A Journey Tracing North America’s Pacific Shores – Luxury Cruise

Countries Visited: Canada, United States


Vancouver, beating heart of British Columbia, beguiles us with her cool cosmopolitanism, belying the far-reaching Canadian wilderness beyond. From here, we weave a cluster of islands and track the contours of the North Pacific coastline, passaging the less-explored, empty landscapes of Oregon, its groves of redwoods and rugged national parks. Sailing past the soaring burnt sienna towers of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz, we nudge into San Francisco Bay to venture into her divine hills. Tracing Big Sur, along the wave-crashed, sun-kissed California shoreline, we arrive in Los Angeles where her golden sands and Hollywood glitz, Venice Beach and Sunset Boulevard welcome us into a world of glamour!

Day 1 – Vancouver, BC

Port: Vancouver
Arrival Method: Dock
Departure: 17:00

Surrounded by mountains, vibrant Vancouver is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and cosmopolitan adventurers alike. Meandering oceanside pathways surround eclectic neighbourhoods – Stanley Park, the West End, Gastown, Yaletown, Chinatown. A major global city, it is renowned for its cultural diversity and thriving art, theatre, music and food scenes. Its perfectly picturesque setting makes it popular filming location – with old-growth cedar forests, mountains covering 75% and two-thirds of Canada’s bird species and land mammals. A big, bustling city perched on the edge of wilderness.

Day 2 – At sea

Day 3 – Astoria

Port: Astoria
Arrival Method: Dock
Arrival: 08:00
Departure: 18:00

Astoria bears the watermark of its history as a strategic port on the mighty Columbia River overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The native Clatsop devised an extensive waterfront trade system. In 1805, the Lewis and Clark expedition established a tiny, tactical fort. A few years later, Astoria was founded as a fur-trading post and the first U.S. city west of the Rockies. Soon, the maritime industry lead growth and remains today. Stroll into the solitude of the surrounding forests or along the town’s pleasant river walk, take in its deftly curated museums and growing arts scene. Witness American history unique to the pure and natural Pacific Northwest.

Day 4 – At sea

Day 5 – San Francisco

Port: San Francisco
Arrival Method: Dock
Arrival: 09:00
Departure: 23:00

The city delights with its iconic Golden Gate Bridge and surrounding parks for mindfulness and a strong community committed to oceanic and marine wildlife conservation efforts. You can hear the earth breathing in Muir Woods, as the wind whistles through some of her tallest and longest living redwood trees. Sip the temperate terroir in the valleys of Napa and Sonoma, the most acclaimed wine regions of America. Feel the love of the 1960s that still permeates through Haight Ashbury, where hippy culture still stokes the fires of free-thinkers. Step into iconic cable cars that lumber through gilded Nob Hill or climb the famously steep streets of classic “Dirty Harry” movies. A melting pot of cultures — gold rush pioneers, American farmers, Asian immigrants — is a recipe for the city’s ubiquitous dishes including delicate dim sum to cioppino seafood soup to rustic sour dough bread. San Francisco is to be enjoyed with your imagination fulfilled and your appetite thoroughly sated.

Day 6 – At Sea

Day 7 – Los Angeles

Port: Los Angeles
Arrival Method: Dock
Arrival: 07:00

Surrounded by ocean, mountains, forest, and desert, gilded with crystal-clear light and the rich diversity of people, LA glows with a heavenly quality. A blend of neighbourhoods each radiating with their own distinct vibe and character: Beverly Hills with its legendary shopping along Rodeo Drive; Hollywood with its movie studios; and Bel Air with its stately mansions. Relive the glory days of Tinseltown in downtown landmarks. Discover museums that hold illuminating works of Shakespeare, Thoreau and one of 12 surviving original Guttenberg Bibles. Then feel the creative firmament of mother nature at Santa Monica and Malibu Beaches. Truly, the stars have aligned to create such a legendary galaxy of sites.
