|Pre-Cruise: Vancouver, BC|
We were up early again this morning to catch our train (7:40 AM Amtrak Cascades) to Vancouver, BC. Its a beautiful four-hour trip that mostly hugs the coast line. We purchased business class tickets, so that got us big plush seats plus an electrical outlet at every row and free wireless internet access. We all had our laptops on, plus we were taking pictures as we could. A lot of them didn't turn out too well though, due to the motion of the train. The food in the cafe was also very good.
Upon arrival in Vancouver we taxied to our hotel (the Renaissance Harbourside), a few blocks from the cruise terminal (Canada Place). It was Canada day so we walked around the port for a while checking out the booths and displays. The torches that were built for the 2010 Winter Olympics were also lit to mark the occasion.
