we started the trip by taking the Amtrak train from Seattle to Vancouver. The trip was approximately four hours and we arrived in Vancouver at 11:45. A $15 taxi ride to the cruise terminal.

There were three ships in port this day. The embarkation was very time consuming. We went in checked in and then received our key cards. We were given a number and told to wait until we were called to security. The entire process was about three hours. 

Once onboard we had a great time. The Crown Princess is in good shape overall. This was not the friendliest crew I have sailed with but it was three days, so I can understand. The service was good. 

We ate in the dining room two nights and the food was good service was good. We had anytime dining. We arrived at 5. When we left the was a considerable line to get in the dining room. The last night we went to the Crown Grill. The service was good the food fantastic. 

We were in A615 a balcony cabin. The room was in good shape and our cabin stewardess Ethel was great. 

If you are looking for a relaxing three days I would recommend one of these short coastal trips.

Embarkation and Disembarkation
If you are embarking in Vancouver be prepared to wait. It will take awhile. We were told that if you arrive before 11 it was not too bad.

Get to the cruise port early. To avoid the long wait


The international cafe in the piazza. Great place for a light snack and good coffee.
