A favorite pre-cruise and post-cruise ride is

Elite Limousine.

Darwin George picked us up at our condo in his brand new black beauty and we had the most wonderful ride to the ship you could ever hope to have.



The Solarium


Colony Club    
Van Q. Bear & Friend  
Gala Buffet      
Centrum & Glass Elevators    
Shipshape Center.  Lots of high-tech equipment, great facilities, and even a multi-purpose sports court.  The only flaw in this design is that the court is directly above the Windjammer Cafe, which can be a bit disarming early in the morning to hear thumping on the ceiling over your freshly-cooked omelette.    
Cruising the Strait of Georgia.  This was a very beautiful day in British Columbia.  Ample proof of how B. C. got its nickname.    
Fore!!  Tia battles
"Tigger" Wood
Around the ship and the Northwest:  Tia in the library, Tia and Lord Horatio Nelson, Margaret & Bill (Tigger Woods), the Vanouver Gang of 4, the pool while in Seattle, the pool whil in Vancouver, Tia and "Gilligan", the Empress Hotel, and the Parliament Building.

"Gilligan" is really Peter MacDonald, our dear friend from Victoria who drove all the way down to meet our ship and bring us some homemade (and quite tasty) wine.  By the way, that's NOT the S.S. Minnow in the background.

Our Stateroom and balcony.  Ample space and very quiet.
