couldn't stay awake to check. Did the following night, got excited when we saw faint glow in distance, until I realised the direction the ship was going and checked watch compass. It was the dim glow of a town. My partner and I had a fantastic time aboard. Being on deck 3 near the lobby was very convenient to everything. The inside cabin is small, but well appointed. Only criticism would be having breakfast for 2 in the room is problematic.The ports and entertainment were first class. The specialty dining in Qsine at $55 each was a bargain with the menu and whole experience. Some funny things in fine dining were we kept on getting other people's meals, including at breakfast. I got my plate of designer omelette and thought what's this green stuff. It was my partner's. She had mine with toast I didn't order belonging to an English lady sitting next to us. Hilarious. Too many highlights to list. But a good tip was after disembarking we put cases in storage at Canada Place for $12 each and used the free shuttle to spend the day up Grouse Mountain and shuttle to Capalano Suspension bridge and got back just before 5pm to pick up cases. It also was a nice sunny day. I've spent the Canadian Rockies Bus tour and Inside passage, more hot than cold, didn't use any cold gear at all. Even when it rained it was short lived. I rate the Canada Rockies and Alaska very highly on my list of travels. I hope everyone had the same experience. Have a safe journey where ever you go.
