Vancouver
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
A little biased here but Vancouver is a magnificent port with the beautiful terminal and the views from the ship and the walks available right into Stanley Park just off the ship. But it's our hometown more or less. Wonderful to just get on the ship and not have to fly anywhere. Unfortunate part of the port area is if you walk into Gastown you are assailed by beggars that really can be difficult for tourists. Places worth seeing if you have the time and the weather is good - Capilano Canyon, Grouse Mountain, Whistler, Victoria

Well worth seeing the Mendanhall Glacier and also a city tour as part of it. Interesting tour guide, very knowledgable first nations driver Tkliket(think that's how the bands name is)

Enjoyed this as it was part of the "package" but wouldn't go out of my way for it. The show was fun, the town was interesting but the salmon bake was just so so.

Again this was part of the whole package tour thing. Interesting touring the saloon and hearing its history - don't forget to have some dollar bills to tuck into the ladies top as you leave!

Great look back in time on this narrow gauge railroad. My husband had this picked as a highlight and it was. You could probably book in independantly easily enough

It was raining on this port day so we spent our time walking the very interesting stilted town - too bad about the rain. Only stayed on shore for half the day. Would have stayed longer had the weather been better.
