When we did a B2B on RCI in 08 ,we didn't have to get off the ship. If you did get off then you had to wait for embarkation before boarding. This May (2010) we did a B2B2B
from LA to Alaska via Vancouver. We had to go thru US customs in Van before leaving for Alaska . We where escorted off the ship and thru US customs (20 minutes) .
