I would recommend staying downtown. Even if you stay at the airport, you will have to take a cab to the pier. Piers are an easy cab ride from downtown.
Vancouver is such a lovely city and it would be sad to miss out on a bit of sightseeing prior to your cruise. Anywhere in the downtown area would be a good choice to stay, so much to see and do, fabulous restaurants. One of our favorite sushi restaurants is in Vancouver, Shabousen. Stanley Park is must see; right on the water, totem poles, float planes taking off, great city views, mountains, the sea wall. It is a great place to walk or rent bikes. This is a always a highlight of our trips to Van. We will be back again this summer and are looking foward to it!!!
