Default Seattle to Vancouver-Train?

My parents and I are taking Summit Northbound Aug. 29, 2003 -- our first Alaska cruise. My dad's a train enthusiast and I read in a review somewhere that it is fun to fly in to Seattle the day before and take the train in to Vancouver. Has anyone done this?

Default Re: Seattle to Vancouver-Train?

We took the Amtrak Cascades back to Seattle from Vancouver in July. It was a very nice relaxing (and beautiful) trip! I believe it leaves Seattle only at 7:30AM and the return trip is 7PM from Vancouver. It's about a 3-3.5 hr ride, depending on how quickly U.S. Customs and Canadian Immigration are. We upgraded to "Business Class" for about $11 more and it was worth it. Bigger seats, less of them, real close to the bar/dining car, etc. It's a great way to travel between the two cities. Unfortunately, the train station in Vancouver is not in the nicest area, but there are pleny of cabs waiting. Try it!

Only one train per day- leaves downtown Seattle early morning- $20+ cab from Seatac and arrives downtown Vancouver before noon, less than $10 cab to Canada Place. One train returning leaving about 6pm
