Cruises from San Diego

Easygoing San Diego embodies the Southern California surfer town fantasy, with its more than 300 days of sun, mild year-round temperatures and accessible outdoor activities. 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. But the sixth-largest city in the United States also has some surprising neighborhoods: Old Town, North Park, Point Loma and Coronado are all within a few miles of the port, while the Gaslamp Quarter and Little Italy are also within walking distance. Discover all before you cruise out of San Diego with Holland America Cruise Line.

Things to do in San Diego

Balboa Park

The largest urban cultural park in the nation began as a parcel of 566 hectares (1,400 acres) of land set aside by civic leaders in 1868. It now houses 15 museums, performing-arts venues, incredible gardens and the world-famous San Diego Zoo. You can spend days visiting all of its attractions, including the United Nations Building, Spanish Village Art Center and Alcazar Garden.

Gaslamp Quarter

The historic center of San Diego, with its Victorian architecture and walkable blocks of shopping, dining and art galleries, is a pleasant two-mile stroll (or two-stop trolley ride) from the Port of San Diego. Take in incredible views of the Coronado Bridge and San Diego Bay from one of the many rooftop bars, have lunch alfresco or even check out a baseball game at Petco Park.

La Jolla Village

The affluent coastal village of La Jolla is known for its fabulous real estate, beautiful beaches and sophisticated dining and shopping around Girard Avenue and Prospect Street. One of the best ways to see La Jolla is from the water, via kayak: Spot some dolphins, enjoy the views of the dramatic shoreline or take a tour of Sunny Jim Sea Cave.
