Last cruise before covid-19

May 9th, 2020

We usually cruise with my wife's parents and sister and brother-in-law and did that on this cruise as well. I believe everyone had a good time. The food venues were not open as late as a usually are on this cruise. We didn't do a lot of the onboard shows as we played cards in the library each night. We live in different states so we try to spend our time together when we cruise.

Cruise was good. The staff was less than friendly except our head waiter Chris table 429 was amazing.

This cruise was a great way for us to see more of the west coast, and the ease of getting to Seattle from Vancouver without adding flights even better
