Cruise tips

San Francisco, California

Just relaxed in San Francisco. Used the Muni Mobile app on our smart phones to buy a $12 all day transit pass. Historic streetcars go right by the ship’s port and take you along the Embarcadero and Market Street. Did the Powell Hyde street car to coffee and had some sourdough (world’s best) at Boudin’s Bakery.

Vancouver (Canada Place), British Columbia

Vancouver is a second home so we just enjoyed being in town. Stayed in the Pan Pacific Hotel right in Canada Place. Expensive but fantastic hotel. Vancouver is a great city, but avoid Gastown and East Hastings. Head south and west.

Ruby Princess

Ruby Princess

As of mid-October 2018 Princess is in the early process of installing Ocean Medallion. They were starting to change out door locks as we disembarked.
