The Alaska sailing season has come to an end this year, but there are sailings along North America’s Pacific coastline. They’re called repositioning cruises since the ships reposition from the Pacific Northwest to warmer destinations such as Mexico and the Caribbean. In the spring, the reverse is true; they return to San Francisco, Seattle and Vancouver to start the Alaska sailing season.
Often, repositioning cruises are priced to entice people onboard. Although destinations may not be considered as exotic as Alaska, these sailings certainly appeal to travelers who haven’t cruised the US Pacific coast and offer tons of value to those seeking to experience life at sea without having to go far from home.
Here are a couple sailings to consider:
October 7, 2012 7-night Los Angeles Roundtrip visiting San Francisco, San Diego, and Ensenada.
May 6, 2013 9-night Ensenada to Seattle Pacific Coastal Wine Cruise with stops in San Diego, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Astoria, and Victoria.
September 13, 2013 10-Night Seattle to Ensenada Pacific Coast Wine Cruise calling in Nanaimo, Victoria, Astoria, San Francisco (overnight), Catalina, and San Diego.
The wine itineraries look fantastic, especially the one with an overnight in San Francisco. Would you sail any of these itineraries?
