Fine wines, vintage trolleys and American surf culture abound throughout this weeklong cruise abundant in Golden State splendors and Baja scenery. Sip and savor flavorful Mexican high desert red wines in wineries throughout Valle de Guadalupe near Ensenada. Sample dim sum and steaming teas along the ornate and historic streets of San Francisco’s Chinatown. Browse small art galleries and artisan shops along the placid marina waterfront in nearby Sausalito. Lose yourself in John Steinbeck’s rustic settings along Monterey’s Cannery Row. Gaze across the Carmel Bay’s rugged cliffs and admire the centuries-old Lone Cypress along storied 17 Mile Drive. Delve into the shady recesses of centuries-old Mission Santa Barbara adorned with Spanish colonial art, or listen to growling surf rock guitars as you dine on fresh seafood and sourdough bread paired with handcrafted ales in a warm and inviting waterfront bar or casual beachside restaurants.

Book with Confidence! Book your stateroom by December 31, 2020 and if you have to cancel your reservations prior to 48 hours from departure, your cruise fare penalty will be issued to you in the form of a future cruise credit certificate. This does not include any land or air arrangements—these would fall under the policy of the hotel and airline. Administrative fee of $75.pp would apply.
