So, do we think that the shows will be on the same nights as they are for the 7-night Caribbean cruises, or will we just have no idea until the first Alaskan cruise sails? I can make Flounder's reservations starting in late February, so it would be nice to know by then.

I would assume for the most part the three big shows will be all while at sea.

So have most of you booked your hotel yet? I'm trying to decide..... We already have our airfare and will be flying in on the (May) 29th- 2 days before our cruise. There are 7 of us; so I really don't want to spend a lot on the hotel keeping in mind we will need two rooms. I'm hoping to get rooms for under $150 each- preferably closer to $100. Two rooms, two nights- that is still $600!
We are planning to do the suspension bridge and the sea wall....... What are yall's plans?
And I'm also wondering what kind of eateries there are (keeping in mind we plan to stay near the cruise terminal).... I have 5 kids and since I know we will be eating a ridiculous amount on the cruise I just really want to go with some kid friendly and cheap places- what is there in the way of fast food? Subway? McDonalds? And I'd like to do one nicer meal that will suit the kids, but maybe something that is "local"... Any ideas?
TIA!

Has anyone had any luck with Coal Harbor? It may be a new hotel so maybe no one has heard of it...I am not sure, but it is fairly close to the harbor and a great price.

Sorry if this has been covered earlier in this thread, but if we arrive in Vancouver at 9 something am, how long will it take us to get through customs and then get to the port? There is only one am flight to Vancouver from LAX...

There are lots of places to eat in the area. McDonald's, Subway, Tim Horton's etc. One nice family place is in Gastown - Old Spaghetti Factory.

Can you go the night before? I think most people will vouch that for sanity's sake that is the best thing to do.

I am assuming that you mean the Coast Coal Harbor Hotel. I've been looking at that one. They have a "pay ahead" rate of $148/nt. You have to book and pay in full at least 14 days in advance. That's significantly less than their regular rate. Looks like a nice place and close to the harbor and port. It is a new hotel from what I've read -opened for the Olympics.

Thanks for sharing the advance rate price, I think I'm going to go check that one out....

Has anyone stayed at the Holiday Inn Express? I'm seriously considering booking it! We have stayed at other Holiday Inn Expresses and always have had a good experience. We are flying in two days before the cruise and need two rooms each night. Their rate is only $122 per room per night- they have free breakfast and free cruise shuttle! Also free self parking. I think I'm sold! But would love to hear from anyone that has stayed here.... Also, it's just over 3 miles from the cruise terminal.

Did you check tripadvisor.com? I actually read Sutton Place is where a lot of actors stay when they are filming in Vancouver. It sounds really nice... I think you got a great deal!

I have not stayed there either, but I am also staying one night there and then 2 nights at pan pacific. I would double check the free cruise shuttle since I only read free shuttle to airport, but could be totally wrong.

Actually what I read said there was a surcharge for the airport shuttle, but the cruise shuttle was free. I may give them a call to double check......
