We stayed at the Pan Pacific in Vancouver pre cruise. It is right above the cruise terminal. Lovely hotel. The weather at the end of May was not good. The sun hardly ever shone. Very dreary. But the sites were spectacular. Did a combination of Celebrity and private tours. Varied reviews for both. A whale watching tour through Celebrity was pretty good. We got really lucky and actually saw some breaching. Also if you are going to spend any time in Vancouver, we did the hop on off bus. Got a great tour and then decided where to get off. Hope it’s a great cruise.
