Someone told me that they mailed everything they bought in Alaska to themslelves because their cruise ended in Vancouver and customs are a hassel and that way they had nothing to declare. What do you think?
We also had no problem going through customs in Vancouver. When you are checking in at the airport, they have you go through an area where you can buy more stuff before you let them take your luggage, some good deals there too. I wouldn't bother mailing your stuff, its about the same as when you are in the Caribbean, you just have to declare what you've bought, no big deal.
