Vancouver to Alaska Cruises

For more than 30 years, the Port of Vancouver has been the leading homeport for Alaska cruises, offering passengers more ships and departure dates to choose from than any other port. The Port's two cruise terminals, Canada Place and Ballantyne, are conveniently located and only 30 minutes away from the award winning Vancouver International Airport. Canada Place is located in the city centre, close to shopping, dining, attractions, and Stanley Park. Ballantyne is located east of the city centre and close to Canada Place. The cruise terminals are modern, secure, and world-class.

Some of the most luxurious and largest ships afloat sail from Vancouver to Alaska where passengers experience the natural beauty of the glaciers, mountains, wildlife, and culture of America's last frontier. The ships are operated by premier international cruise lines including: Carnival Cruise Line, Celebrity Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Holland America Line, Norwegian Cruise Line, Princess Cruises, Radisson Seven Seas Cruises, Royal Caribbean International and Silversea Cruises.

Passengers experience two breathtaking destinations for the price of one when they sail from Vancouver, gateway to Alaska.
