1/6 Pacific: Celebrity Cruises

Why go?

Wow the kids with a California cruise taking in the highlights of the US west coast. Departing from Los Angeles on Celebrity Cruises’ recently revamped Celebrity Century, featuring a new sushi bar, spa café and balcony cabins, the cruise departs from Los Angeles and follows the route of the famous coastal Highway 101.

The route

The ship calls in to Santa Barbara, before arriving under the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco, arguably one of the most spectacular arrivals into a cruise port anywhere in the world.

There’s time to take a cable car ride up and down the city’s famous hills, grab lunch in Chinatown and take a trip across the bay to Alcatraz. After the excitement of the big city, the ship returns south to spend a day in Monterey, famed for its links to John Steinbeck and Robert Louis Stevenson and renowned for its natural beauty, classy restaurants and local wineries.
Continue the laidback Californian vibe on Catalina Island where you’ll have the chance to take in water sports ?such as wake-boarding, snorkeling ?and kayaking.

Celebrity Century’s final call is across the border on the Mexican Baja peninsula city of Ensenada, before returning to the bright lights of LA.
