One always has a great time in San Francisco. It is a true experience to travel under the Golden Gate Bridge and see the city in front of you. We walked allot, had Sundays in Ghirardelli Square, rode the cable car it's entire route, ate Clam chowder in a bread bowl on Fisherman's Wharf, and got truly soaked in a downpour in 57 degree weather. After returning back on board ship there was a rainbow that truly went from one side of the ship to the other.
Seattle was quite beautiful and finally we had some sun with warm temperatures around 78. We took the Boeing Factory and Museum tour and walked Pikes Market Place. The Boeing factory is very large with the largest building in the world.You see several 737's 757's 777's and 787's lined up in a row in different phases of building. This building is so large that all of Disneyland can be placed inside and there is still 13 acres left over. Quite fascinating.
Victoria is always beautiful. The weather was sunny and around 73. We visited Butchart Gardens and walked the downtown area before walking back to the ship. The Gardens are always beautiful and always seem to have something new to see. They have added a carousel and the spring flowers were just beautiful.
This is a great port and really deserves some extra time if at all possible. We have stayed here in the past. It is a beautiful clean city. Gas Town is fun to walk around and the Hop On Hop Off Bus is a great way to see the entire city including Stanley Park, Granville Market Place on the water, and China Town. Also a must see is Grouse Mountain and the Capilano Suspension Bridge.
