What to Do on a California Coast Getaway Cruise

Reconnect with nature or relax with a glass of Napa Valley wine in hand on a three-day cruise. From San Diego to Vancouver and every port between, refresh your mind and come back rejuvenated on Pacific Coast Getaways.
  • Stanley Park in Vancouver

    In the heart of Vancouver’s metropolis lies a 1,000-acre rainforest teeming with wildlife and natural beauty. On a three-day cruise from Los Angeles or Pacific Coastal Getaways from San Francisco, discover hidden gems tucked inside the city’s park — like the aquarium and Totem Pole Park. Or hike the trails, bike along the seawall path or cross the Lynn Suspension Bridge for unparalleled views of the forest.

  • Alcatraz, Pier 39 & More in San Francisco

    From riding cable cars to sampling fresh bay shrimp, experience it all in The Golden City. On short cruises from San Francisco, visit Alcatraz and walk in the footsteps of famous prisoners from the past. Spend the day shopping at Pier 39, and enjoy lunch at one of the waterside restaurants. Or head to Sonoma and Napa Valley to experience California’s famous Wine Country, where you can sip on award-winning vino.

  • Columbia River Maritime Museum in Astoria

    Travel through time as you peruse the exhibits of Astoria’s Columbia River Maritime Museum, home to one of the nation's finest displays of model ships and nautical artifacts. During a Pacific Coast getaway, enjoy interactive exhibits, watch short films and get up close to over 30,000 maritime objects. Or admire the 44-foot Coast Guard rescue boat suspended mid-air, and tour the floating lighthouse, known as Columbia.
