Our cruise departed for Hawaii and Mexico from San Diego. San Diego is a great spot to spend several pre- or post-cruise days sightseeing. The scenery, sunshine, and beaches are very special there. Visitors will also find some great attractions downtown such as the world-famous Zoo, Balboa Park, and great museums. Visitors with extra time will want to take a drive up the coast for some of California’s best scenery.
