We actually didn't spend any time in Vancouver this time, we went directly to the ship. However, we have visited several times in the past and love this port. It is a beautiful city, offering so much to do and see. I suggest, public transportation (bus service) for getting around. Don't miss Stanley Park, Lions Gate Bridge, China Town, Gas Light District.

Delightful little town. So picturesque. Just fun to walk around and explore. You might be bored if you don't go on an excursion, but I enjoyed just going through the shops and taking photos.

One of my favorite ports. It has a rugged wild west flavor. The train to the top of White Pass is a must do. It is so scenic.

A lovely port. You can choose many things to do and see here. The famous Mendenhall Glacier will not disappoint. A city shuttle will take you out there for a reasonable price. Don't forget your National Park Pass, if you have one. It will save you the entrance fee to the visitor center. You can view the glacier and hike around for free.

This was our first time to visit this port. It is always nice to see a new one. The cannery museum was interesting, and the beach walk and nature trail walk was very nice, and free. They had a bonfire burning on the beach with benches around it to relax on. There was a shuttle service into the town of Hoonah. I thought $8 was a bit much for the 4 mile round trip. But it is a small, mostly Native Alaskan community, and I suppose it was a way to supplement income for them. There really wasn't much to see in the town. The bay that the ship anchored in was nice. We had to tender in, and it was handled well. There were whales visible in the bay.

This port was also a first for us. We disembarked the ship here and joined our 7 day land tour. The town itself is nothing special, but the Resurrection Bay Cruise is awesome. We saw so much wildlife and beautiful scenery. It had a delicious salmon lunch on an island included, with an optional crab leg add on for a reasonable price of $7. It was well worth it.
