Default Cheapest transportation from Seattle to Vancouver

We've found a cruise that we're wanting to take in may that leaves from Vancouver. The airfares are so much cheaper to fly into Seattle. So what is my cheapest route to get to Vancouver?

We took the AMTRAK train from Seattle to Vancouver a couple of months ago. We weren't doing it to catch a cruise - but the train station happened to be within walking distance of the cruise lines! Of course, I would still suggest going the day before - or making darn sure you have plenty of time in case the train is late. It was on time for us, but we heard other passengers commenting that it is usually a couple of hours late. Once we got to Vancouver, we did have to wait about a half hour in line to go through their immigration/customs. I think we were the last ones on the train to go through so that's why we had such a long wait.

The easiest way is to use Quick Shuttle.
They go between Sea-Tac and Vancouver in about 5 hrs.
The earliest shuttle leaves at 6:30AM and arrives at Canada place
at 11:10 and ballantyne pier at 11:20.

the link is

I would highly suggest that you arrive a day early and visit Vancouver.
Check to see if the cruiseline has transfers from Seattle to Vancouver(rtn).

Quick Shuttle is the way to go.

Cheapest? Probably Greyhound. Not necessarily the most pleasant, but probably the cheapest!
