California Cruise Highlights

Fine Wines

California is famed for its fine wines, particularly those grown in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. Head out of San Francisco over the Golden Gate Bridge to the rolling wine country of Sonoma Valley, dotted with sleepy country towns and wineries. Here, you’ll visit a local grower, enjoy a tour of the winery, and have time for a tasting. Further north, in Oregon, taste some of the world’s finest pinots in the scenic Willamette Valley, where there are no less than 700 wineries.

Cosmopolitan San Francisco

Few cities are packed with as many iconic sights as San Francisco, from the graceful vermillion span of the Golden Gate Bridge to the vintage cable cars, the zig-zag of Lombard Street, the Victorian “Painted Ladies” of Haight Street, and the colors, aromas, and bustle of Chinatown. Head to North Beach for the best Italian coffee, shop for souvenirs at Pier 39, and take a tour of seemingly impenetrable Alcatraz to learn about the legendary criminals who were incarcerated here.

Scenic Hikes

Join a guided hike over the scenic East End Trail on rugged Catalina Island, climbing to 1,684 feet, with sweeping views of the eastern shoreline. Commune with nature in this pristine environment, where you could spot bald eagles, Catalina gray fox, deer, and bison. From San Francisco, one of the most beautiful hikes is the six miles of trails snaking through Muir Woods, a primeval landscape of ferns and rushing streams shaded by magnificent redwoods.

California Cruise Destinations

Panama Canal

Experience the thrill of sailing through the Panama Canal, a wonder of engineering that connects the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Get close to the locks and learn about the canal’s history on a trip from Colon, or paddle a kayak on Panama’s island-specked Gatun Lake. Panama Canal itineraries also visit buzzing Puerto Vallarta and Huatulco in Mexico, and the cloud forests of Costa Rica, rich in wildlife. Historic Cartagena, all cobbled streets and vibrant color, is another highlight.

Pacific Coast

Make your way along the rugged Pacific Coast visiting unforgettable destinations in California, Oregon, and British Columbia. Explore rugged Catalina Island on two wheels, or on a guided hike. Take advantage of an overnight stay in San Francisco to explore the museums, taste dim sum in Chinatown, and visit the rolling vineyards of Sonoma or Napa Valley. Embrace the seaside charm of historic Astoria and stroll through the pristine Butchart Gardens in quaint Victoria on Vancouver Island.
