Review summary

We took Quick Shuttle from Washington State to the Cruise Terminal. We past Canadian Immigration on the shuttle at the Port of Entry. The shuttle drops the passengers off on the upper level and the baggage is off loaded on the lower level directly to the ship. On the way to the ship we had go through United States Immigration. We boarded the ship all our luggage were in our cabins. Disembarkation we found our luggage tried to find a five passenger vehicle. The taxi are limited to four passengers. There was over a one hour wait for a van so we had to take two cabs a short distance to the hotel about a mile away.
