starprincess1MAY 2009. Have you always thought about taking a cruise, but were hesitant about putting all that money down, then getting on board and not liking it? Here’s your chance to test the waters…for a dime! Princess Cruises (a very nice upscale line) is offering a three-day, two-night cruise departing San Francisco on Thurs May 7 and arriving in Vancouver Sat May 8.  (on the Star Princess, pictured) The cheapest cabins (interior, no window) are going for just $175 per person (including all fees and taxes).  If you want to splurge, go for a suite with balcony for just $325 per person. Return flights on Alaska Air are now just $175 one-way from Vancouver.

Imagine departing from the Embarcadero at 4 pm Thurs, waving goodbye to your friends on shore, and then sailing out under the GG Bridge as the sun sets on a warm May night. A gorgeous day at sea on Friday. Arrive in Vancouver at 10 a.m. on Saturday with enough time to take in some sites, and then buzz home to the Bay in the afternoon. Hmmmm. Sounds like a fun little adventurette! And cheap, too.
