Good day, it was very disappointing with this port of call as the ship does not arrive till 7PM and leave at 11PM. This is very bad as this is the dinner time on the ship and as this is the last night on the ship, we want to eat in the dinning room. Plus as this is the last night we have to get pack up and get out suitcases in the hallway. Also, most of the stores and places of interest are close by this time of day, so there is no point even getting off the ship. This is a beautiful city which we have enjoy in the past with a full day in port. We will have to remember not to go on the Sapphire to Alaska again until they change this port time frame. We just stay on the ship like most people did. We stop at this port last year on the Island and it was a full day which was great.

I was just in Victoria in June. I was on Celebrity and our stop was only for about four hours also. The stop in Victoria is only for the ships to meet the criteria set by the Jones Act. Our ship was there in the evening also, and we found plenty of stores and pubs open. We chose to just walk around the lovely town and found an Irish Pub. Others made a quick taxi trip to the Buchart Gardens.
