The Quick Guide to Visiting Vancouver, BC

Vancouver has been on my bucket list for quite awhile, so when my Alaska Seabourn cruise took me from Anchorage to Vancouver, I knew I had to stay a few extra days to explore the city. The last time I was in Vancouver, I was only 4 years old, so I was very excited to experience Vancouver for the first time as an adult. Iโ€™ve seen beautiful photos of Vancouver so much over the last few years on Instagram, so I knew I was in for a great trip! Check out this post for where to stay and what to do in Vancouver.

Ultimate Alaska: Cruising Glaciers and Fjords Onboard the Seabourn Sojourn

Cruising Alaska has always been on my bucket list, so when I was given the opportunity to sail in luxury on the Seabourn Sojourn for the 14-Day Ultimate Alaska Glacier and Fjord Adventure in late June, I snatched it up. The itinerary took us on a two week journey out of Anchorage (Seward) to Vancouver through some of the best spots in Southeast Alaska and the Inside Passage, like Tracy Arm and the Misty Fjords. We were able to do excursions such as a helicopter flight up to a dogsledding camp, kayaking up to a glacier with the Ventures by Seabourn team, and taking my very first seaplane flight over the Misty Fjords. I found that choosing the 14-day Alaska cruise option made for the best itinerary over most 7-day cruise options, and my experience with the weather while sailing in late June and early July was wonderful. I think during the entire time cruising Alaska and Canada, we only had two days of rain, so we were very lucky that the good weather followed us all the way to Vancouver.
