  1. It is an easy, flat walk if you are so inclined. There may be a shuttle bus available but we walked there faster. 😊 The Aquarium is at Pier 39, even closer than Fisherman's Wharf (see the link in post 2 and zoom in).
  2. ^ All right, finally understood. You are on a one-way from Alaska to Vancouver with no Canadian ports. I checked the Port of Vancouver website, as well as a couple others, and there is no mention of a Nexus/Trusted Traveler kiosk or lane at Canada Place.
  3. OP, it looks like you are on a Princess cruise to Alaska? If so, then you will pre-clear US Customs (as you mentioned above ) in Vancouver, but when you port at a Canadian city prior to the end of your cruise, the ship is cleared there by local authorities. This negates having to go through Canadian Customs in Vancouver. So to answer your question, you won't need to use a Nexus line as there will be no Customs to clear when you disembark. 😊 Have fun.
  4. No, and remember that many of the passengers are at dinner then, either Main Seating, Select Dining, or specialty restaurants. We have never had a problem or much of a wait getting a drink. As do we. 😊
  5. Respectfully, I don't think your reply is for this topic?.... OP is asking how to get to Fisherman's Wharf - airport shuttles don't come into question..
  6. So true. 🀣 I thought I had died and gone to deep fried heaven, that's how good they were. I'm sure some bristle at the thought of them, but I remember them fondly on a day in port when I wasn't expecting much and prepared for anything. 😊
  7. We were there just a few weeks ago and weren't really expecting much from this little port... however, it turned out to be a really fun day. πŸ™‚ Very walkable if you are up for it. We went to Buoy Beer and happened to get a table by the window with a great water view. We chose our beers for our flights and also shared a basket of deep fried cheese curds! Oh my goodness.... there are not enough adjectives for this bounty of delectable cheese-y goodness. It was SOOOOOOOO good. πŸ§€πŸΊ
  8. Oh dear, the first two pages of reviews (most recent) are not very promising... πŸ˜₯
  9. I'm sorry you fell and are hurting. I know how that can quickly turn a vacation on a downward spiral. We were on the cruise before you, and noticed a decline in the service in the MDR. Drinks never received, very slow service, we felt forgotten about. As well, we had problems with OBC given and then taken away, and gift items ordered and paid for yet not delivered. My husband figures he spent at least 1.5 hours of his vacation at Guest Relations. Shame. My husband slipped on the floor (ramp) in the Solarium after exiting the pool. He didn't hit the ground but he was a bit shaken, and after looking at the floor on the ramp I wondered why there weren't measures in place to help with that - adhesive strips (like sandpaper material, maybe) to help with the grip for people with wet feet. I think that is an accident waiting to happen, as well as with the metal ramp on which you experienced your fall. I hope you will feel better very soon. πŸ™
  10. Exactly what I was thinking!! πŸ˜•
  11. Our cabin steward offered us the choice of sparkling wine, or a bottle of red or white. He said to tell him when we wanted it delivered, and he brought it in a bucket of ice with 4 glasses (we were toasting with friends). It was great, easy peasy. 😊
  12. We just returned from Eclipse where we were upgraded to Concierge class. The heavier robes were nice, and we did enjoy the sparkling (or red,or white if you prefer) wine. The concierge called and left a message or two on our phone every day, mostly offering his services and such. We ate a couple of the snacks but otherwise most were left untouched (just didn't appeal to us). Gratuities for this class are also higher; not sure if people know this. 😊
  13. Hi there, We don't have Uber or Lyft in Vancouver so your options are taxi, hotel shuttle (if available) or walking. It looks like it is walkable, five blocks or so if you don't have too much luggage, but a cab would certainly be reasonable. It gets incredibly congested down at the pier and on cruise ship days they often have police directing traffic (just came back in last week - very busy!). Your cab would be able to take you right to the drop off but if it is super busy, you may get frustrated just watching your meter tick higher and higher. Can you walk it? https://www.google.com/maps/place/Delta+Hotels+by+Marriott+Vancouver+Downtown+Suites/@49.2865169,-123.1116499,17.25z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x54867178f593a303:0x5802c31b66203fb7!8m2!3d49.284105!4d-123.1128696
  14. I'm just telling you our experience. I looked it up to make sure it was the same one OP is talking about. Many homeless around, smelled bad. ~shrug~ It was OK, though - we went there twice for things we needed pre-cruise. Good that it is so close to the pier.
