Vancouver: the Amadea at Canada Place

Yes, it’s the end of February, and it’s already cruise-ship season in Vancouver! That says a lot about the relatively temperate winter weather in this part of the world …

The cruise ship “MS Amadea” is docked at the Canada Place cruise ship terminal in Vancouver, Canada. Operated by German-company Phoenix Reisen, the ship is in Vancouver for a couple of days before embarking 27 February on a month-long voyage across the Pacific. Scheduled stops include Seattle, Washington; Astoria, Oregon; and San Francisco, California; before heading out across the “big western pond” to Hawaii. The ship traverses the northern Pacific to Yokohama, Japan with the final destination Osaka and scheduled arrival on 24 March 2013.

The “Amadea” can take on 600 or so passengers with a crew complement of about 250. I get a nice chuckle at how Phoenix Reisen has labeled this cruise as Vom “Wilden Westen” zum Fernen Osten – from the wild west to the far east. You can read the full itinerary in German here.

To the Germans and Europeans who have flown out to Vancouver to join the month-long cruise:

“Willkommen in Vancouver, Kanada!”

    Hmmm… so it’s going from Van to Seattle to Oregon and San Francisco… sounds a lot like the road trip I’m doing in just over a month’s time!! Gosh I miss Vancouver.

      Well, well, Christina … please tell me what your road-trip itinerary is in a month’s time. 🙂 Then again, the Amadea crossed the Pacific to Japan via Hawaii; that would be interesting in a ship full of German-speaking passengers. Fun times for all! 😉
