We are planning a cruise to Alaska in hopefully 2014, but if not, 2013. It will be my family of 4 plus my parents. As of now, we will fly directly into Vancouver the night before, even though it is more expensive than Seattle, just to make things easier. We are also thinking of staying at the Pan Pacific right at the port, again just to simplify things. What would be the easiest way to transfer from the Vancouver airport to Pan Pacific or one of the hotels by the port? And, from the port back to airport? We will already be spending so much on the direct flights, that if possible, I would like the transfers to be on cheaper side. I thought that I had over a year to plan for this, but now with the possibility that it is less than a year, I'm slightly frazzled!
