Cruise from Los Angeles, California

Known as the City of Angels, Los Angeles could more accurately be dubbed the City of Endless Adventures. This West Coast capital has something for every kind of traveller – interesting history, a mind-blowing food scene, beautiful landscapes and a unique mix of glitz, glamour and metropolitan grit. You’ll find it all here – sprawling mansions in star-studded neighbourhoods like Beverly Hills, Bel-Air and Calabasas, hanging red lanterns and sculpted dragons in Chinatown, traditional Mexican shopping stalls selling handmade crafts along Olvera Street – the list goes on and on. If you’re a film buff, wander down Sunset Boulevard and keep your eyes on the ground – the pavement is covered in stars dedicated to famous actors, actresses and celebrities. Head to the Santa Monica Pier for a sun-soaked beach day and a ride on the world’s only solar-powered Ferris wheel. Even if you only have a single day to spare before your cruise from Los Angeles, it’s worth setting aside some time to get to know the best of LA.
