I would give you a picture of the route – but forgot to pull it prior to today – and of course it is not on any website anymore…
The ship is RCCL’s Quantum of the Seas. This is the ship that I received the free cruise on last July (2021) and sailed again to Alaska this past (?spring?). You can tell the mind is going – or at least that is my excuse. I like the ship, except for the size; too big. OTOH, it means that there is a lot of space in which to spread out and many choices for meals.
Ah – ship capacity is 4900. We are sailing with ~ 2900 so it could be worse. Apparently there aren’t all many senior status cruisers so they are letting us into the concierge lounge along with the suites passengers.
I survived the trip from the hotel (took Lyft rather than hiking 1.5 km hauling suitcase and back pack). Canada Place (the cruise terminal portion) was a total zoo. Three ships in port – none of the small – Quantum of the Seas, NCL Jewel, NCL Spirit. One NCL ship is headed to Alaska, the other on a similar route to ours.

Except that I am really not – since the next leg is bound for Australia.
Victoria is tomorrow, then I will do the usual trip commentary and some ship pictures to fill up at least some of my mental space on all of those sea days.
Off to the lounge and then to supper….
