    Which airline do you use to fly to Vancouver. We use southwest all the time, but will need to switch airlines since they don't go to Vancouver.

    The only times we've flow to Vancouver were for Alaska cruises (not DCL). We used Alaska Airlines.

    You may want to consider flying into Seattle and taking the bus to Vancouver. This is what I did in 2011 because it was A LOT cheaper. Chicago to Vancouver direct was about double the price of Chicago to Seattle direct. Busses leave the Seattle airport about every 30 minutes and you get dropped off at your hotel in Vancouver. Very comfortable coach with wi-fi.

    We flew Southwest into and out of Seattle and did one-way rentals to Vancouver. The airfare was at least half of the cost to fly directly to Vancouver. The drive was about three hours each way and was easy as can be. :)

    We flew from NC to Vancouver on US Air. It was the same number of miles to Seattle, so that was an easy choice for us. :)

    This is great to know. Do you have any contact info for the bus? Also, how does it work coming back into Seattle?

    Thanks

    How about Amtrak? I understand the Amtrak fare is very reasonable. I wonder where the Amtrak stations in Seattle and Vancouver are? I bet the coach from Seattle's airport to Vancouver is more conveniant.

    We are looking at a 2014 DCL Alaska cruise. We have time to plan.

    OOO good thinking! I have family in Olympia I could visit for a bit before or after. I think we are doing Alaska in 2014! Car or bus across the border is something to think about.
