Ballantyne Pier Cruise Ship Terminal

Port of Vancouver

Vancouver - British Columbia - Canada

Vancouver is the terminal for Alaska Cruises. The sight of these massive gaily decorated floating playgrounds either going out or coming back from cruises lasting from less than a week to several weeks in length is an impressive sight. Wherever there is a viewpoint a group of cruise ship watchers accessorized with binoculars and cameras eagerly anticipate their passing by. On a good day up to 3-4 may follow each other within the space of an hour or two. The usual schedule involves an early arrival, change of passengers and a departure by late afternoon on the same day. There is hardly a day between May 1 and mid October without some cruise ship traffic.

These pages will provide information of a visual nature on various aspects related to the cruise ship experience. The primary terminal Canada Place is also the location of the Pan Pacific Hotel and the Vancouver Trade and Convention Center. Somewhat removed (about 1 mile) is the Secondary Terminal, Ballantyne Pier. Images of the cruise ships that operated during the 2001 season as well as a collection from prior years is included. For those that may be interested an overview of the Port of Vancouver shows the various non cruise commercial and industrial activities in Canada's busiest port.
