Default Situation in Vancouver

I just got back from the harbour here in Vancouver. Lots of passengers have made it today and the queue to board ships is very long. They are only allowing a few people at a time into the cruise terminal area. Everyone seemed happy to have made it here though and a lot of people were already on baord by 3:30pm. Volendam and Sun Princess are at Canada Place and Norwegian Wind at Ballantyne. Infinity is sitting out this week, along with Westerdam and Carnival Spirit. Celebrity put all the passengers from Infinity onto Mercury in the end.

This travel advisory has been issued for people flying out of Vancouver aiport:

Passengers travelling out of Vancouver International Airport (YVR)
should please review the following:

Flights at YVR are almost back to normal, however very little else at
the airport is normal.

There are things travellers can do to make the procedure a little
easier:

1.Arrive early - but not TOO early (this adds to the line ups). Arrive
2 hours prior to a domestic flight and 3 hours prior to an
international flight
2.Pack lightly - limit your carry on luggage to one (1) piece. Limit
your electronics
3.Bring patience… we're all in this together. Passengers have been
very understanding so far. The airport community is working 24
hours a day, seven days a week to help get passengers on their
way.

Default Re: Situation in Vancouver

Thank you Susan for your post. My wife, myself and four others will be flying into Vancouver on Sept 29th. We are looking forward to our cruise on the Zaandam. Our neighbors are first time cruisers and this will hopefully not be their last. To bad this could not be under better circumstances for first time cruisers. Being patient is the best attitude.

Y2C I'll post from the Ryndam or Alaska if I can to let you know how long it takes to board at Canada Place. Hope to run into you in a week or so if possible.
Papad.
