We are planning a cruise in May on the Radiance of the Seas from San Diego to Vancouver with stops in Catalina Island, San Francisco, Seattle, and Victoria. What shore activities do you recommend to do with our 16 month old daughter in these ports? She has a high energy level and likes to be "on the move". Any help would be appreciated!
Re: RCCL Pacific Coast Excursions with 16 month old
I'm the family cruise editor here. The following are some suggestions:
San Fran: Bay Area Discovery Museum: geared for kids two and up; sounds like there might be something for your child at the Tot Spot. Also take her to the waterfront/Fisherman's Pier to see the noisy seals. Lastly, she might enjoy a cable car ride.
Seattle: SEattle Aquarium might be fun for her to see the fish. There's also a Seattle Children's Museum -- check out the toddler area called Little Lagoon.
Vancouver: You could spend a whole day in Stanley Park. The Vancouver Aquarium is there along with beaches, playgrounds, horse and carriage rides, rose gardens, etc. It's a great spot for families.
Hope this helps. I'd love to hear from you after your cruise to see what you did do with y our toddler. I have a 16 month too as well as a 9 year old.
