(38) Cruising the United States West Coast and Mexican Riviera

Cruising the United States West Coast and Mexican Riviera Cruises along the Pacific Northwest coast of the United States are typically repositioning cruises when cruise lines move their ships to or from Alaska. These cruises usually begin or end in Vancouver with ports of call along northwest California, Oregon and Washington coasts. Other west coast cruises originate in San Francisco, Los Angeles or San Diego with calls along the southern California and to ports like Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Acapulco in Mexico.

  • Best Bets: Parasail over Los Arcos in Cabo San Lucas. View the Papantla Flyers in Mazatlan and breathtaking cliff divers in Acapulco.
  • Best Time: Cruise the Pacific Northwest in May or October. Cruise the Mexican Riviera between November and March.
