B2B in Vancouver

I haven't been following the sailings enough to know if there would have been an opportunity to do a B2b where the middle of the trip would be in Vancouver, but I am hoping maybe so.

If anyone has done this, sailed and then stayed on the ship in Vancouver, I would like to hear what your experience was like.

We have done a B2B out of Florida, but we didn't have to deal with customs, just last off the ship, down the escalator, and then back up the other escalator into the terminal again. I am thinking it might be a bit different in Vancouver.

Where would your first cruise start and your second cruise end?

If you are talking about taking the west coast cruise from San Diego or LA to Vancouver and then do a cruise to Alaska from Vancouver, I remember people who were booked to do those as B2B last year being notified they could not do so and had to choose which cruise they wanted to take. There are custom rules involved.

That was only for the 2011 season. The B2B that year started in LA and ended in Seattle. And it's against the PVSA for a cruiseship to transport a passenger from one US city to a different US city without a stop in a distant foreign port. The closest distant foreign port on that itinerary is over 5 days away.

The 2013/2014 cruises will be doable. 2013 B2B LA-Van & Van-Van; 2014 B2B San Diego-Van & Van-Van.

Actually the cruise you are mentioning was done in 2012 not 2011. The 2011 AK cruises started in Vancouver, the 2012 AK cruises started in Seattle.

Also, the last repo cruises of the '13 and '14 seasons are doable as B2B's.

You're right It's still too early in the "new" year, I forget what year it is.

As I recall, DCL booked guests on the 2012 northbound B2B (L.A.-Seattle), then learned it was in violation of some maritime act. To get around it, DCL made all B2B passengers check out of their cabins after the first segment, leave the ship, then check in for the second segment in a different cabin.

Apparently that did not satisfy the authorities, since guests were not ashore for the required number of hours to meet the act. I don't recall if DCL was fined, or was warned of hefty fines if it happened again.

After learning that the northbound B2B did not comply, DCL contacted the guests on the 2012 southbound B2B (Seattle-L.A.) saying they could take either one of those cruises, but not both. DCL gave a full refund for the canceled cruise, and a discount off the cruise taken.

We are doing the Los Angeles to Vancouver Repo and then the first Alaska cruise of the season this year. The problem last year was that the first Alaska cruise started in Vancover, but ended in Seattle. So the back to back cruisers went from one US port to another without stopping at a distant foreign port, which is not allowed.
