Take a cruise from Vancouver to Alaska . Over 100,000 of people come to Vancouver every year to take an Alaska cruise from Vancouver during the season which usually runs from May to the second or third week of September.

Besides Vancouver being the host of Winter 2010 and being constantly vote in the top 10 places to live in the world (we think it is #1) and with all the natural beauty of our mountains and parks like Stanley Park and many other things to do while they are here that many go home after their trip and think about moving to Vancouver.

Cruise To Alaska From Vancouver

The trip is usually 10 days as the ships make their way up the “inside passage” between Vancouver and Vancouver Island then up into the Queen Charlotte Islands and finally reaching Alaska.

The voyages have become so popular that many other cities have become ports of call along the way such as Victoria and Nanaimo which are both on Vancouver Island and there is another port being built on the northern tip of the island in a town called Campbell River and they will also host day long wilderness trips complete with Native Indian guides.

Cruise From Seattle To Vancouver

This trip is becoming very popular not just for people from Seattle and Vancouver but also from all over the world.
