Day 1, San Francisco, California, USA – EMBARKATION
Sailing under the famed Golden Gate Bridge is an unforgettable experience and is naturally a highlight of your visit to San Francisco. Upon arrival you will discover why this metropolis is one of the most diverse, dynamic and beautiful cities in the world. San Francisco is a melting pot of cultures and an important financial center of the world. Hellenic in its setting and climate, European in its intellectual and cultural scope, American in its vigor and informality and Asian in its tranquility, San Francisco is indeed one of the most exciting cities of the world. Opportunities for discovery abound. Stroll through Chinatown, shop at Union Square or browse through Fisherman's Wharf. Or perhaps, the attractions of North Beach will beckon. Sip cappuccino at a sidewalk café, feast on Italian food or browse through tempting specialty stores. Across the Golden Gate Bridge hide giant redwoods and artistic Sausalito which provide the perfect getaway from the city. Whatever your choice, San Francisco's distinctive charm engenders a special affection in the hearts of all who visit.

Day 3, Monterey, California, USA
The original capital of California, Monterey is steeped in Spanish and Mexican history, but it is primarily known today as one of the most popular waterfront communities on the West Coast. The city is home base to the world renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium, a leading advocate in ocean conservation. Steps from the Aquarium sits Cannery Row, made famous by John Steinbeck’s novel about life in Monterey’s seafood canning plants, and further on, Fisherman’s Wharf. Along the way, guests can catch sight of harbor seals, sea otters and pelicans in their natural habitats at the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary.

Day 5, Astoria, Oregon, USA
Situated near the mouth of the Columbia River, Astoria is named after legendary investor and America's first millionaire, John Jacob Astor. The tycoon's American Fur Company founded Fort Astoria in 1810, making the site not only the company's primary fur trading post in the Northwest, but also the first permanent American settlement west of the Rockies. Other historic figures and facts linked to Astoria include Lewis & Clark, who stayed near present-day Astoria during the winter of 1805-06, and how in 1847, the first post office west of the Rockies was established here. A look into the past is yours to enjoy as you stroll past some of the city's many restored Victorian homes and explore the revitalized 1920s era downtown. Of course, Astoria's natural beauty is as renowned as its history, with its "Little San Francisco" character set against the steep, wooded hillsides of a temperate rain forest.
Day 6, Seattle, Washington, USA
The "Emerald City" of Seattle lies on the shores of Elliott Bay, flanked by two rugged mountain ranges. To the east are the Cascades, while the Olympic Range lies to the west. Towering in the distance is the 14,400-foot peak of Mount Rainier, the tallest volcanic peak in the lower 48. Seattle's lively past dates back to the 1800s when it was the gateway to Alaska. Representing more recent development is the distinctive Space Needle, which was inaugurated for the 1962 World's Fair. Nowadays this prosperous and lively city is home to such famous enterprises as Boeing, Starbuck's Coffee and Microsoft.
Day 7, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
Discovered by Captain Cook over two centuries ago, the lovely city of Victoria has successfully nurtured its English ambiance and heritage. Wonderful legacies are preserved with bright red double-decker buses and the delicious tradition of high tea.
Shops brim with tartans, china, silver and antiques. From the landmark Empress Hotel to the impressive Parliament Buildings, city streets are filled with gracious architecture. A glorious profusion of colorful flowers abounds within the hanging baskets on every lamppost and at the world-famous Butchart Gardens.
Victoria is an atmospheric city which brims with old-world charm.
Day 8, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Prosperous and vibrant Vancouver is Canada's third-largest city and British Columbia's most cosmopolitan center. Enjoy exploring the restored Gastown district or discovering the intrigue of Chinatown. Seize this opportunity to sample delicacies from the sea, explore the North Shore and Stanley Park, the largest natural park of any city on the North American continent, and browse among shops and galleries in Granville Island. Blessed with an unsurpassed natural backdrop, Vancouver is set amid a gorgeous landscape of water and mountains.
