Alaska

Untouched Untamed Unforgettable

Join us on a Princess Alaska Cruise Tour

Denali Tour: Sept 10, 2024 / Cruise: Sept 14, 2024

Alaska is an awe-inspiring and unspoiled wilderness of immense scale and diversity. It's where passion for the outdoors is set free, and appreciation for unspoiled beauty deepens. Alaska is a land of epic emotions.


Whether you want to connect with the outdoors, explore towns rich in character and history, or watch brown bears fish in the world's most extensive salmon run, this is an Alaska cruise. You'll experience scenery that will stop you in your tracks, and you'll not just see but feel the majestic mountains, glaciers, fjords, crystal-clear lakes, and waterfalls.


Your vacation kicks off as you fly into Anchorage on Friday, the 13th of September. It's a day ahead of your cruise, and Anchorage is a place where city life and the wild blend seamlessly. There's no need to choose one over the other because they're both a part of daily life here. Anchorage lives under the constant glow of the midnight sun and the dancing auroras.


You'll have an evening to enjoy and soak in the unique vibes of Anchorage. Then, on Saturday, return to the airport and board your Princess Coach Bus for a delightful one-hour ride to Whittier. This journey takes you through beautiful backcountry landscapes, passing by breathtaking waterfalls and tranquil lakes. And all of this is just a prelude to meeting your cruise ship in Whittier, where your board your ship.


On this 7-day cruise of the Glaciers, we sail past the iconic glaciers of Glacier Bay National Park*, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Add depth to your experience with a second viewing at Hubbard Glacier —the longest tidewater glacier in North America. We'll visit the towns of Icy Strait, Juneau, and Ketchikan before ending our adventure in Vancouver.


Want to see it all? In addition to the cruise, there is an optional four-day Pre-Cruise Land Package to Denali, the largest mountain in North America. (This package includes all transportation and lodging.)
