We'll see the Golden Gate Bridge (including a picture stop), Golden Gate Park, Chinatown, Victorian Homes, North Beach, and more! This afternoon and evening are free to enjoy as you wish. Maybe take a ferry to Alcatraz, or take a cable car ride? Your tour director will assist with options.
Board the Grand Princess
After a leisurely morning we are transferred to the Grand Princess, our home for the next six nights. Enjoy getting acquainted with your ship! Your ship features lovely dining rooms that offer traditional set times for dining or anytime dining plus, choose from more casual fare at the Pizzeria, the Trident Grill, or Horizon Court Buffet. After dinner the fun continues with shows in the Princess Theater, Movies Under the Stars outdoor theater, a Vegas Style Casino, plus nightclubstyle performances in the Explorers Lounge or dancing at one of the lounges.
It's your day to enjoy as you wish! You can shop in the boutiques, relax with a spa treatment, lounge by the pool, or visit the sports court or work out center. It is also a great time to make sure you are ready for our upcoming ports with a visit to the shore excursions desk. (Each port offers shore tours that vary in length, activity level and price.)
Called the American Riviera, Santa Barbara is a place where food, art, history, fashion, wine and sunshine mix to create a delightful and unique experience for visitors. The "Queen of the Missions," Santa Barbara's Old Mission can be traced back to the 1700's when the mission was built to bring Christianity to the Chumash Indians. Or maybe you'd prefer to see Solvang and do some wine tasting? Or enjoy a Coastal Whale Watching cruise as this is high season to see Gray Whales migrating to Alaska. (Note: Tender Required, Wheelchair Access Limited.)
Los Angeles (Long Beach)
This gateway to sunny Southern California has lots of options to enjoy. Marvel at the glitz of Hollywood with a drive along famed Sunset Strip. Or explore vibrant Olvera Street, the 250-year-old birthplace of Los Angeles. How about a trip to Beverly Hills and the Getty Center? A Harbor Cruise of Long Beach will feature the world famous Queen Mary, the Russian Spy Submarine-The Black Scorpion plus see California Sea Lions in their natural habitat.
San Diego offers much to see and do! Hop on the trolley for a tour of the city and/or visits to Seaport Village, Balboa Park, Coronado Island, and more! Sea World & the San Diego Zoo are other popular ways to spend a day.
Ensenada is just 70 miles south of the international border. Optional tours include a visit to the spectacular blowhole of La Bufadora (a natural marine geyser that blasts water 100 feet into the air), see Plaza Civica filled with magnificent statues of Mexico's greatest local heroes, learn about the growing wine industry, or experience a Mexican Folkloric Fiesta featuring music and dancing.
