Is it your dream to see the Pacific Coast?

The Andalusia Adult Activity Center may have the trip for you. The center is organizing a seven-night Pacific Coast cruise with an overnight in Seattle in September.

Starting in the Emerald City, travelers will spend the night in a hotel in Seattle before departing the next morning, Sept. 22, on Royal Caribbean’s Explorer of the Seas, Debbie Carter of the Adult Activity Center said.

The ship will make its first stop on Saturday in Astoria, Ore.

“Small-town pleasures define Astoria, which played a part in the American exploration of the West, thanks to Lewis and Clark,” she said. “You can explore nearby Mount St. Helens, walk the Astoria Bridge and fish for sturgeon and crab.”

On Sunday, travelers will spend the day relaxing and enjoying the cruise ship’s amenities.

On Monday, the ship will stop at the City by the Bay.

“San Francisco’s hilly streets provide some gorgeous glimpses of the Bay and its famous bridges,” she said. “This picturesque city is unique in its style and personality, and it charms everyone who comes here.”

Travelers will spend two days in San Francisco.

“From its seafood and sourdough breads to Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco is the ideal city for visitors,” she said. “Trolleys and prominent landmarks make getting around this eclectic metropolis easy.”

On Wednesday, travelers will spend a day at sea.

Thursday will be spent in Victoria, British Columbia.

“The capital of architecture and historic charm,” Carter said. “The heart of Victoria is its scenic harbor and old town.”

The cruise will end on Fri., Sept. 29, in Seattle.

The cost for the cruise pack varies from $1,949 per person to $2,339 per person depending on cabin level.

The prices are based on double occupancy.

The package includes round-trip airfare, one night of hotel accommodations in Seattle, cabin, shipboard meals, port charges, taxes and transfers in Seattle, motor coach transportation to and from airport.

Those interested in going must contact Carter at 334-222-6891, and a $250 per person deposit is due immediately.

The final payment is due June 21. Travel insurance is available.
