Got an idea. Florida has an abundance of cruises, but on the West Coast not much at all, Mexican Riv and Baja. Once in awhile Hawaii.
So let us put our heads together and come up with an itinerary for the West Coastal cruises. More than a reposition.
How about we start with this?
San Diego, Los Angelus, San Francisco, Columbia River, Portland, Seattle, Victoria and Vancouver, of course with sea time inbetween.
Anyone else to add ... subtract? Extend for more days what ever you like. It is your itinerary.
I think that your itinerary from San Diego to Vancouver sounds marvelous. Why don't you suggest this to some of the major cruise lines. Florida is flooded with cruises, as most people do prefer the hot weather itineraries. Living in the northeast, I remember the wonderful cruises that Home Lines offered on the Oceanic from New York. My husband and I did a 16 day Gala Caribbean sailing in January of 1979 on her, and many cruises later, we still fondly remember this cruise. The first couple of days out and the last few days on the return were cool, often cold, but the ship had a magnadrome lido deck which we sun worshippers enjoyed. 7-10 day cruises started to become more popular, for various reasons, and it was no longer feasible to run them from New York. The New York piers are now deserted in the winter time. Florida offers many itineraries for 7 day cruises or longer in a warmer climate, which appeals to a larger audience. Year round cruises from San Diego up the coast to Canada may not become popular but it would be a wonderful spring to fall sailing, I think. Fabulous idea!!! Happy Cruising!
It would be nice, but there are gambling laws to be considered. The ship would have to either start in Ensenada, or go to Ensenada from San Diego , then North to Los Angeles. San Diego has a beautiful port which is under used. We need a ship that calls San Diego Home!!!!
