American Cruise Lines Soon To Establish The First California Route

American Cruise Lines will soon establish a California route. Its expected launch date is in 2023.

The round trip will center around San Francisco Bay. Passengers will explore more than just the city, though; they’ll also experience the delights of Napa Valley and the San Joaquin Valley.

As stated in the recently released itinerary, stops along the way include Napa, Sacramento, Stockton, and Vallejo. In addition to traversing San Francisco Bay, the boat will head through the Napa River, the San Joaquin River, and San Pablo Bay.

According to Charles B. Robertson, president of the cruise line, the company aims to “expand the possibilities” of domestic cruises with small ships. He also noted that few people have ever cruised in wine country.

Passengers can expect to enjoy experiences related to cultural and historical influences in the region. They’ll also visit vineyards and agricultural areas.

That’s not all, though.

The ship will pass the Golden Gate Bridge and Treasure Island. Alcatraz, Fisherman’s Wharf, and Ghirardelli Square are some of the locations passengers will have a chance to explore.

Other fun things to do will include a Stockton 99 Speedway driving experience reminiscent of NASCAR, visits to a Napa Valley winery, and a stop at the California Railroad Museum.

Underground tours of Old Sacramento, which still hides an older version of parts of the city beneath it, will be another option.

Early birds might enjoy the ship’s Sunrise Yoga class, and foodies will appreciate onboard cooking demonstrations from professional chefs.
