About Vancouver

Vancouver is a vibrant city with a friendly atmosphere and plenty of things for people from all walks of life to see and do – a perfect destination for a luxury cruise.

In terms of climate, it’s not quite the Arctic conditions many people associate with Canada – average temperatures drop to around 6 degrees celsius in winter, while summer temperatures average around 22 degrees. As such it’s an ideal place to visit at any time of the year.

Depending on what time of year you arrive, you might want to check out one of the city’s many beaches. Another popular highlight for many visitors is the Vancouver Aquarium in Stanley Park, where you can see beluga and orca whales. You can hike through a forest, ski and snowboard on local mountains, or dine in some truly fantastic restaurants. Simply put, it’s a truly diverse city.
