arriving in Vancouver

So Monday morning the cruise ship arrives in Vancouver. I honestly don't remember what we did before we disembarked the ship. I assume we ate breakfast on the buffet. There was a line to get off the ship but not too bad.

I do remember the customs agent gave us the third degree because we mentioned we were St. Louis Blues fans. Yeah probably should have kept our mouths shut, Canadians take their hockey seriously. So after debating hockey with a customs agent, we headed to our hotel, the Pan Pacific.

The hotel was right next to the port, easy to walk to, even with our luggage. Right off the bat I was impressed with Vancouver. Everyone was so helpful and the streets were spotless. Vancouver is the cleanest city I have visited.

Luckily when we checked into the hotel, a room was ready. We were offered an upgrade for a small fee and we took it, so worth it. Our suite had a wonderful view and we were able to watch the Disney Wonder sail into port the next morning from our room.

Notice the bottled water. Best tasting water I have ever had and I am pretty sure it was magic, it stayed cold all day long in my bag.

View from our room. The island off to the left is Stanley Park. Also to the left is where the cruise ships dock.

After relaxing in the room, making a few calls, and checking email, we headed out to explore the city. We had already done research and knew we wanted to visit Grouse Mountain, which is about thirty minutes away. We decided to take a water ferry and then a bus to get to Grouse Mountain, that was the cheapest way with the least amount of time constraints.
