Hello. I would like to watch a cruise ship arrive in Victoria. The arrival time on the itinerary is 8:00 am. What is the likely time range for actual arrival? Thanks.

It depends on where the ship is sailing from. If the previous port is close by, it could be arrive in the VERY early morning hours. The arrival time listed in the itinerary is usually when passengers can start getting off the ship (if immigration officials clear the ship in a timely manner) so watching the actual arrival at the pier will be at least 20-60 minutes before that...
