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.

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.

Catalina Island

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!

San Francisco

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.
