10 Ports Where Dollars Go Further This Summer

by Donna Heiderstadt | June 23, 2017

Vancouver, Canada

Not only is this beautiful Pacific Northwest city a gateway to Inside Passage cruises to Alaska, but it’s also a great place to spend a few days pre- or post-cruise. And the weakness of the Canadian dollar (about $1.35 Canadian dollars to $1 in early June, or about 10 percent lower than a year ago) means you can eat the city’s incredibly fresh seafood or shop its eclectic boutiques — and be happy when you see the exchanged prices on your credit card bill.
