Our port time arrival was delayed 90 minutes due to a medical emergency earlier on the cruise, but it was short time in this port even had that not happened. This port was not a huge deal to me as I'm local, have seen Victoria many times & even had I not - the health of the passenger who got hurt will always be more important than port time! Kudos to the captain for turning the ship around & getting her the care she needed. The captain extended the time 1/2 hour, so in theory we had from 8:45 til 12 for back on board, with a sailing time of 12:30. In practice though it was 9:40 until we made it off the ship - then another 15 minutes to get to the buses. The line off the ship took forever, they really need to make this a longer port stop or it's basically worthless. By the time we were loaded on the bus ($10 round trip to town & back to the cruise port) it was 10pm. As we got off the bus, the driver then tells us the last shuttle back at 11. What a waste, we really should have stayed on board. So if you are taking the bus in, ask what time the last bus back is BEFORE you buy the ticket! If the driver had volunteered that info I bet 1/2 the customers would have walked back to the ship or taken a taxi. We walked around a bit, took a few pictures & then did a bit of shopping. Advice - as you get off the ship there will be several stores open. If you want to shop, shop first. The last 20 minutes before the last shuttle pick up, half those stores had closed.
