Vancouver Cruise Guide

Due to its close proximity to Alaska, Vancouver is a major hub for Alaskan sailings by many major cruise lines including Princess, Carnival, Disney, and Holland America. However, there are also many sailings to the Pacific Northwest, the Mexican Riviera, Hawaii, Japan, and more. Before venturing off to see the scenic glaciers of Alaska, or the Islands of Hawaii, Vancouver is a must-see for nature-lovers, adventure seekers, or those looking to experience one of the most culturally diverse cities in North America.

This city is unique for its integration of beautiful nature and greenery with urban city life. You could be strolling through the Granville Island market for local jewelry and handmade Indigenous carvings, and five minutes away you’ll find people paddle boarding or kayaking through False Creek. Go for a bike ride along the Stanley Park Seawall or take a free shuttle bus to the thrilling Capilano Suspension Bridge. Minutes from the cruise terminal are the historical streets of Gastown, home to the ‘Gassy Jack’ statue and steam clock. Throughout the city you’ll find some of the best local and internationally inspired cuisine. Food trucks are scattered all throughout the city, and so are Tim Hortons’, a popular Canadian coffee chain known for it’s donut hole bites, Timbits. Be sure to try out the fresh sushi and ramen, and the many Instagram-worthy food spots.

Vancouver is also known for its large variety of easy to intermediate-level hikes, and skiing and snow activities due to the abundance of mountainous terrains. No matter where you are, you’ll be able to see the mountains, like Grouse, in the distance. For scenic skyline views of the city, take a quick ferry ride to the Lonsdale Quay, or take a train or bus into the city to check out the hip shops and vintage stores along Main Street and Commercial Drive.
