Enjoy an expedition cruise along the West Coast of North America. This is an opportunity to discover the continent from a completely new and amazing angle. These journeys take us to both small communities and large, iconic cities.

Visit the places you have seen, read or dreamt about in a fantastic mix and a broad variety of stops along the way. Cruising along the coast enables a much greater spread of experiences than regular travel where you would have to pick a certain city or region to visit.  

Discover history and culture, nature and wildlife, local food and drink. The coastline is full of hidden gems and new discoveries. And in the oceans outside North America, you can expect to see dolphins, whales and a large number of bird species.  

West Coast. On the west coast, visit famous places as Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Santa Catalina island, Seattle and Vancouver.

It’s a truly urban expedition along one of the most famous coastlines of the world.
