Puget Sound Wine Weekend in Vancouver + Overnight Cruise

Canada Place Cruise Ship Terminal

We just got back from the May Overnight cruise and it was so much fun, we have to go back, this time on the Holland Amsterdam. Great news for those who missed it and those who want to go again. This time we're making a weekend of it, going up Friday afternoon or Saturday morning. Trips like these are so much fun to do as a Meetup because even if you don't know anyone you actually do, through Meetup! We had 50 Meetup friends on the cruise, felt like it was our ship. ~Claudette REQUIRED TRAVEL DOCUMENTS A passport, enhanced driver's license or birth certificate with a regular driver's license is required. Global Entry and Nexus accepted. On our May Overnight Party Cruise we had so much to do. In addition to the great food and drinks, there was the spa, hot tubs, pool, great views, art work, 3 different types of music venue, parties, theatrical performances, dancing, gambling, movies and I'm sure I'm missing a few.
