A few points to ponder!
We all like the free style crusing! We never waited over 3 minutes to get into any dinner meals. The service was second to none! We took somebodys advice from the critic and talked often to our servers about their families and they do appreciate this.
We took in all the shows and comedians. Some people in the past did not like some things about Dave H. We found Dave to be very friendly and actually talked to him many times on the ship.
My 16 year old son had a great time with other teens! He was the last one in the cabin every night!
We spent two days in Seattle before the cruise and went to Mt. St. Helans, Olympia (on the way to St. Helans but there is a great place to eat on the waterfront in Olympia. It is also next to a open air market that was great.) We did the Space Needle and would suggest eating at the top.
We also did Pikes Market.
Everything about the cruise was great but the weather was raining at times during the week and the last day at sea we had some big swells and many people were bothered by this. I wore the patch behind the ear and felt that helped.
We enjoyed everything!
