    Cruise Departure
    This is a well maintained and accessible loading facility for a cruise. There are several choices for food and drink. We have not cruised a lot, but this is the best facility so far. Vancouver is a nice walkable City and a joy to visit.

    Great place
    We went for a wander around this place and spent time watching the supplies being loaded onto one of the cruise ships. The area was extremely busy with people getting on the ships and there are a couple of hotels as well as cafes. The views across the water are beautiful.

    Meeting Place
    This is a place to meet ... either you are doing a cruise or you use it as a meet location. The views are pleasant and one has the option of watching the cruise ships or the water planes coming and going. Can be crazy with people and traffic can also bisy and noisy. Canada place has places to eat but I did not experience any.

    Magical at Christmas Time
    Canada Place at Christmas is magical. From the decorated Christmas trees, red and green sails and light installations it is beautiful in the day time or at night. We also did the Fly Over Canada ride with the Christmas twist and it was so much fun soaring over Canada and the North Pole. Highly recommend at Christmas.

    Perfect area for a walk and a bite and the views!
    Canada Place is a large complex of buildings by the waterfront. It contains quite a few amenities, offices, restaurants, cafes and many other shops. Waterplanes take off from there on tours, and the area is perfect for a walk and enjoying the wonderful panoramic views over the water.

    Nice area to wander around for views
    Nice area to wander around on the harbour. Good views . There was a passenger liner in when we were there so could not walk all the way round. The shoreline walk on the left is a better walk with lots of bars and restaurants . So Canada Place is your starting point for a visit to the Harbour.

This is a free place to visit and we visited while waiting for the FlyOver Canada to open. We had no idea that the port was that large.

The Port of Vancouver Discovery Centre is a great place to learn about the port, and engage in the stories and ideas that have shaped our port city.

Learn about: early port development, trade, innovation and shipbuilding; harbor operations today; working on the waterfront; environmental programs; facts and statistics

Features interactive touchscreens, featuring animated graphics and informative videos; historical artifacts and ship models; west-facing views of Vancouver harbor
access to the Canada Place promenade

It was a great experience.

The views are great. As a place to promenade while waiting to board a cruise ship, it's nice enough. The former Olympic torch now looks out of place on a sunny day. However, this day it was also a place where a very noisy demonstration was taking place, and it made it feel threatening. I was anxious to leave the promenade.

In all, it's a gathering place - whether yours or someone else's.

Great place to go and look back at the city and along the waterfront. Unique design makes it a great place for pictures. Can be very busy in the summer with up to three large cruise ships in port, but worth the walk around. Even a good spot at the end to look over to the North Shore and relax for a bit! It is part of the Seawall walk as well and a good spot to start your jog.

Nothing much there. If you're taking a cruise, then this is the place to go. The only other thing there is Fly Over Canada, which I would highly discourage you from spending your hard earned money on. Poor production, boring and way, way overpriced.

cruise centre very well organised if very busy at times . you can leave you luggage there until 4.45pm for a reasonable charge. there are a few hotels within walking distance and its also on a 5minute walk to the railway station and the sky train out to the airport (very cheap ticket too) lovely area to walk around with plenty of places to eat and drink .Plenty of taxis available too.

Fly over Canada at Canada Place is a must-do - in fact we've gone on each of our three visits to Vancouver, usually more than once. The intro before going on the 'flight' needs updating, but it's still a fantastic experience. Highly recommend it.

When in Vancouver, spend a few hours strolling around Canada Place. Cruise Terminal, Conference Centre, Pan Pacific and Fairmont hotels, free courtesy buses to Capilano Suspension Bridge Park and Grouse Mountain, hop on and hop off busstop. terminus for Skytrain metro, Seaplane port, shops and bars galore, footpath and cycle way to Stanley Park buskers in the evening. A tourist delight.
