Thanks, she is recovering nicely, just some nausea which I guess is common with head surgeries. She is wearing SeaBands

We ordered some Canadian dollars through AAA, they came today. We have $200. in a 10, two 20s and three 50s. Mostly for tips and small purchases. Just have to cash in a @20 for some loonies and toonies.

I hadn't thought of needing Canadian Dollars. My plan is to use "plastic" for most of our purchases but tips and small items (drinks, snacks stc) would need a little cash.

One more thing to add to the list ...... thanks Judy!

I had not thought about needing to exchange money either. Only would need it in Vancouver though since all of our ports are US. I think I will not bother. We will just use plastic for parking.

We're spending two and a half days in Vancouver so we'll need some cash. It looks like we'll be riding the light rail and bus system some so maybe I'll get about $50. I will wait a couple of days to look at the exchange rate though. Right now it is close to even dollar for dollar with the Canadian doing a little better but it has been swinging in both directions in recent weeks.

I've read a lot of discussion on the Vancouver thread about needing Canadian dollars. Most say that border city vendors will almost always accept U.S. dollars for payment, though they may not give you the best exchange rate. And they will likely offer change in Canadian dollars.

Gotta have at least a couple Loonies!

Remember! FE sign-up deadline is tomorrow! Don't miss out on the great fun! We have a small group, so not too hard to manage with limited suitcases etc.

(The last FE we did - we had over 60 cabins! Imagine the packing that went into that one...)

Come join the fun!

We are spending Sunday and Monday pre-cruise in Vancouver, therefore we wanted a little cash for the small stuff and will use plastic for everything else. I read on another thread where some people thought it was wrong to expect the people we tip to have to deal with our money. (one was quite rude about it)

We are driving in the morning of the cruise, directly to the port parking. We are leaving directly after the cruise. No tip worries for us, but yes in thinking of that issue a bit of Canadian currency would be good.

Judy where are you all staying? We are at the River Rock Casino & Resort near the airport. It seems like a long way but it has a station for the light rail line that goes directly to the port.

We are staying at the Airport La Quinta. We never stayed at one before but was recommended by mellers on another thread. She said it was a good location. She has stayed there before and said it is clean and safe.

I don't know about that one but I like La Quinta. We used them a lot in Texas.

14 cabins total.

We are still missing a couple of cabin numbers, but I'm guessing those are GTYs that will find out soon when all the docs arrive. As we get those, I'll post again. And since the ship is sold out, I don't expect anyone will be upgrading at the Port. So we should be good to go!

Can't wait to see you all around the halls next month!!!
