We woke very early as we were docking at 5am and had to be at our disembarkation lounge at 7am. We had our last breakfast up in the Windjammer buffet on deck 11 and then returned to our cabins to gather our carry-on luggage. We were off the ship, on the bus and on our way by 7.15am. The bus trip to Anchorage was scenic, reminiscent of Scotland at times. Anchorage marked the northernmost part of our trip, around 61 degrees north of the equator. We arrived at the airport around 10 am for our 3pm flight. D’oh. We couldn’t check in our luggage until midday so we had a coffee and sat around.
The flight was smooth and uneventful, just over 3 hours down to Vancouver. I made the mistake of starting to watch a movie too late and missed the final 20 minutes of Star Trek into Darkness. Bugger! Our next flight is also on Air Canada, hopefully they have it too.
We arrived in Vancouver around 7.15 pm. We were stopped briefly at immigration again but allowed to pass after around 10 minutes or so. We caught a taxi to the hotel and checked in at L’Hermitage Hotel. Rooms are comfortable and the hotel is well located just a short walk to Gas Town tourist precinct. We went over the road for a late light dinner and a glass of wine and retired back to the room for the night.
