Well this is certainly bad news for we Northwesterners!
Thanks for posting the newspaper article. Reading it prompted me to investigate further, by checking RCCL's website to see if there were anything mentioned in an official press release. There is nothing listed, so I decided to see if the 3 & 4 night cruises were still being offered to book on the site. The only Pacific Northwest cruise listed is for May, 2003, a 7-night cruise from San Diego to Vancouver, B.C.
And while that sounds like a fun cruise, I really enjoyed being able to just drive up to Seattle for a quick getaway aboard a luxury liner.............
