American Cruise Lines announced on 25JUL its first-ever California cruise. Beginning in 2023, the small ship cruise line will offer a new 8-Day San Francisco Bay cruise which explores the City on the Bay, Napa Valley, and the San Joaquin Valley.

Operating round trip from San Francisco, American’s new small ships will transport guests from San Francisco into the heart of wine country along the Napa River. The new itinerary stops in San Francisco, Napa, Vallejo, Stockton, and Sacramento, and cruises San Francisco Bay, San Pablo Bay, the Napa River, and the San Joaquin River.

2023 departure dates for American Cruise Lines’ new 8-Day San Francisco Bay cruises are: 17, 24FEB & 03 and 10MAR aboard American Jazz.

“Exploring this beautiful region of Northern California by riverboat will provide a new opportunity for our guests to discover the Bay area and the Napa Valley in an exceptional way…many have driven there, but not many can say they have actually cruised through wine country,” said Charles B. Robertson, President & CEO of American Cruise Lines.

American’s new San Francisco Bay itinerary aims to highlight the region’s historical, cultural, and geographical influences that gave rise to the seaside city of San Francisco, as well as the vineyards and agricultural communities present throughout the Bay area and its surrounding valleys today.

8-Day San Francisco Bay cruises will encompass a range of experiences, including a scenic sail of San Francisco Bay passing by the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and Treasure Island. Local San Francisco experiences include visits to Fisherman’s Wharf, Ghirardelli Square and Alcatraz. Special experiences include a Napa Valley Winery experience, and a NASCAR-style driving experience at the Stockton 99 Speedway. The cruise also offers a guided tour of Old Sacramento’s underground city and port, and a visit to the California Railroad Museum, home to 5 full-size steam locomotives including Central Pacific No. 1 Governor Stanford, as well as many exhibits including one honoring the Chinese contribution to the building of the Transcontinental Railroad, and the infamous Golden Spike which commemorated the completion of the celebrated railroad in 1869.

On board throughout the cruise, guests can enjoy daily Sunrise Yoga and unique Wine Country experiences. Special wine presentations offer guests opportunities to learn, sip, and savor regional varietals. American’s culinary team will also give onboard cooking demonstrations on local Northern Californian cuisine and each guest will receive a local cookbook to take home.
