We had a pretty quick boarding due to our room which was nice. None of us had ever been in a suite before so were excited to see it. It was called the Owner's Suite and it was at the front of the ship, second stateroom, next to the Royal Suite which had a baby grande piano! Another cool thing was the Captain would drive the ship in and out of ports, right there by our room so we could watch. Here is the captain with the tug captain, leaving Victoria...
It was called the Hayden Suite. You got a lot of perks being in that room and the one we used the most was you could order room service from the Dining Room! So they'd bring you everything you wanted as if you were down there which was nice. That included breakfast and lunch too and we had some fine meals in our room.
There were two big screen TV's and both had DVD players and we had a DVD library which we could order from if needed. The balcony was huge and had two chaise loungers and tables and then room to pull out two more chairs which we did.
It's going to be real hard to go back to a regular stateroom after this experience!! We enjoyed the heck out of it and with 4 of us, we were never crowded. It had so much storage that we didn't even use it all!
The couch made into a huge bed which originally Linda was in alone and GA had a rollaway. But they ended up sending back the rollaway since both of them could fit in the bed which he did make up everyday too so we could use it as a couch. Here's the two of them, first day at sea, sick as dogs....
Thankfully, Barb and I were fine. After that first day at sea, the girls were fine for the rest of the trip.
No rain, except for 3 minutes later in the day, and cool which I loved. Never sweated the whole week!!
I will continue our journey next time when we went into Juneau and Skagway which we loved.
Hope you enjoyed following along so far!
