    Can you tell me what time the Vancouver terminal opened on cruise day? I want to get as much time as possible on the ship. Thanks so much!

    Hi, Janine!

    Typically, check-in registration opens around 11 a.m. with embarkation starting around 1 p.m.  However, with as much as there is in Vancouver, I would encourage you to spend half a day in and around the beautiful area surrounding the Port Metro Vancouver terminal.  We visited Stanley Park and the Lions Gate Bridge and then did a little shopping in Gastown -- which provides some great views of the ship.

    We arrived on the ship just in time to throw our things in our stateroom and eat a bite of lunch at Beach Blanket Buffet.  We had time to walk around the ship; make a reservation (or two) at Palo and the Vista Spa; and pick up the kids' Mickey Bands at the Oceaneer's Club before heading up to the Sail Away deck party. There is so much to do and see on board, but you will have a few days at sea to explore.  Make sure you get the most out of the ports -- including the home port of Vancouver.

    Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
