You can rest assured that while Princess cruises are easy on your wallet, they aren’t lacking in adventure or diversity. A 10-day trip from San Francisco to Alaska starts at $1,699 per person, for example, and there’s plenty to do and see along the way.
During your cruise, you’ll visit five ports, including Victoria, British Columbia. On the agenda for the day: a stroll through Butchart Gardens, a bucket-list-worthy spot that features 55 acres filled with colorful flowers, enchanting walkways and photo opportunities at every turn.
In Skagway, Alaska, you can meet (and cuddle with) a lovable team of sled dogs, pan for gold and take a ride on the historic White Pass Railway. Or, for something more active, go rock climbing, take a bicycle tour through the rainforest or hit up the ziplines.
If you have only a few days and couple hundred bucks to spare, book a three-night jaunt from Vancouver to Los Angeles. The starting rate is dirt cheap: $198 per person.
