If your are leaving your cruise ship & have arranged transportation - bus, transfer, etc. I guess it might be OK. But boy it's a looooooong walk toting luggage if you are going to public transportation. and it looked like a looooooong wait if you wanted a Cab too. You would think with such a huge station built to accommodate... More

Beautiful place, view of the port, north Vancouver mountains is breathtaking...enjoyed watching loading a cruise ship for next trip with tons of stuffs, something new never seen before. There is a small underground shopping mall. Great tourist location where you can take very memorable pictures, and a hub for all sightseeing /hop on hop off tour busses.

We arrived by regular bus from Victoria to join the ship for a cruise to Alaska. There were 3 other cruise ships at the terminus besides our. All theses ships carried over 1500 people. We all had to go through security. We all had to go through U.S. customs. We all had to register at our own cruise ship. We... More

We enjoyed wandering around and seeing the waterfront and the different provinces and cities in the tiles. We were too late to go inside, but maybe next time.

Nice to send a couple of hours walking around the waterfront and see cruise ships entering and leaving the bay, as well as sea planes landing and taking off.

Taking the BC Ferry from the mainland, across the Straits of Georgia to Departure Bay, we discovered beautiful coves with tidal pools full of colorful sea life. As we hopped rock to rock the next pool was more beautiful than the last.

took a walk along Canada Place - not much to see or do (unless like us you happen to arrive at same time as an Animation Convention then lots of weirdly dressed people milling around), but wonderful view across to Stanley Park and North Vancouver. Enjoyed looking at Cruise Ships and watching sea planes land and take off on river.

Canada Place in Vancouver was a great port to sail out of. The speed of getting us through immigration and check in was a breeze. We arrived early (12 noon) and moved quickly through the process and was on the boat and dining by 12:30PM. Others we spoke to arrived later in the afternoon and they had quite a delay... More
