If you sail from Vancouver you go through US immigration when boarding the ship and from then on you are in US territory. If you are sailing from Seward then you are already in the USA and you are in it until reaching Vancouver. Re tours, I don't know if it's the same now (it is some years since I went there) but beware that if you go on the White Pass railroad trip in Skagway the return bus trip may well go via Canada and you have to go through US immigration on the way back. Don't forget your passport otherwise you could be in big trouble!

My name is Charlie and I have just been on Allure of the Seas. I have been on 3 other cruises before but this was my favourite. Mummy woke me up really early because we had to get a flight from Edinburgh and then we needed to get on a different plane in London. I watched 4 kids films on the flight. Miami airport was so boring it took us 2 hours to get out. We stayed in Fort Lauderdale for a night and got on the cruise ship the next day. We checked in but had to wait about 30mins before we co...
