Up early as bag pull is 6:30. Down for breakfast & before we know it we’re on the coach heading for the Ferry. Mainland Vancouver here we come. The Ferry ride is relaxing and fairly uneventful. Then the mad dash back to the coach to disembark the Ferry. Our Driver Heather weaves through the traffic to get us to the Cruise liner - she’s ace.
Then the whole boarding process starts. First scan point we’re left standing waiting for our luggage to come through - long story short mums souvenir set off the scanners. Before we knew it all the security personnel that initially wanted to arrest mum were now having photos taken with her. What a turn of events. That check pointy
down we move to the next one.
It’s long and arduous- we find out much later on that the US Customs system went down while two cruise liners full of people are trying to board. Needless to say there are some very cranky people. And if they aren’t cranky they had sore feet.
We make it to our room, it’s not quite ready but we do our best to settle in. Once we unpack cases and put things away it’s more liveable.
Dinner is booked for 5:30 each night, it’s s little early but I’m sure we’ll get used to it.
I’d organised flowers & baileys for mum - at least the room smells fabulous & we have a night cap 🍹Read more
