Santa Barbara is a lovely community with mostly mild warm weather. We chose the trolley ride which gave us an overview of the town.

In Santa Barbara we tendered into the marina. One of the tenders lives just under the balcony of our mini suite D608 so we woke up to it being lowered into the water on winches. We’re pretty good natured about that kind of thing because we’re on a ship. And happy to be going into Santa Barbara. The tenders have an open upper deck, which I like more than being squeezed into the hold. Once ashore we took one of the new electric city busses as far up State Street as they would take us, which cost 50 cents. From there we took a leisurely stroll thru some lovely upscale neighborhoods to the mission. We took an Uber back from the mission to the middle of State for $8 and had tacos and margaritas at Sand Bar. Then on to wine tasting in the Funk Zone, which is the newly revitalized industrial area of lower State nearest the ship. Read Less

Beautiful little town, great lunch, beautiful scenery as we drove to a winery and enjoyed wine tasting and cupcakes. Tendering was very well done.

Santa Barbara is a beautiful city to visit however I have to warn you that this last cruise it took Princess forever to get us ashore. By time we got off the ship we had to get back on. We lost so much time at that port.

Bought the trolley tickets from the visitor center. The driver was very nice and made a special stop to drop all cruise passenger off by the tender pier.

Went on the trolley bus and apart from having a side on seat rather than forward facing was informative and he dropped us off in the Main Street so we could meander our way back in our own time to the ship.
