Discover Alaska with Princess Cruises


Alaska is a stunning destination and there’s no better way to explore it than via a cruise. For the past 50 years, Princess Cruises has been taking more people than any other cruise line to America’s largest state, and Travel Weekly has recognised it as the best Cruise Line in Alaska 15 times. Read the article below to find out why.



‘North to Alaska’
To travel is to get immersed in a different culture, and that’s exactly what the North to Alaska enrichment program does. Princess Cruises wants their guests to experience everything that the great land has to offer, from enjoying fresh Alaskan seafood to meeting guest speakers from the Discovery Channel. Hear the tales of Alaskan photographers, mountain climbers and lumberjacks, and snap a picture when some of skagway’s newest sled puppies come aboard.



Shore excursions
Don’t just witness Alaska from the ship – see it up close with a variety of award-winning shore excursions! With Princess Cruises you can Kayak through a fjord, experience a helicopter landing on a glacier, attend a native dance performance or watch the bears fishing for salmon in their natural habitat. Whether you’re looking for sightseeing activities or outdoor adventures, there is something for everyone.



Range of itineraries
Princess knows that not all travellers are the same, which is why they offer an array of cruises and cruisetours to match everyone’s needs. Cruisetours combine a seven-day voyage of the glaciers cruise with 3 or more nights of exploring Alaska by land. You’ll stay at exclusive Princess Wilderness Lodges near legendary national parks and you’ll have access to the ‘Direct to the Wilderness’ Alaska rail service, which will take you from the ship to your accommodation without any hassles. Choose between the ‘On Your Own’, ‘Denali Explorer’, ‘Off the Beaten Path’ and ‘Connoisseur’ packages to discover some of the state’s top atractions.



50th anniversary initiatives
On top of everything, Princess has introduced several initiatives to mark the 50th anniversary of adventure and innovation in Alaska. They will be offered alongside Princess ‘North to Alaska’ programme and they include new excursions, the introduction of the ‘Glacier Tea’ cocktail, a special beer tasting featuring blends from the Juneau-based Brewing Company, an onboard Northern Lights planetarium in the theatre of every ship, and a mini museum exhibit featuring images from the 50 years Princess has sailed to the destination.
