On this long, breathtaking coastline, European explorers seemed to have found the mythical El Dorado, a place as bountiful in resources as it was surpassing in beauty.

Seabourn's Pacific Coast ports map

Today the coast is graced with handsome cities: the ethereal Emerald City of Seattle, Portland, the City of Roses, and San Francisco astride its seven hills above the Bay. Enchanting towns have thrived around the early Spanish missions: picturesque Monterey and Santa Barbara, the hillside American Riviera. Their historical and cultural attractions draw visitors from around the globe to enjoy their theaters, museums, galleries and arts festivals. On a Seabourn cruise, you’ll arrive in these cities in the time-honored way -- from the sea.

Featured Ports

Los Angeles, California, US

Sun-drenched Los Angeles sprawls between the blue Pacific Ocean and snow-capped mountains, the entertainment capital of the world, with more museums than any other U.S. city.

Seattle, Washington, US

Picturesquely sited between the snow-capped Olympic Range and the Cascades, Washington State’s “Emerald City” welcomes you with parks, museums and the Pike Street Public Market.

Vancouver, B.C., CA

The humble beginnings of the City of Vancouver, in the settlement of Gastown on Burrard Inlet, rose out of the old growth forests and the sawdust of the old Hastings Mill.

Sail in under the Golden Gate Bridge, one of the world’s most photographed structures. The picturesque city itself is easily navigated by visitors from the bay-front Embarcadero.

“The American Riviera” sprawls on slopes rising from a sandy beach to the steep backdrop of the Santa Ynez Range, with Spanish adobe-styled facades and red barrel-tiled roofs.

The Inner Harbor’s Parliament Buildings and Empress Hotel impress visitors with Victoria’s English heritage, as do Butchart Gardens, horse trolleys and red double decker busses.
