Trip Report 4D3N Vancouver & Whistler Pre-Cruise

Hello People!,

I would like to thank the people of Canada forum for making it easy to plan my itinerary. During my 4D3N stay in Vancouver, I had done:

1. Breakfast at Granville Island

2. False creek ferries out from Granville Island

3. Biking the seaside route from Yaletown to Stanley Park

4. Ate from a food truck (Japadog)

5. Rent a car and did the Sea-to-sky highway (stops: Shannon Falls, Brandywine Falls, Porteau Cove, Stawamus Chief)

6. Whistler Village

7. Peak to Peak tram ride (visiting both Whistler and Blackcombs mountain)

8. Lynn Canyon

I have since blogged about my trip. Please feel free to visit my blog for tons of pictures and my itinerary. Hope it helps and happy planning!

Accommodation: Century Plaza Hotel and Spa

Tip: Book 6 months prior to visit on expedia. Paid only 140cad(all-inclusive) per night for the executive king suite room (950sq ft). CHEAP!

Visit my blog frequently as I am amidst of posting my Alaskan Cruise visiting Skagway, Ketchikan and Juneau. I feel that it would be useful for those who are on budget.

Thanks for visiting

Wei, Just saw that you added Ketchikan on your blog. Those were very nice photos too. The sky was stunning. Your food pictures look very appetizing also. We're heading to Alaska in about 10 days, so I look forward to your coming posts.
What did you think of DR. Pepper? Did you like the cruise desserts? Some people say they look better than they taste.

Hi deladeb, thanks again for your kind compliments. Dr Pepper tastes like cough syrup initially. But continue to drink it and you will realise it tastes like cola+root beer put together. LOL. It's quite good actually.

Well, it depends on which cruise you are on. I'm on Norwegian Cruise. Well, you get what you pay for. It's edible and it's average. But i wouldnt say the food is fantastic or good. It sure looks better than it taste. However, I have to emphasize that NCL is competitive with their pricing. I paid half for balcony as compared to Princess Cruise/Holland America. The ports are the same btw.

I have just posted Juneau. Do go check it out!
