Default flight out of Vancouver

When leaving the cruise in Vancouver, is it possible to make an 11:00 A.M. flight? I know the drive is long from the terminal.

Thanks,
Kathy

Possible? Yes.

This is about the earliest I would even think of booking a flight out of Vancouver. Make sure you go to Guest Relations when you are on board and inform them you have an early flight and need to be one of the first people off the ship. If there is a self disembarkation option then do that.

If the ship is late getting into Vancouver or there is a problem with customs and Immigration than you will not make the flight. You are taking a gamble.

Once off the ship get a cab to the airport. Do not do a cruise line transfer. With a transfer you will need to wait until the bus is full before you leave.

If there is a later flight then take that one, otherwise prepare for a hectic morning.

Take care,
Mike

Quicker than a cab is actually our Sky Train if you can manage your luggage for about two blocks. Otherwise definitely take a cab. Princess changed their recommendation this year to anytime after 10:30 am

What is your date? we have two weekends a year that are nuts at Canada Place. If it's late May or September I'd take a later flight.

It is in Sept, so I will just take an afternoon flight. I was just trying to get home before 11:00 P.M.

Thanks for the replies

I haven't seen the 2013 schedule yet, so not sure if you're travelling the weekend from hell. But there is always on in September. If you're a weekday, you're probably ok.
