Alaska Cruise Vancouver Departures

The Alaska cruise Vancouver departures are a favourite place to begin an Alaskan cruise for many people because there are so many other things to do in Vancouver before and after their cruise.

Alaska Cruise from Vancouver

That can extend the Vancouver vacation’s memories for you and your family long after your Alaska cruise Vancouver!

The Vancouver BC weather (vs. Vancouver Washington 6 hours south of us) is especially good during the cruising season (May – September) with long summer nights to enjoy the star light nights and see some of the best sunsets and sunrises in the world.

There are many flights to Vancouver that land at the Vancouver BC airport where a shuttle bus will usually be arranged by your travel agent which will take you to your downtown Vancouver hotel.

If you want to do your own research you should always be able to find cheap flights to Vancouver as well as cheap flights from Vancouver if you are flexible and can arrange your flights giving you a few days on either side of your Alaska cruise.

Vancouver has so much for you to see not including the fact that we are the hosts of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

Choosing Your Downtown Vancouver Hotel

While there are lots of hotels in Vancouver, it is also said that “cheap hotels & Vancouver don’t exist, but here is a short list of our ”preferred Vancouver hotels” list to look into:

The Vancouver Alaska cruise departures usually depart on Saturday and Sundays and during these “Alaskan cruise rotations” of people coming and going on their Vancouver vacations the Vancouver airport gets pretty busy to say the least!

You’ll be departing on your cruise northward and some cruise lines make stops along the coast of British Columbia to places on Vancouver Island.

Once you begin your Alaska cruise, Vancouver will be one of many of newer ports of call one place that is really beginning to blossom is Campbell River you can find it on a Vancouver Island map and you’ll see it at near the northern tip of the island (and you can expect to see lots of bald eagles who call Campbell River home year round).

Besides the Alaska cruise from Vancouver departures, Victoria, the capital of British Columbia is also becoming popular with the Alaskan cruise lines and cruise critics.

Even though there’s so many things to do in Vancouver, like Stanley Park (Vancouver best attraction) one of our favourite Vancouver day trips is a day trip to Victoria to see all the great sites and things to do in Victoria, you really should try and visit during your Vancouver vacations, you won’t regret it!
