Pacific Coastal All-Lesbian Cruise 2020

April 23 – 29, 2020
Holland America ms Volendam
7 days from San Diego, California to Vancouver, Canada

America's Pacific Coast All-Lesbian Cruise 2020 Have you ever dreamed of sailing into San Francisco underneath the Golden Gate Bridge? Let us do the driving for you on Holland America’s ms Volendam! Join us as we stop in some of the most beautiful, LGBTQ-friendly west coast cities. Even if you’ve lived on the west coast your whole life, Olivia will make your “backyard” seem like new as you experience it with 1,400 women of Olivia.

The regions of North America’s West Coast share the mighty Pacific in common, but otherwise offer travelers very different experiences. California is home to the sunny beaches of San Diego and the glittering hills of San Francisco, with some of the state's famous wine regions as well as towering redwoods nearby. Continuing north, the rugged Oregon and Washington coasts are all about dramatic windswept grandeur. Finally, Canada’s British Columbia is a province of rain forests and fjordlike channels, where orcas swim, bears roam the coast and eagles soar overhead. Head west, and you’ll find a world that will likely both charm and awe you.

 

San Francisco lesbian cruise

 

Easygoing San Diego embodies the Southern California surfer town fantasy, with its more than 300 days of sun, mild year-round temperatures and accessible, sporty pastimes and tourist attractions. You can hike the Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve to get a glimpse of whale migrations, go sailing in the bay and, of course, surf the famous swells of Del Mar, Oceanside and La Jolla (among many other superb spots). But the sixth-largest city in the United States is surprisingly nuanced, with distinctive neighborhoods: Old Town, North Park, Point Loma and Coronado are all within a few miles of the port, while the bustling Gaslamp Quarter and Little Italy are within walking distance.

 

America Lesbian cruise holidays

 

Once a trading post and a rough-and-tumble sawmilling settlement, today modern Vancouver, Canada is many things. It’s a bustling seaport, a hub for outdoor enthusiasts looking for active things to do in Vancouver, an ethnically diverse metropolis and Hollywood of the North. Hemmed in by mountains and sea, Vancouver seduces visitors with its combination of urban sophistication and laid-back attitude against a backdrop of glass towers and modern sights and plentiful green spaces.

 

Vancouver Lesbian cruise

 

Vancouver's culinary and cocktail scene is on the rise—and its excellent restaurants and hopping bars have a distinctively local stamp on them. If you are looking for where to go in Vancouver for music, theater and the arts, they are thriving in the city’s many museums, galleries and performance venues. Beyond the downtown attractions in Vancouver, days of exploration and sightseeing await among the colorful suburbs, unspoiled islands and the vast, rugged wilderness.
