Delta Suites Hotel to Cruise Pier in Vancouver ?

Recommended Posts

Any tips on the best way to get from the Delta Suites Hotel in Vancouver to The Cruise Pier on day of embarkation ? Nieuw Amsterdam

Is there any time that is less congested than others ?

Thanks in advance for your responses.

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?

Don't believe that hotel provides a shuttle, so your options are a taxi, or walking. Walking is about 500-600 yds, with a short downhill from Hastings Street.

 

When departing Canada Place, we usually get dropped off about 10:45 to 11:00, as most departures have already cleared and the longshoremen are already accepting baggage. The arrivals area is normally very busy around Noon to about 14:00, depending on how many ships are in port.

We walked from the hotel to the pier. Its mostly downhill and takes about 10 minutes.
