If they had offered ten stars then thats what I would have given. Sailing under the Golden Gate Bridge into the bay with Sausalito to the left, Alcatraz dead ahead, San Francisco with its cable cars to the right. Yes, heavenly. The ship ties-up next to a tram stop from which you can turn left and travel inexpensively into the city (six minutes) or, turn right and visit the various Pier 39 attractions and find the terminus for the cable car (five minutes). Take a tour, cross the bridge, visit Sausalito, go to Alcatraz, ride the cable car...fill your boots!

We always enjoyed San Francisco We took the hop on hop off bus and went to Muir Wood. We really loved walking along the water way by Fisherman's Wharf. There was just a lot to see and do.

We went 3 days early to see the city and liked it a lot. Lots to see. City felt safe. Lots of great public transportation. We rented a car, but shouldn't of. Parking very expensive. At least $12 minimum. Other than that, loved it. Would love to go back someday.

Hop on hop off bus tour is a good choice but pay attention to where you get off because there are no signs to tell you where to pick bus up again. It is an easy walk from the ship to Fisherman's Wharf.
