The grand old lady

BC Ferries,Queen of Burnaby,Westview

Heading into Westview Terminal aboard the Queen of Burnaby


At first glance it might be annoying that much of the Queen of Burnaby is closed to passengers – all of deck 5 is closed, and below, you can’t go further forward of the doors out of the forward passenger lounge on deck 4.


It’s due to economics and safety – the ferry traffic is low so BC Ferries does not need as many staff members, which in turn means that they can’t effectively clear deck 5 in an emergency. Such is life…


I’ll miss standing in the wind and watching the world go by, talking to the crew, or just lazing on a life jacket locker and enjoying a cup of coffee while reading a book.
