We sailed on the 12 night cruise from San Francisco disembarking at Vancouver. Embarkation in SF was chaotic - there just weren't enough baggage handlers and long queues developed of people trying to hand over luggage. None of the staff on the ground seemed to know what was happening. Once we got through this boarding was smooth. The cabin was available almost immediately and we had luggage back by 2 pm. Our cabin was midship deck 7 and was clean and comfortable. The ship is older and in some areas this is apparent but never a problem. Cabin staff were inobtrusive but efficient. We had Select dining and could not always reserve a table for the time we wanted - this turned out not to be an issue as there was always a free table if we just turned up but just not available to reserve. Odd but no problem. Food in dining room was fine and usual celebrity fare. Waiters all great. We had a classic drink package and choices seem less. There is also a definite effort to upsell to Premium. We were asked twice if we would like to upgrade in the first 24 hours. I like to drink Sauvignon Blanc but was told not available in the dining room or on classic package. We found out it was included in Cellar Masters but sommeliers at first said we could not have it brought into the dining room so we took it ourselves. We then met the wonderful King Richard a sommelier who sorted it all and I had my favourite drink for the rest of the cruise. We thought food in Ocean View was Ok but choices seemed more limited. The weather was stunning and ports amazing. We enjoyed the talks by Milos the naturalist who was very informed and also very entertaining. We saw Eagles, Whales, Sea Lions and Porpoises from the ship. We booked excursions privately except for Ketchikan where we took a ships trip to the Saxman village which we enjoyed. Entertainment - Jermaine and Von work very hard and we particularly enjoyed the quizzes. Production shows were better than usual - less competition between the singers and orchestra for volume. Most of visiting performers were good.

Great Time
