Alaska Cruises from San Francisco in 2014

It’s not often considered initially, but an Alaska cruise departing from San Francisco may be just what you’re looking for. Although not as many Alaska cruise sailings are offered out of the Golden Gate City compared to Seattle and Vancouver, it remains a popular option. In total, there are 4 itineraries and 15 sailings in 2014.

An Alaskan cruise from San Francisco is a great option if you:

  • want to explore more of the Pacific coast. (Three out of the four itineraries calls in Astoria, Oregon, a quaint town of 10,000 people located near the mouth of the mighty Columbia River.)
  • are looking for a cruise vacation longer than 7 days.
  • live closer to San Francisco than Seattle or Vancouver.

The first one sails on May 9, 2014 for 12 nights aboard Regent’s luxurious Seven Seas Navigator.
