SACRAMENTO, Calif. — A new cruise line starting in San Francisco will guide passengers on a Northern California excursion, with stops in Sacramento, Napa, Vallejo and Stockton.

American Cruise Lines this month announced its first California cruise, which features a two-day stop in Sacramento and a guided tour of Old Sacramento’s waterfront and underground city, according to the news release.

The cruise is set to take off in the winter of 2023.

The San Francisco Bay Cruise is an eight-day and seven-night journey that includes five stops in Northern California.

Some highlights of the trip include a winery experience in the heart of Napa Valley, visits to the Fisherman’s Wharf, Ghirardelli Square and Alcatraz in San Francisco, and a “NASCAR-style driving experience” on the Stockton 99 Speedway.

“Exploring this beautiful region of Northern California by riverboat will provide a new opportunity for our guests to discover the Bay Area and the Napa Valley in an exceptional way … many have driven there, but not many can say they have actually cruised through wine country, ” said Charles B. Robertson, President & CEO of American Cruise Line in the news release.

In Sacramento, guests will have the opportunity to learn more about the region’s history and the Gold Rush era. The stop in the state’s capital includes tours of California Railroad Museum and the Old Sacramento Waterfront — home to many historic museums and sites.
