Ferry from port Hardy to prince rupert

Just about to book the inside passage trip. Don't know whether to book the aurora seats or book a cabin. What is the aurora lounge like? Good viewing spot? Are you able to have a kip on the seats? Cost is £30.00 each person so don't really want to book both.

Also can anyone clarify.......can you catch the ferry from Horeshoe bay (West vancouver) to Nanaimo? as we are staying that side in Vancouver and it would say us traveling to Tsawwassen.

Can we ask what you are doing once you arrive in Prince Rupert?

Sometimes visitors from the UK and Europe, and other places, are not completely aware of how far distances are in BC. When you dock in Prince Rupert, it will be quite late at night - it's a 15 hour ferry ride. You will be a 3 1/2 day drive from Vancouver (locals say they do it in 2 ten-hour days, but it took us 3 1/2 days) or a plane ride to return to the south coast. (However, you may also be taking the train to Jasper. If so, have a wonderful trip. Visitors have spoken very highly about this train trip.)
