No it doesn't...We can only thank the "Jones Act" for that one. A west coast cruise would be nice, departing from Seattle and visiting every major sea port all the way down to to San Diego.

During the H1N1 flare-up last year Splendor went north a couple of times instead of south, didn't it?

Nope no close to the Golden Gate bridge. However, there use to be Mexican Riveria cruise that start from San Francisco do cruise right under the bridge. We did an Alaskan cruise from San Francisco. Jones act isn't the problem. During the H1N1 flu scare the Mexican Riveria cruises were re routed. They did go under the golden gate bridge, because the ports were San Francisco, Seattle, and Victioria, Canada. I think the reason the cruiselines don't normally offer this cruise is no beaches. Most people want either warm weather and beaches or the amazing views of Alaska.

I was on one of the Splendor sailings that went North. We stopped in Astoria, OR, Victoria, B.C, and Vancouver. It was beautiful, and one of the best trips I've ever taken. It didn't matter that the weather wasn't warm, we had a GREAT time! Even better was that fact that we booked two weeks out, and paid $229/pp for an aft balcony!

The last day at sea was warm enough to hang out by the pool and use the water slide. I even turned into a lobster from the sun.

I wish this cruise was available for us West Coasters, or another option besides just Mexican Riveria or Alaska.

It's actually the Passengers Vessel Service Act, not the Jones Act, that prevents foreign flagged ships to transport of passengers between US cities.

The Jones Act (Merchant Marine Act) requires all goods to be transported between US cities to be by a US flagged ship.

I think many hay have called it the Jones Act for so long, that it became the buzz word...easier to type and say also...

Might be able to catch a repo cruise up the Westcoast on any of the the Mexican riviera ships that do Alaska in the summer. Not sure if they stop at San Fran though.
