SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (PRWEB) December 29, 2011
Princess Cruises has once again received top honors as the “Best Cruise Line in Alaska” in the annual Travel Weekly Readers’ Choice Awards. This marks the fifth year in a row, and the eighth time, that the company has been recognized with this distinction by the respected magazine’s travel agent readers for its Alaska cruises and cruisetours.
“We’re delighted and honored that the true travel experts – travel agents – continue to recognize our Alaska cruise program each year,” said Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises executive vice president. “We’re passionate about the Great Land and sharing it with visitors, and this award acknowledges that we offer the best Alaska vacation experience in the industry.”
Drawing upon more than 40 years of experience cruising the 49th state, Princess Cruises offers Gulf of Alaska and Inside Passage sailings and an extensive selection of cruisetours, with accommodations at five Princess-owned and operated, scenic wilderness lodges. The company’s immersive Alaska experience is created by combining a seven-day Gulf of Alaska cruise, including two distinct glacier viewing opportunities, with a land tour ranging from three to nine nights, along with travel by glass-domed railcars.
In addition to experiencing the state’s charming port towns, spectacular scenery and marine life while on a Princess ship, passengers who extend their vacation with a land tour will explore Alaska’s dramatic interior including at least one night among the wilderness of Denali National Park, one of the state’s top attractions. And only Princess offers Direct-to-the-Wilderness rail travel to give visitors more time in the Denali area.
Princess’ 2012 Alaska cruise season features seven ships, including a fourth ship added to the Gulf of Alaska route, and three ships sailing the Inside Passage. They will depart on 122 voyages, and travelers can choose from more than 20 different cruisetour options.
