Breathtakingly beautiful Vancouver is the largest city in British Columbia, the third most populous in Canada and our Disney Cruise Line homeport.
Located on a lush peninsula in southwestern British Columbia surrounded by water on 3 sides and situated alongside a picture-perfect, snow-capped mountain range, this world-class city has a stunning skyline.
A bustling metropolis to be certain, Vancouver retains its strong connection to the great outdoors. From more than 200 parks to the century-old Capilano Suspension Bridge spanning the Capilano River, Vancouver seamlessly blends the rural with the urban to create a cityscape unlike any other.
Port Metro Vancouver’s 2014 Alaska cruise season saw more than 812,000 passengers on 243 calls by 29 cruise ships, reflecting Vancouver’s selection as Top Homeport in North America for 2013, by Trip Advisor’s Editors Choice Awards. Predictions for the 2015 cruise season estimate ship call and passenger numbers to be similar to 2014.
