Day 1

Los Angeles, California ~

Embark 1:00 PM, Depart 8:00 PM

Bask on the sun-kissed beaches of Malibu or shop along Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. Ride a bike through Griffith Park and visit the observatory, just below the Hollywood sign. Visit the stunning Getty Museum and maybe take in a special concert at the Disney Concert Hall, designed by Frank Gehry.

 

Day 2

Catalina Island, California ~ 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM

Just off the coast of Southern California, lovely Catalina Island offers endless adventures on both land and sea. Snorkel the clear waters or venture out on a glass-bottom boat tour to view the colorful marine life and sunken shipwrecks. Equally scenic vistas await you on a hiking, biking or zip-lining excursion through the island’s grasslands and woodlands. Be sure to take a behind-the-scenes tour of the Catalina Casino. Perched along the harbor, this spectacular entertainment venue has been the center of the island’s cultural scene since it opened in 1929.

 

Day 3

Ensenada, Mexico ~ 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM

Located on the west coast of Baja California, Ensenada is a sportsman’s paradise with popular pursuits including surfing, sport fishing, sea kayaking, horseback riding and mountain biking. If you prefer more leisurely activities, take a scenic coastal drive to the Punta Banda Peninsula to see La Bufadora. This marine geyser that shoots from the sea toward the clifftops is one of the largest blowholes in North America. Back in town, pop into famous Hussong’s Cantina and sip a margarita in the bar where the cocktail was reputedly invented.

 

Day 4

Cruising The Pacific Ocean

Experience the warm and convivial atmosphere unique to Oceania Cruises: elegance without pretense. Feel wonderfully at home as you meet fellow shipmates, explore the ship and prepare for the fascinating ports of call you will soon discover. Meet friends for cocktails at Martinis and share adventures you enjoyed ashore. Join an afternoon bridge game, or perhaps simply relax by yourself in one of the many private retreats reserved just for you.

The stimulating variety of entertainment options on board Oceania ships continually ensures your interests are piqued. Enjoy an engaging guest lecture by a historian, naturalist or former ambassador eager to share insider knowledge. Relax at a musical performance, perhaps featuring a live pianist, a classical string quartet, a dynamic vocalist or a spectacular headliner. Later, try your luck at the elegant Monte Carlo-style casino or go dancing at Horizons.

 

Day 5

San Francisco, California ~ Arrive 8:00 AM

With icons like the orange-colored Golden Gate Bridge, clanging streetcars, rolling fog and impossibly steep hills, scenic San Francisco never fails to capture your heart. While the setting is dramatic, the atmosphere is positively laissez-faire, so feel free to do whatever you wish. Tour notorious Alcatraz. See predators like the sharks that live in the surrounding waters at the Aquarium of the Bay. Observe the bonsai in the Japanese Tea Garden in emerald-green Golden Gate Park. Go up mural-covered Coit Tower atop Telegraph Hill for an amazing view of the city, which looks even more dynamic at night.

 

Day 6

San Francisco, California ~ Depart 7:00 PM

 

Day 7

Monterey, California ~ 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM

The rugged cliffs, lush cypress and cerulean waters of the Monterey Peninsula are so stunningly beautiful that one of the area’s most famous attractions is simply a 17-mile drive along the coast. Perched on these scenic shores, the town of Monterey has long inspired artists and authors alike. Recalling the city’s heyday as a sardine canning capital, Ocean View Boulevard was renamed Cannery Row after John Steinbeck’s novel by that name immortalized the street. Now the fishing shacks along the waterfront have been quaintly refurbished into antique shops and restaurants, and one former cannery houses a world-renowned aquarium. You could spend all day picking the best clam chowder on Fisherman’s Wharf, but you should also have a salad. The cold waters of the offshore Blue Grand Canyon, twice the depth of its namesake, create a uniquely temperate climate that harvests the freshest produce in the country, as well as distinctive wines.

 

Day 8

Santa Barbara, California ~ 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM

Known as The American Riviera, the enchanting town of Santa Barbara is nestled between the picturesque coastline of its southern shores and the verdant Santa Ynez Mountains rising steeply to the north. The warm sunshine of a Mediterranean climate illuminates the red-tiled roofs and adobe façades of the town’s Spanish Colonial architecture, including the grand Old Mission founded by the first Spanish settlers in the 18th century. Santa Barbara may be best enjoyed with a pleasant stroll, be it through Shoreline Park, along Stearns Wharf or down hip State Street. Renowned art and history museums, wine-tasting rooms, seaside cafés and charming boutiques provide endless entertainment in town, while just over the mountains in the fertile Santa Ynez Valley, you can tour several award-winning wineries.

Los Angeles, California ~ Disembark 8:00 AM
