Let me start by saying I was not there on a cruise day. It was a fun spot with a view and good scenic vistas along the boardwalk. There were some interactive things to do for visitors, but not much. It's quite a walk to the end of the pier and remember you have to walk back :-). The view... More

We went here both as tourists and to board our cruise ship. It's a nice area to watch the sea planes land and take off, and to watch the cruise ships depart. Other than a few restaurants, souvenir shop it also has the 'Fly Over Canada' attraction which is great (fee involved). It is also the place to buy tickets... More

You may get an ok view and it was nice to see the hydroplanes taking off. A good part of the area is a commercial port so the view is just ok unless you look very far and not at what is close by. In any case, it is a convenient place to walk along.

The most HECTIC port to embark from! I've been on Cruises all over the world, and even though I love Vancouver, I hate their port. Princess Cruises departs from Canada Place for their Alaska bound cruises. I was here in July and it was chaotic. I figured it was peak season so I gave this venue some slack and didn't... More

While Canada Place is an architectural beauty, there's not much there besides a hotel and some restaurants. Only 2 cruise ships can dock at any one time, all others are regulated to the old docks a few blocks away. It's worth seeing, but far from a must see.

This is a beautiful place to stroll around the waterfront. There were several plaques around the sidewalks telling about the history of the area that were very informative. We also embarked on our Princess cruise line ship to Alaska here and they were very quick and efficient in processing us and getting us on board.

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
