Our offices are located in downtown Vancouver at #900 - 1066 West Hastings Street where we are literally a block from Canada Place Pier where most cruise ships to Alaska arrive and depart daily during the Alaska cruise season from May to September.  While Alaska remains our specialty, we do book our international clients on cruises to worldwide destinations, such as the Caribbean, Europe, Mexico, and Asia.

Terms & Conditions
It's good to be home, but we had a wonderful time exploring Alaska . . . & CruiseShipCenters are acting as intermediary and agent for suppliers ("principals" identified on the travel order/receipt) in selling services, or in accepting reservations for services which are not directly supplied by this agency (such as cruises, air carriage, hotel accommodations, ground transportation, meals, tours, etc.).  This agency, therefore, shall not be responsible for breach of contract or any intentional or careless actions or omissions on the part of such suppliers, which results in any loss, damage, delay, or injury to you or your travel companions or group members.  Unless the term "Guaranteed" is specifically stated in writing on your ticket, invoice, or reservation itinerary, we do not guarantee any of such suppliers' rates, bookings, or reservation.  Agents shall not be responsible for any injuries, damages, or losses caused to any traveller in connection with terrorist activities, social or labor unrest, mechanical or construction difficulties, diseases, local laws, climatic conditions, abnormal conditions or developments, or any other actions, omissions, or conditions outside the agent's control.  By embarking upon his/her travel, the traveller(s) voluntarily assume(s) all risks involved with such travel, whether expected or unexpected.  Traveller is hereby warned of such risks, and is advised to obtain appropriate insurance coverage against them.  Your retention of tickets, reservations, or bookings after issuance shall constitute a consent to the above, and an agreement on your part to convey the contents hereto to your travel companions or group members.

Your advice and skill in organizing the entire package was flawless and that made the experience that much better.
Cancellation Policy & CruiseShipCenters will charge a cancellation fee of $100.00 per cabin/booking on all cruise travel or $100.00 for on all air or other travel arrangements.  This fee is used to cover our administration costs in processing the cancellation and is in addition to any cancellation penalties charged by the supplier (cruise line, airline carrier or any other travel company).  If the cancellation is due to a compassionate reason, we may offer a cruise credit certificate in the amount of the $100.00 cancellation fee, good towards a future re-booking.
