Plan on adding $1,000 per person to the cost of your cruise for shore excursions. When you reach Victoria, you have to pay for transportation from the dock into the city which cost $12 round trip. The line for the bus was very long.

Make sure you plan them in advance and read the reviews, it's nearly impossible to do it on board, the office is only open a few hours a day. If you decide at the last minute, the system for booking is low tech and no one is available to help you. The woman in charge of our excursion desk was very curt and rude.
