  1. Thank you! We have already booked 2 whale watching excursions on the Alaska cruise part of our holiday. But my husband really likes whales, so I shall also book the Vancouver whale morning. I am sure the BC museums will be interesting. We have loved the museums in Toronto, Quebec and Winnipeg - but this may be much smaller?
  2. Interesting - just looked on the Wild Whales website - much more dated than the snazzy Prince of Whales one, and still only showing rates etc for 2019, whereas PoW has book now online for 2020. So I will probably stay with that, and get round to it soon!
  3. Thank you martincath. I will probably stay with our booking as no guarantees re a roll call on our Silver Muse ship. The reason we will not whale watch from Victoria is that we only have the day there and want to see Butchart Gardens and the Royal BC Museum & Empress Hotel, so we will have the whale watching from Vancouver on a different day (we have 5 nights in Vancouver before our cruise). Interestingly I have not yet booked that. I intend to book with Prince of Whales, but when I looked a few days ago they seem to go only from Granville Island now (another early morning taxi!) and not from Coal Harbour, huh. Maybe they have merged with Wild Whales (which I hadn't heard of)?
  4. Thank you - we will look for a taxi at the Empress if not at the landing station, and ask Guest Services re getting back. I have booked the seaplane already, so we are going whatever the weather! (Assuming it flies?)
  5. Thank you SightCRR, glad you had a good time in London! I am assuming there will be a taxi rank where Harbour Air lands, for us to take to the Gardens? Is there a taxi rank there to get back?
  6. We have booked a return sea-plane trip to Victoria for a day from Vancouver. Aiming to see Butchart gardens there (it's not on our cruise itinerary). I am planning to book, in the next couple of weeks, a whale watching half day from Vancouver (Granville Island) as well as Alaska whale watching, which we have already booked with local providers mentioned in other people's trip reports.
  7. Have just seen in a tour operator's brochure the Ashikaga Flower Park near Tokyo with beautiful wisteria in early May I hope. Am now aiming to spend an extra day in Tokyo before our mid-May cruise to go and see that. I don't want to start our trip until the Golden Week is over to avoid the crowds?
  8. Thank you! Not online onboard as some, but will definitely post trip report when come home.
  9. We go the end of July so are crossing our fingers it will be good!x
  10. Gosh! And were there bears and salmon? Because I understand that if there is a heat wave the salmon don't come - or the bears?
  11. Such a brilliant video! Glad people could sit outside in Alaska and not be cold?

    Thank you for your help - as you say we need to taste it!
  13. Also we are bringing clothes for our Alaska cruise in 2020 for both sunshine in Vancouver and cold rain at the Glaciers and north of Anchorage - so have 2 suitcases between us plus 2 hand luggage for the camera gear! And we still intend to eat in La Terrazza on the formal optional night so my husband doesn't need to bring a tie.
  14. Lovely photos thank you kmerlin14. Great to hear your trip details.
  15. What beautiful weather kmerlin14! Looks like a lovely day. Thank you re the Canadian $, I have noted that!
