Hi there! Amtrak has a regular service between Seattle and Vancouver for $28 US each way.
Good luck and happy cruising!
Just be aware that much of the Amtrak regular service between Seattle and Vancouver is on buses not trains, and the wait at the border can, as someone has already posted, seem interminable. Vancouver is a beautiful city and anytime we have been on a cruise that began or ended there, we have arranged to spend a few extra days taking in the attractions. I realize that the price difference to fly from the US to Vancouver can be substantial, it can be worth it, especially if you arrive a day or two before your cruise and don't have a hassle getting to the pier on the day you sail. On our last Alaska cruise we flew from Boston to Anchorage via Salt Lake City, did a landtour into the interior of Alaska (Anchorage, Denali, and Fairbanks) and stayed in Vancouver for a couple of days when the cruise ended. We took a full day excursion to Victoria and on our last day, took Quick Coach to Seattle and flew home.
