Ports of Call

Los Angeles, California - Los Angeles is a relatively young city, barely over a century old. This 467-square-mile desert basin is not only the center of the world's film industry; it also plays a major role in television, fashion, music and art. No wonder some of the world's most famous individuals choose L.A. as their home. The sunsets over the Pacific are nothing less than spectacular, and there are 72 miles of incredible oceanfront beaches from which to enjoy them.

At Sea - Cruising - Cruising

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Puerto Vallarta has all the amenities of a classic beach resort ‐ surf, sand and sun‐ but it also offers so much more. Perfect for honeymooners, families and seniors alike, Puerto Vallarta offers sport fishing, golfing, horseback riding, hiking and whale watching. Boasting mountains, jungles, beaches, rivers, and waterfalls, this port is completely different from any other destination in Mexico. Puerto Vallarta is a modern destination that remains loyal to its traditional Mexican roots. And that's just scratching the surface.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico - This sleepy fishing village turned celebrity vacation haven is known for its snorkeling, coral reefs galore, and a nightlife that rivals the biggest party destinations in the world. Located at the southern end of California’s Baja Peninsula, Cabo San Lucas is growing in popularity, attracting everyone from Hollywood stars to nature lovers with its tropical ease and natural beauty. Fishing enthusiasts are encouraged to bring their catch of the day to local restaurants, who will grill your fish onsite for you. On a Panama Canal cruise, a stop in Cabo San Lucas isn’t complete without a margarita or a wildly-popular local tequila tasting.

While on your Cabo cruise, don’t miss iconic sites like El Arco de Cabo San Lucas, where tourists flock to catch the sunset glittering off the massive arch-shaped rock formation. Snorkel and see the coral reefs along the Sea of Cortez, or do nothing but sunbathe at Lover’s Beach. When you need a slower day away from the incredible beaches and nightlife of Cabo San Lucas, head north for a day trip to the Todos Santos for art galleries, sleepy cafes, and a relaxed vibe.

Ensenada, Mexico - South of the border, alongside mountains, desert and sea, Ensenada offers a warm and wonderful introduction to Mexico. The oldest community on the Baja Peninsula, it was first visited by Spanish missionaries in the 17th century. Today it's a thriving seaport. Ensenada's breezy climate invites exploration, shopping for colorful handicrafts, dining on delectable seafood, viewing the wonderful Gold Coast, and sipping cervezas in lively cantinas.
