    cruise centre very well organised if very busy at times . you can leave you luggage there until 4.45pm for a reasonable charge. there are a few hotels within walking distance and its also on a 5minute walk to the railway station and the sky train out to the airport (very cheap ticket too) lovely area to walk around with plenty of places to eat and drink .Plenty of taxis available too.

    Big port with beautiful scenery
    Canada Place Building and the Port of Vancouver are very clean and in a scenic area of Vancouver. There are many interesting things to see and do within walking distance. Many cruise ships sail from here.

    Can be a very busy place…..
    A busy, busy place with two huge cruise boats in when we visited. The area has been really well developed with restaurants and entertainment. Well worth a walk around and a coffee at one of the cafes in the vicinity.

    Cruise Departure
    This is a well maintained and accessible loading facility for a cruise. There are several choices for food and drink. We have not cruised a lot, but this is the best facility so far. Vancouver is a nice walkable City and a joy to visit.

    Great place
    We went for a wander around this place and spent time watching the supplies being loaded onto one of the cruise ships. The area was extremely busy with people getting on the ships and there are a couple of hotels as well as cafes. The views across the water are beautiful.

    Meeting Place
    This is a place to meet ... either you are doing a cruise or you use it as a meet location. The views are pleasant and one has the option of watching the cruise ships or the water planes coming and going. Can be crazy with people and traffic can also bisy and noisy. Canada place has places to eat but I did not experience any.

    Magical at Christmas Time
    Canada Place at Christmas is magical. From the decorated Christmas trees, red and green sails and light installations it is beautiful in the day time or at night. We also did the Fly Over Canada ride with the Christmas twist and it was so much fun soaring over Canada and the North Pole. Highly recommend at Christmas.

    Perfect area for a walk and a bite and the views!
    Canada Place is a large complex of buildings by the waterfront. It contains quite a few amenities, offices, restaurants, cafes and many other shops. Waterplanes take off from there on tours, and the area is perfect for a walk and enjoying the wonderful panoramic views over the water.

This is the main cruise ship terminal for Vancouver. The architecture is the drawcard, with the five distinctive white sails making it a recognisable landmark around the world. The area is rich in cultural and historical significance and well worth a wander.

Recently spent a few days with friends in Vancouver. Amongst many other activities, we spent a few hours at Canada Place and found a great Irish Pub to have a couple of drinks and lunch!
Not sure of the pubs name but the seafood chowder I ordered for lunch would be as good a chowder dish you could get anywhere!
There was a large cruise ship in port at the time and it was fascinating to watch them loading up luggage and stores as I believe it was due ti sail a few hours after our visit.

parking was reasonable for the 8 days that we stayed there. the parking lot was clean and because of the presence of police I know that our car would be safe for the week. P.S. it was 440.00 for the 8 days and I found that to be reasonable for the parking and security of my vehicle.

Nothing much there. If you're taking a cruise, then this is the place to go. The only other thing there is Fly Over Canada, which I would highly discourage you from spending your hard earned money on. Poor production, boring and way, way overpriced.

I spent a couple hours walking around this beautiful attraction today. I could admire its highlights and I will rent a bike to discover what comes alongside the bike path.
