Welcome to our Coastal Vistas Blog.
Our trip begins with a four-night stay in San Francisco. To this day, San Francisco remains one of our most favorite cities from around the world. We were fortunate to live in the Bay Area for almost four years between 1987 and 1991 and we have fond memories of our time there. We have visited this area several times since 1991 and we look forward to each and every visit.
After our pre-cruise stay, we will board Crystal Serenity for what will be our shortest cruise ever. Ironically, we spent close to six months on-board Crystal Serenity between mid-December, 2014 until the end of May, 2015 and late July and mid- August, 2015. This time we will spend only five days on-board Serenity.
We chose this cruise because it fit into a short travel window available to us. At the conclusion of this voyage in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, Crystal Serenity goes into dry-dock. One of the major goals of this dry dock is to prepare Crystal Serenity for its August, 2016 sailing of the Northwest Passage. We will be on-board for the Northwest Passage, along with the cruise which precedes it, rejoining Serenity in Vancouver.
We plan to post shortly before the start of our cruise and will post daily once our trip begins.
