Vancouver Cruise Port

Posted on Sunday, April 15, 2012 |
Vancouver cruises leave from Port Metro Vancouver. It has two terminals, named Canada Place and Ballantyne.  Canada Place is located at 999 Canada Place, and Ballantyne at 655 Centenniel Road. These are both right in downtown Vancouver, making the city easily accessible to cruise passengers. They are both highly regarded for bagagge handling and customer service. Many cruises to Alaska leave from here.

The city of Vancouver is a wonderful place to spend a few days at the beginning or end of your cruise. Its residents pride themselves on the multicultural and eco-friendly nature of their hometown, and it is consistently judged one of the world's most liveable cities. It is also known for its natural beauty, situated between the mountains and the sea.

Stanley Park, bigger even than New York's Central Park, has 200km of walking tracks including 8km of pleasant strolling along the sea wall. It is a true urban oasis and a great spot to visit. The city's Aquarium is another major attraction, which has not only a variety of creatures on display but a funtioning marine research centre. Granville Island, a peninsula in the city centre, is host to great markets, theatres and galleries. Vancouver won't disappoint!
