    Vancouver: Passengers Put More Vacation in their Alaska Vacation

    Vancouver serves as an ideal port to begin or end an Alaskan adventure. As homeport to Alaska through Canada’s majestic Inside Passage, passengers on more than 200 sailings will depart Vancouver to enjoy the splendor of the glaciers, the vast wilderness and fascinating culture of Alaska.

    Ranked as a top city in the Americas: A vibrant and exciting city that is like no other, Vancouver is renowned for its blend of cultures, international cuisine, fabulous festivals, shopping and attractions.

    World-class facilities and operations: The Port’s two cruise terminals, Canada Place and Ballantyne, offer passengers all the modern conveniences and services for a positive and safe cruise experience. Port Metro Vancouver consistently receives high passenger satisfaction survey scores and top marks for user friendliness and luggage handling.

    Easy to get to Vancouver from practically anywhere: Visitors can choose from numerous transportation alternatives including ground, rail and air options from neighboring cities. When in Vancouver the Port’s two terminals are conveniently located, accessible and only 30 minutes from Vancouver International Airport (YVR) by car, taxi, or rapid transit.

    The only Alaskan homeport offering one-way trips through the Inside Passage: Vancouver offers a variety of itineraries, including the choice of round-trips or one-way trips through the scenic Inside Passage. The shorter travel distance to Alaska also allows more time to spend in Alaskan ports.

    Environmental stewardship: Port Metro Vancouver is committed to environmental sustainability and is focused on air quality through emission reduction initiatives like shore power at Canada Place. Shore power allows cruise ships to shut down their diesel engines and connect to a land-based electrical grid. The installation - the first of its kind in Canada and third in the world, at the time - reduces up to 3,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions each year.
