Homeport in San Diego

Time is an irreplaceable resource; time that guests can spend onboard or time creating memories in a new and exciting destination is the most valuable offer we can make to your passengers.

Not only is San Diego advantageously positioned to homeport from but, the cruise ship terminals are located in beautiful Downtown San Diego, offering lots to do and easy access to transportation in order to do it.  The Santa Fe Depot is only one block from the cruise ship terminals offering convenient access to light-rail and Amtrak service. The San Diego International Airport is a scenic two mile drive along the North Embarcadero to the B Street Pier. The guests’ vacation begins the moment they step off the plane because; great homeports should also make great destinations.
