Default Alaskan cruise

Family of 5 going to Alaska in June. First timers. Flying from Calif to Vancouver.Going on Infinity. It's scheduled to leave port at 5:45pm. How much time should I allow to get bags-go thru immigration and get to port?

With flight delays being so common these days, I would plan to be in Vancouver no later than noon. That way, if your flight is delayed by a few hours you'll still make it.

Better yet, fly to Vancouver a day early and enjoy the sights and dinner in this great city. Then you can board your ship relaxed and ready for an incredible vacation!

When are you sailing? We are on the 6/15 sailing and looking forward to it.
You will have a great time.

Ask your travel agent for specific times, but immigration/check-in normally start at noon. The longest lines will be at that time...I usually arrive around 2:00, with time to relax before sailing.

When you arrive at the pier, your bags will be taken curbside and be taken separately to your cabin. Celebrity's check-in is normally around 15-25 minutes breeze right through without waiting.
