Steve: It is great to hear your good attitude. I do hope you get into one of the gorgeous suites.
My DH and I were on the ship this week and it was a wonderful cruise. The weather was "out of this world" with beautiful sunshine and clear skys at night.
We do have some major questions about the handeling of embarkation and disembarkation here at Pier 30 in Seattle.
We got into port at noon and we did not get off until 5 P.M. !!
The best place to sit and enjoy the scenery is up in Skywalkers. We were there yesterday as we "slowly" cruised home from Victoria. We were told we could not go over 7 knots. Had been cruising at 21 and 22 knots before the shaft was damaged to the props.
Enjoy the internet while you can. It was not working most of the week.....I did use it a couple of times but most of the time it was off. We had a power outage one day and that damaged the internet transmissions to all of the ship.
Be sure to have a meal in Sabatini's...the service is great and the meal fantastic. Worth the $20 for something special.
We also enjoyed Sterlings. The primerib and New York steak was extra good.
Please keep us posted on your trip and how it goes.
