Cruise Itinerary

Departs: 4:00 PM

The Port of San Francisco annually hosts more than 80 cruise ships at the James R. Herman Cruise Terminal (Pier 27) and nearby Pier 35. The terminal is in a prime location, with easy access to popular attractions including Pier 39, Fisherman's Wharf, the Ferry Building and Union Square.

One of the most spectacular things about cruising from San Francisco is passing under the Golden Gate Bridge. Make sure you are on the lido deck for the sailaway party. It’s certainly a ‘hold your breath’ moment as the ship sails under the bridge.

Experience a world of luxurious amenities and exciting activities onboard with most ships featuring state-of-the-art fitness centers, tranquil spas, diverse dining options, and captivating live entertainment. Enjoy Movies Under the Stars®, enriching Discovery at SEA™ programs, and the award-winning Princess MedallionClass® service for a personalized touch.

Many ships offer unique attractions like The Sanctuary, a serene retreat for adults, or the dynamic Piazza with its lively atmosphere and daily performances. Kids and teens can explore dedicated youth centers, while adults unwind at chic lounges and bars. With exceptional service and attention to detail, your journey with Princess Cruises promises relaxation, adventure, and lasting memories.

Puerto Vallarta, nestled on Mexico’s Pacific coast, is famed for its vibrant arts scene and stunning natural beauty. The city balances quaint, traditional Mexican charm with the sophistication of a modern resort town. Art enthusiasts are drawn to the numerous galleries along its cobbled streets and the iconic sculptures that line the Malecón, a seaside promenade.

The area is encircled by lush jungles and clear blue waters. Beaches like Playa Los Muertos offer sunbathing and water sports, while nearby, the Vallarta Botanical Gardens provide a tranquil escape with native flora and fauna. For an authentic taste of local life, the Olas Altas Farmers Market showcases crafts, food, and music, enriching any visit to Puerto Vallarta.

Manzanillo, situated on Mexico’s Pacific coast, is renowned for its status as the "Sailfish Capital of the World," hosting international fishing tournaments that highlight its vibrant marine life. The city's dual bays, Bahía de Manzanillo and Bahía de Santiago, are lined with beautiful beaches and busy ports, reflecting a dynamic blend of leisure and commerce.

Beyond its famous fishing scene, Manzanillo’s history is evident in the city centre, where traditional architecture and local markets offer a glimpse into the area’s cultural fabric. Ecotourism in the region thrives, with the lush vegetation of the Sierra Madre Occidental providing a backdrop for activities such as bird watching and hiking.

Mazatlán, located on the Pacific coast of Mexico, is celebrated for its rich history and vibrant cultural scene. This city, known as the "Pearl of the Pacific," offers a charming blend of old-world architecture and modern amenities. The historic Centro is a maze of neoclassical buildings and cobbled streets, highlighted by the beautifully restored Angela Peralta Theater, which hosts a variety of performances throughout the year.

The city's waterfront promenade, or malecón, stretches for miles, offering spectacular ocean views and lined with statues and art installations. Mazatlán's golden beaches are perfect for water sports or simply soaking up the sun. Nearby, the lush El Quelite and the tropical islands off the coast provide excellent day-trip opportunities for nature and adventure enthusiasts.
