One word of caution! If you take one of the DL/WDW/DCL wheeled duffel bags with you and have it as checked luggage on the train, make sure the one you pick up is YOURS!!! If there are numerous cruisers on the train, there can be numerous bags looking very similar! You don't want to spend part of the first day tracking down your bag.......

We just bought new luggage (High Sierra) that is bright orange with gray and black trim. Hoping it will stand out in the crowd of luggage

Be careful....I had a wheeled High Sierra Duffel that ripped the first use out. the handles on the front weren't well secured to the top/front of the bag and ripped a hole in the case when the handle pulled off. In comparing their construction to the Eagle Creek case I exchanged it for, I saw where the problem lay. Really look at your case...

So do I! I went home and checked the handles and the stitchery and binding seem pretty intense. I know I'm stuffing them to the weight allowed, so here's hoping they can take it

I tried a search but too many posts come up. Anyone with a quick recommendation for taxi service in Vancouver? We have to get from Amtrak to Pan Pacific. Thanks.

There are taxis lined up right out front. We just grabbed one and went. They can only carry a max of 4 persons so our party of 5 had to take two cabs.

We asked for a mini-van cab and it carried all luggage for 5 of us.

There were 3 of us in a mini van and there was plenty of room for our luggage. Our friends were a family of 4 and their mini van had plenty of room for them and their luggage. The funny thing was, they left before us and got to the same hotel after us. Our driver took the short route and drove fast.
After the cruise the 3 of us took a cab to the airport and we fit in a Prius with our luggage. It was tight, but the driver made it work.

Jeep Wrangler Rental

I apologize if this has already been asked, but i admit i did not read all 115 pages of posts.

We are looking to cruise next September and will be flying into Seattle a couple of days early. we want to rent a Jeep Wrangler and drop it off in Vancouver - but cant seem to find a rental agency that offers this specific vehicle with these pick up and drop off locations.

i was thinking that being this area is known for its "outdoorsiness" that this wouldn't be a problem. any locals know anywhere i could check?
