    We've booked an Alaska cruise for next summer, with pre-cruise package at Fairmont Vancouver hotel. We can walk to the cruise terminal, but we're wondering whether our luggage will be picked up at the hotel, or do we take it with us as we walk?

    Welcome to planDisney Leslie!

    I am so envious of your Alaskan Cruise plans! It is an amazing experience starting with a stay in Vancouver. This is such a great city! Plan time to stroll or bike Stanley Park, then hop on a bus to conquer the Capilano Suspension Bridge. So much adventure before even stepping foot on the beautiful Disney Wonder.

    You will want to check with your specific hotel about the luggage service, as this will be a service provided by the hotel. When I was in Vancouver, the hotel I stayed at actually came to my room to retrieve my luggage and deliver to the cruise terminal, but each hotel will handle this differently. Many hotels are within walking distance, so hopefully you are staying close to Canada Place. 

    When packing for Alaska, be ready for all kinds of weather. Even if the days are on the warmer side, it definitely cools down as the evening approaches. Dressing in layers is always a good idea. I found guests dressed much more casually on the Alaskan itinerary, so jeans, sweaters, and hoodies will be perfect for most of your cruise. You may want to bring something a bit dressier if planning on Palo for brunch or dinner. 

    Wishing you the most magical of cruises as you sail to the beautiful state of Alaska! Bon Voyage!

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
