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, with some of the state’s famous wine regions as well as towering redwoods nearby. 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.
Each day onboard offers delicious dining options, world-class entertainment and enriching activities.

VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA / Of all the cities in Canada, Victoria may be the furthest from Great Britain, but it has the most British vibe. Between sipping afternoon tea, visiting flower gardens and castles and stopping in at pubs, one could easily forget about the Pacific Ocean lapping at the other side of Vancouver Island. The influence of the First Nations culture is also strong here in Victoria, with totem poles taking a front-and-center position on the Inner Harbour and in Beacon Hill Park. Other waves of immigration besides that of the English are evident in the streets of Canada’s oldest Chinatown. Whale-watching cruises and sightseeing floatplanes take off and return from their excursions at the Inner Harbour and government buildings, museums, and the grand Fairmont Empress provide a dignified welcome. Just around the point, Fisherman’s Wharf offers a lively contrast with working fishing boats, barking harbor seals and busy seafood restaurants serving up the catch of the day. Take time for a jaunt to the famous Butchart Gardens, a truly stunning show garden developed on the site of a depleted quarry.
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA / 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'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.
