    are there pepsi products in the vancouver stores so i can take some on the ship with me. I NEED MY PEPSI FIX.

    I'd assume they have pepsi everywhere, as it's a business worth more money than I could ever imagine...

    i did not remember seeing any when i was in vancouver the last time. i dont want to have to haul it with me from home if i dont have too. as i said, i need my ''zing'' from pepsi. and you are right about them being big money company. wish i had stock in them hahaha.

    There lot's of pepsi products in vancouver - i am sipping on some as i post this - you will be sailing out of canada place - don't know where you are staying but there is a large shopping mall called Pacific Center that has a Shoppers Drug Mart and a London Drugs - both of these will have the best prices on pepsi - it is only a couple blocks from the pier - shoppers is the closest to the port as the mall spreads out over a couple of city blocks - if you see the Sears store it is part of the mall - there is also a 7-11 close by but there prices are usally higher.

    Hope this helps

    thanks so much dennis

    i am going to be looking for my pepsi for sure now. i just cant drink coke ( sorry to all you coke lovers ) and it will be worth the trouble to carry it on board. yes i am leaving from canada place. i also will be picking up a few bottles of wine to take on board. the last time i was in vancouver i got some great ice wine at granville market. it was wonderful and now i am hooked on it. thanks again.

    Trekker- We're staying at the Hyatt Regency in July! As a citizen of Vancouver, is this a good hotel? It sounds nice. Sorry to put you on the spot but I thought you might be familiar with this hotel. Thanks!

    Haven't stay there but it seems popular from the posts on the various message boards here and at cruise critic - it's centrally located - has a small shopping mall underneath it with a McDonalds, Tim horton's etc. It was renovated a year or so ago and seems to be a popular choice for priceline bidders - it's about 5 blocks from Canada Place - two blocks to Robson St and two blocks to the larger Pacific Center mall -

    Hope this helps

    yes indeed....but it might be a little harder to find. Smaller stores sometimes don't do the volumn needed. Try the stores named above.

    here in the states we have the six-packs of diet pepsi that are 1/2 can size. this would be perfect for drinking when you are in the cabin for a short time or before bed. do they carry that size there in pepsi ? if not the original size will do. as long as i can get my pepsi fix!!!

    Thanks trekker!

    Dusty- maybe you should take some 2 liter bottles instead of cans if you're not gonna drink a whole one...

    Trekker Guest

    Two liter ones probably won't fit in your cabin fridge - or were you planning on taking a small cooler and loading up on ice on board.

    Caffeine free coke should be available at the two locations mentioned above - for those not from Canada those two "drug" companies are two of the largest of their kind in Western Canada - similiar to Payless in the States.

    thanks for the suggestion griffin but i meant the small size cans. we have them in our area now. they are 6 oz. really cute and the size is perfect for a quick soda on the run. i know now from trekker that i will be able to pick some up some where along the way in vancouver so now i dont have to worry any more.

    thanks to all for your helpful tips.

    you're worrying over whether or not they have 6 oz pepsi's in Vancouver, hmmm...

    yes i do want to get some in vancouver if i can. i really dont want to haul it from home.

    us die-hard pepsi drinkers have to do what we can too get our ''pepsi fix'' and i could not remember from last year if i saw it in the great city of vancouver.

    Perhaps you can spend the next year weaning yourself off of your addiction, and then you'll be able to see the insignificance of these questions.

    Also, I'll bet a 'Pepsi-free Fund' could add up to quite a few $$ which could be used to purchase an excursion while in Vancouver or Alaska.

    Dusty and Kana - update regarding your questions.
    A friend of mine works at the London Drugs store on Robson street and both the 6oz Pepsi cans and caffeine free coke are sold there and should also be available at the Pacific center store - if you let me know which hotels you are staying at I will give you directions to the closest ones and I hope that you both have a great cruise and enjoy the many free attractions that Vancouver had to offer.

    thanks dennis

    we will be staying at the comfort inn airport and i see from their website that i will be within walking distance of a liquar store and drug store. so i know for sure i can pick up my pepsi there and also get my bottles of wine for the trip.

    and i do love vancouver. i would like to spend a week there some time. it is a wonderful city and there are so many great things to do.

    thanks again for offering to help. we go to extreme lengs for our pepsi dont we ( hehehehehe).
