Cruise from Golden Beaches to Emerald Forests.
For generations, dreamers, adventurers, and explorers have been drawn to America’s bountiful Pacific Coast. From the perennial sunshine, expansive beaches and manicured golf courses of San Diego to the mist-shrouded coniferous forests and snow-capped peaks that frame Vancouver, British Columbia, this magnificent region offers an incredible variety of delightful experiences which you can enjoy on a Holland America Line Pacific Coast cruise.
Easygoing San Diego embodies the Southern California surfer town fantasy, with its more than 300 days of sun, mild year-round temperatures and accessible, sporty pastimes and tourist attractions. You can hike the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve to get a glimpse of whale migrations, go sailing in the bay and, of course, surf the famous swells of Del Mar, Oceanside and La Jolla (among many other superb spots). But the sixth-largest city in the United States is surprisingly nuanced, with distinctive neighborhoods: Old Town, North Park, Point Loma, and Coronado are all within a few miles of the port, while the bustling Gaslamp Quarter and Little Italy are within walking distance.
Vancouver seduces visitors with its combination of urban sophistication and laid-back attitude against a backdrop of glass towers and modern sights and plentiful green spaces.Vancouver’s culinary and cocktail scene is on the rise—and its excellent restaurants and hopping bars have a distinctively local stamp on them. If you are looking for where to go in Vancouver for music, theater, and the arts, they are thriving in the city’s many museums, galleries and performance venues. Beyond the downtown attractions in Vancouver, days of exploration and sightseeing await among the colorful suburbs, unspoiled islands, and the vast, rugged wilderness.
