When I was a young man, I got myself into a little trouble. I am not a felon but CA has some restrictions that concern me.
I have two misdamenor charges one is a 13+ year old DUI and the other is a discharging a weapon on the beach which is even older.

My own government has not held these old charges against me. I am in fact a firearms dealer and have to maintain a very clean record or risk loosing my license. I am afraid if I travel to CA I may be turned around at the border checkpoint (airport). I won't even check the ticket price untill I know I am cleared.

I want to make sure I have this behind me but I cannot seem to get the CA consolate to acknowledge my emails requests for information.

I really only want to cruise out of Vancouver.

Would any of our Canadian members have any sugestions?
Any Americans here ever need to get a pass from the Canadian gonvernment?

Can you get a pardon for the offenses that occurred when you are a minor?
Because you where a minor your records are probably sealed meaning that Canada or anyone can use them .
If you can get a US Passport (required for cruises from Vancouver) then you probably won't have a problem.
