You just beat me to it Twang 😁... was going to post this link as well.

The first port ever in North america for Ovation,,, I believe this is the exact same pier that was due for the expansion anyways, I assume the ship perhaps has to embark/disembark from just front of the ship rather than having 2 options this morning. She's docked at pier A.

Best webcam for the Lion's Gate Bridge in Vancouver I could find is here:

Not live video but there is a "replay the day" feature.  Might be able to catch Ovation passing under the bridge tonight.

 

Try this... there's not anything I know of regarding the bridge passage, however here's the port webcam.

Trying to decide the best spot to capture it from.  Any suggestions?

 

Hey twangster.... if you see this post in time, I feel the position afforded to you at the Brockton Point Lighthouse (circled in red below) might be your best bet. While it's not the bird's eye view as Prospect Point gives you, it allows you to watch Ovation as she passes you and slows to position herself for Canada Place.

 

From a distance you'll see Ovation come under the bridge... I suspect you have a great zoom lense? You can then watch her pass very close to you, and then on to Canada Place. If you're at Prospect Point, Ovation disappears as soon as she gets under the bridge

Maybe one of these years RCI will harmonize the cabin categories across the Quantum class.

This is going to be an AWESOME cruise! 😁

 

Can't wait to follow along. Makes our 440 days until our Alaska cruise out of VC not seem so far away. We plan to fly in a couple days before the cruise to explore as well. Have a GREAT cruise!
