What better way to get from Sunset Boulevard straight to Alcatraz than by ship?! It would be a ‘crime’ to miss it…

Relax and be a bit more “laid back”, as the locals would say. After all, this is California! Feel the wonders of the sunshine state on the MSC World Cruise.

The first stopover will be sunny San Diego. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, San Diego is located just a stone’s throw away from La Jolla, "the jewel", where there’s beautiful sandy beaches broken up by canyonscliffs and hills that end at Mount Soledad. Another place we suggest seeing is Torrey Pines State Reserve, a 2,000-hectare coastal park consisting of rock and lagoon areas which offers ample opportunities to hike in full nature. And if all this is not enough, San Diego Zoo and its 800 animal species are waiting for you to pop by! 
The second Californian wonder is Los Angeles, a city that needs no introduction. All we need to say is Beverly HillsSunset BoulevardWalk of FameMalibu and…Hollywood. The most difficult bit will be deciding which tour to miss out on! 
The Golden Gate Bridge will be there to welcome you when you sail into San Francisco. One of the best ways to see the bridge is to cross it on your way to Sausalito, a charming seaside resort also known as the Portofino of America. Just don’t forget to visit the city of San Fran itself to admire the extensive global influences on both the architecture and culture.
