MY wife and I spent three days in VAncouver after an Alaskan Cruise out and back from there. If you have 11 days, you might want to spend 6 of them doing that as the mountains and ocen and scenery are spectacular. You can take helicoptors onto the glaciers or seaplanes into the interior of a days trip off the ship. When we got back to Vancouver, we stayed there for three days. We drove up to Whistler during the summer. Although there's no snow, the landscape is craggy and mountainous along the water. You might get some nice shots along the way. My also drove over to Vancouver Island taking the ferry which is neat. Hit Butchart Gardens which has the most amazing floral displays you'll ever see. The city of Victoria is very pretty on Vancouver Island as well. Good luck and have fun.
