MUST Do! This is a great choice post cruise as many ships terminate in Vancouver on the North to South cruises. Vancouver is a lovely and safe city with many fine restaurants and outdoor things to do. On a previous visit we went to Victoria island and would recommend this side trip by ferry. Rent a car, drive it on the ferry and tour the island; great gardens, museums and hotels if you overnight. This time we acted like tourists and bought the all day metro pass which works on the sky train, busses and ferry to N. Vancouver...do that trip as the ride and shops at the ferry terminal are a good experience...especially the "farmers" market with more types of food than you get even in the largest eastern/western cities. This was our second trip to Vancouver and would definitely do again and recommend to a friend......bit on the pricey side so expect that with the U.S. dollar worth less and less each week.
