Taking a Princess Cruise to Alaska
Whether it’s Glacier Bay, College Fjord, Hubbard Glacier, Endicott Arm and Dawes Glacier, or Tracy Arm Fjord, every Princess cruise to Alaska includes at least one glacier viewing experience.
Sailings stop at Juneau, Ketchikan, and Skagway, with all northbound Voyage of the Glaciers and seven-night Inside Passage itineraries including a “More Ashore” late-night stopover in Juneau.
The line’s “North to Alaska” program includes local artists, writers, specialists, and others who share their skill and expertise with guests, as well as local seafood and restaurant meals offered on board and other unique experiences not found on other cruises.
Princess Cruises has its own wilderness resorts in Alaska, which are located just outside the gates of many national parks. The Princess Connoisseur Cruisetour is a 17-night cruise that includes 10 nights on land, including two nights at each of the five Princess Wilderness Lodges and excursions to five national parks.
The cruise company also provides Direct-to-the-Wilderness train service, which transports guests from the ship to its Denali-based resorts through the heart of Alaska.
