Cruising to San Diego, California

California's largest coastal city straddles the Pacific Ocean, its gleaming lights reflected beautifully off the waves at night. An ideal travel destination, it boasts a long history, thriving nightlife, outdoor culture and spectacular ethnic diversity.

But despite its size, which might seem overbearing at first sight, the metropolis is permeated by a rather laid-back atmosphere that is only conducive to the holiday feel. All this adds up to the perfect destination for your cruise trip.

Historical fanatics will want to visit the Old Town of Mission Valley, the site of the first Spanish settlement in California. Many seek out artefacts of old and a taste of Mexican culture here. Beach enthusiasts, meanwhile, will find themselves gravitating towards Mission Beach and Pacific Beach, which boast a plethora of shops, restaurants and nightlife venues between them.

For picturesque coastline, head to La Jolla, which is also home to golf courses and museums if you get bored of taking in the sun.
