It was a very long day getting from Seattle up to Vancouver, Canada via BoltBus. BoltBus was great and I would highly recommend their services. There were a few lines to get through at the Port of Vancouver but the staff at Celebrity Cruises was great. Once on board I found my way around the ship and we sailed away at 5pm.
Your first day on a cruise is about finding your room, hoping your luggage arrives, and getting the ship figured out. Make sure you find your dining rooms and a few favorite bars. The rest will fall into place as you cruise. Make sure you read your daily activities guide.
