We love Vancouver, our home for many years before we moved to Victoria, BC.
You probably know Vancouver ranks right up with Florence, Rio de Janeiro, Sydney and Vienna as one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
Vancouver also consistently ranks as one of the most “livable” cities in the world, according to The Economist.

Anyway, we got the chance to cruise from Vancouver on the elegant Le Boreal expedition ship to Acapulco (operated by French cruise line, Ponant).
And the sail-away gave us a rare opportunity to see some of the city’s beauty from the vantage point of passengers leaving on a cruise from the Vancouver cruise port.
A highlight was passing underneath the iconic Lions Gate Bridge – it felt like we could almost reach up and touch it!
Don’t miss Vancouver when you sail away!
One reason passengers love the Vancouver cruise port is because ships dock at Canada Place, right in the heart of the city.
If you go to Vancouver for an Alaska cruise, don’t just cruise-and-dash. Be sure to add a few days for sightseeing here. We don’t know how many times we’ve overheard passengers saying they wished they’d known – they would have stayed longer to visit our city.
We’d hate for you to have similar regrets!
