Vancouver 2010 Olympic tourists might have the chance to sea the west coast city in true luxury. To deal with the abundance of tourists expected to flock in for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, cruise ships may be moored in the downtown core to act as floating luxury hotels.

Newwest Travel may be offering accommodation aboard Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Star, a luxury liner capable of housing 2,240-passengers.

Trend Hunter previously told you of plans to house around 5,000 RCMP (Canadian cops) aboard two cruise ships for the 2010 games due to lack of space on land. It seems to be a favored temporary housing solution.

Although it has yet to be confirmed, the rumor is that the Norwegian Star will be docked in North Vancouver, close to the infamous Lions Gate Bridge, at the Vancouver Wharves terminal. The gallery shows a picture of the area.
