Cruises from Vancouver can take you to amazing destinations but you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to experience the city’s own delights. Relaxed, cultured Vancouver is consistently rated one of the finest cities in the world. Carnival cruises dock directly in downtown, where a thick cluster of crystal skyscrapers is framed by pine-covered mountains. Snack your way through the bounty of British Columbia in a food-filled public market, and meet local artists in their studios. It’s easy to get around artsy Gastown, lush Stanley Park and downtown’s museums — so pencil in plenty of time for wandering the city on any of Carnival’s cruises from Vancouver.
