Norwegian’s Encore is the final ship in the Cruise line’s Breakaway Plus Class. Fly from Australia and enjoy 3 days in vibrant Los Angeles before embarking on the Norwegian Encore. Get your camera ready to capture awe-inspiring views on this northbound journey including cruising under the Golden Gate Bridge. Make sure to try the fresh bread bowl filled with warm chowder, a true San Francisco treat.  “Colourful” barely begins to describe the beauty of Victoria. Walk the boardwalk along the Inner Harbour, visiting Bastion Square or explore its tree-lined neighbourhoods on a bicycle if your feeling like some well earned exercise. Your next stop is Seattle home of Amazon and Microsoft and Pike Place Market. The renowned glassblowing artist, Dale Chihuly, has an indoor-outdoor museum that will leave you speechless. Disembark in Vancouver and spend your last 3 days in the friendly city. Queen Elizabeth Park is a 130-acre civic arboretum accented with sculptures by modern artist Henry Moore and well worth a visit.
