California & Pacific Coast Cruises
Discover the best of the West Coast in style
It's amazing what a little sea spray can do for the soul. Voted "Best Cruises from the West Coast" by Cruise Critic, our California Coastal cruise vacations hug the shores of the sun-kissed Pacific Coast, where inviting beaches, fascinating cities and exciting attractions await. Wander Santa Barbara's historic mission, explore charming Catalina Island and savor flavorful wines from Ensenada’s burgeoning wine country. Plus, these convenient roundtrip cruises are a great value — with international dining, comfortable accommodations, world-class entertainment, a Vegas-style casino and endless ocean views all included in your fare.
Why Cruise the California Coast?
Hug the scenic shores of the sun-kissed California coast, where inviting beaches, fascinating cities and exciting attractions await. Our relaxing 7-day California Coastal cruises offer a truly memorable vacation option with minimal planning for West Coast cruisers! And on itineraries with More Ashore Late Night calls, we stay until at least 9 p.m. in port so you can also experience some of the fabulous nightlife.
California Coast Entertainer's Showcase
Gain an insider’s perspective on the music and movies that have long inspired the Golden State’s international allure. Featuring celebrated performers and award winners, our California Coast Entertainer’s Showcase lets you get to know an industry insider through Q&A sessions, meet & greets for photo opportunities and book signings, even special performances and workshops.
Wine Country Coastal Cruise Vacations
If the serenity of lush vineyards is more your style, join us for a 7-day Wine Country Coastal cruise that sails further up the scenic West Coast and offers wine tasting excursions in Santa Barbara, San Francisco and Astoria, as well as a pub crawl in Victoria, B.C.
West Coast Getaway Cruise Vacations
Perhaps you have limited vacation time or are simply looking for a few days away from it all – then consider a 3- or 4-day West Coast Getaway! With all the amenities of a longer cruise in a smaller package, our West Coast Getaway cruises offer a great value for your vacation dollar!
Pacific Coastal Getaway Cruise Vacations
If you simply wish to go between ports – maybe to visit friends and relatives – along the coast on these “repositioning” cruises, our Pacific Coastal Getaways are a fun way to travel and still be catered as if you were taking a longer vacation. From ports such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle and Vancouver, B.C., there is something for everyone. And, think about extending your stay with a Cruise Plus Hotel Package.
