Up at 4:15 a.m. to meet our 5:00 a.m. car to take us to our 7:00 a.m. flight on Air Canada from Newark Airport to Vancouver. It all went seamlessly, but I note that Air Canada is a rather austere airline so don’t expect any frills or polished service. Fortunately we had bulkhead seating that really was just the end of probably the least impressive business class I have ever seen, so we had room for our bags and to stretch out. Air Canada got us to Vancouver – with our luggage (I can get used to that!) an hour early, so I have no complaints.
As this ship is not the newest, but is most certainly not old, there are a number of little things you notice that are missing (such as lights automatically turning on when you enter the walk-in closet), but they do not detract from the very comfortable ambiance and warm tones.
The Bulgari toiletries, in sufficiently large size, are a very nice touch.
