Tip from Trip101 local expert

Some cruises offer pick-up services from hotels-make sure to check in advance so that you do not miss out on the excursion. If you are traveling to the pier independently, the Skytrain is the most convenient mode of transport. The cruise takes a few hours so there is plenty of time to take photographs and make TIkTok videos. Make sure to enjoy the views first.
