Granddaughter enjoyed shore excursions. We older folks had trouble. For Victoria time was cut short. By the time we got off the ship, it was a very long walk to the bus for Burchardt Gardens. We were not told this and my husband has mobility issues. . Also told, only a step up or 2 for bus; it was about 6 or so. (On way back, husband missed a step and sat down and needed help getting up). Waited then still at ship, a long time for no shows. By the time we got there, we only had about a half hour or so. The gardens need several hours and more. We gave up on the Mt. Roberts tramway. Supposedly close to ship. Not close enough for husband. Granddaughter loved it and hiked almost to top. She loved all her excursions in rainforest, ziplining, etc.
Would we go again? We'll have to think about it. 12 days may be too long. BUT we did love being able to go and come back to Los Angeles. And we enjoy the coastal cruises. Haven't give up yet!

Mount Roberts TramwayMy granddaughter ended up being the only one to do this and she loved it. At top she kept climbing. We, her grandparents, found trek from ship too far. It sounded from what we were told, that it would be close, but it wasn't/View All 203 Mount Roberts Tramway Reviews

Butchart GardensThis is usually a great excursion, but with so many delays at ship, a much longer walk to bus than we were told, and bus delays, we only had 30-40 minutes. Barely time to walk thru gates and go back to the bus! The Gardens deserve at least sveral hours if not a day or two.View All 246 Butchart Gardens Reviews
