Where I stayed
The Inside Passage runs from Port Hardy to Prince Rupert along a rugged stretch of wilderness coast through a series of coastal Channels and Fjords, past countless islands and a couple of isolated native communities
The food on board was reasonably priced, but would recommend you take your own provisions as well as it is a long trip. There is not much to do on the ship except admire the scenery or spot the wildlife. There is a small shop, a cafe and a lounge area with a TV. At lunch and dinner time a cafe opened up on the outside deck that cooked a BBQ of Hotdogs and Kebabs.
The views along the Inside Passage were amazing! We saw a pod of Killer Whales (Orca's) at the start of the Fitz Hugh Sound and a couple of Humpback Whales later in the voyage. The only problem with the trip was the weather. The cloud base was rather low which obscured some of the scenery, but even with this the scenery was spectacular!
We arrived in Prince Rupert at around 22:30 and went straight to our hotel for the night the Inn on the Harbour. The hotel was not much to look at from the outside, but had recently been refurbished inside. The room was comfortable and of a good size. The complimentary breakfast was rather poor compared to others offering only tea, coffee, juice, toast and croissants in a very small dining area.
