West Coast USA Adventure Itinerary

Day 1 - UK - Vancouver (Canada)

Fly from the UK and enjoy an overnight stay in a luxurious hotel.

Day 2 - Vancouver

Welcome to Vancouver, framed by the Pacific Ocean and Coast Mountains, where a world of wonder awaits as you step on board Scenic Eclipse and raise your glass to toast the start of your luxurious cruise.

Day 3 - Seattle (United States of America)

Seattle is a city on Puget Sound, surrounded by water, mountains and evergreen forests, and contains thousands of acres of parkland. A city where technology meets the natural environment, home to a large tech industry, with Microsoft and Amazon headquartered in its metropolitan area.

Day 4 - Victoria (Canada)

Victoria may be many kilometres from Great Britain, but it has the most British vibe. Between sipping afternoon tea, visiting flower gardens and castles and stopping in at pubs, one could easily forget about the Pacific Ocean lapping at the other side of Vancouver Island. The influence of the First Nations culture is also strong, with totem poles taking a front-and-centre position on the Inner Harbour and in Beacon Hill Park.

Day 5 - Astoria (United States of America)

With Victorian-era homes etched into the hills overlooking the Columbia River, this picturesque settlement (the oldest west of the Rockies) is a port city with Scandinavian flavour. Surrounded by forests, boasting three rivers and situated a stone's throw away from the Pacific, Astoria is a fishing village-meets-Victoriana, filled with forts, museums and great local brews.

Day 6 - At Sea

Relaxation beckons with so many choices on board you will wonder how time passes so quickly. Choose one of the daily activities including a class in Scenic Epicure, join an entertaining discussion in the Theatre, or make time for your own fitness regime.

Day 7 - Eureka

Take in this port city which is the largest deep water port between San Francisco and Coos Bay. You may even get a photo opportunity with a host of waterfowl which are abundant on the bay, as well many picturesque shoreline features. Eureka once played a major role in the historic west coast lumber trade, and is the site of hundreds of significant Victorian era homes, including the nationally recognized Carson Mansion. This city sits on the Redwood Coast and is near the world's tallest trees.

Day 8 - San Francisco

Sitting between the Pacific Ocean and the Sierra Nevada mountains, laid-back San Francisco is 'The City by the Bay' and is home to an eclectic mix of cultures and the world-famous Golden Gate Bridge. Enjoy the superb bay views, cross the steep rolling hills by tram, explore eerie Alcatraz or visit the Museum of Modern Art. Not to be forgotten are the celebrated vineyards of the Napa and Sonoma Valleys.

Day 9 - Monterey

The Monterey Peninsula, about 120 miles south of San Francisco, is arguably one of the most naturally beautiful areas on earth, its rocky coast fringed by cypress forests and abundant marine sanctuaries. It also boasts rich literary roots in the writings of John Steinbeck and Robert Louis Stevenson. A day in the city and its surrounding communities provides many opportunities to explore this hilly, sea-kissed area in depth.

Day 10 - Santa Barbara

Welcome to Paradise is a fitting expression for those visiting the coastal city of Santa Barbara. Called the American Riviera, Santa Barbara is a place where food, art, history, fashion, wine and sunshine mix to create a delightful and unique experience for all. Charming Spanish and Moorish style buildings, palm-lined beaches, a warm Mediterranean climate, charming sidewalk cafes and a pristine seaside setting are some of the wonderful reasons for visiting Santa Barbara.

Day 11 - San Diego - UK

Your cruise ends this morning in San Diego as you say farewell to your crew. Disembark after breakfast and transfer to the airport for your flight homeward.
