As an Angeleno, I was certain our forever drought would prove impossible for a river cruise to ever take place in this state, but American Cruise Lines delivers on the doubt, operating its first-ever California river cruise out of San Francisco next month – the first ever in 80 years with an eight-day itinerary.
President and CEO of American Cruise Lines shared, “American Cruise Lines has had San Francisco and wine country in mind for many years,” adding, “The California Delta is one of the most beautiful areas in the U.S. to explore by riverboat. Many have visited wine country, but few can say they have cruised it.”
What destinations will the cruise visit?
San Francisco Bay
Wine tasting in Napa
Honey tasting in Sacramento
Haggin Museum in Stockton
San Joaquin River
In order to sail this itinerary, American Cruise Lines is currently moving its ship, American Jazz from the Mississippi River to the Panama Canal, after which it will sail up the west coast of Central and North America. Featuring all-balcony accommodations, the ship can accommodate 99 passengers.
American Jazz departs for the first time on February 24 and will continue sailing throughout the spring season. Following a short summer break, sailings will resume in the fall. Reservations are now open for the San Francisco Bay and California river cruise starting at $5,990 per person.
