How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I want to be clear why I gave this 3 stars. First of all, the cruise itself was great - 5 stars. The staff was exceptional and the vessel clean and comfortable. The 3 star part comes in with the logistics between Goldstar and Argosy. The stated time on Goldstar was 30 minutes off from actual (3:00pm departure on Goldstar, 3:30pm departure stated at dock). Another gripe was anyone who booked through Goldstar had to go through an additional process at the counter to get transferred from the Kirkland boat trip to the Seattle Lake one, even though it looked like we booked correctly on Goldstar. Multiple transfers like this threw the departure time back by at least 15 min. The attitude of the counter person was one of "exasperation" toward Goldstar, and clearly it was making her job more difficult that day. Not sure if this was a one-time glitch or pervasive in the Goldstar/Argosy ticketing. Still, I recommend the trip - both my kids and 80-something mother liked it. Just be prepared for minor complications.
