Santa Clarita, Calif. (PRWEB) March 13, 2014
Seven diverse Princess Cruises ships will sail throughout Alaska’s waters in 2015, on a program offering passengers the opportunity to explore the best of the state by both land and sea.
New this season, Ruby Princess makes her Alaska debut, joining sister ship Crown Princess to offer cruises from Seattle. The youngest Princess vessel on the West Coast, Ruby Princess will offer an additional amenity-filled option on Inside Passage itineraries. Pacific Princess will sail on the line’s signature “Voyage of the Glaciers” itineraries for the first time, to offer an intimate cruise experience to complement the route’s dramatic scenery. The ship joins Grand Princess, Star Princess and Coral Princess on this favorite route, which includes two glacier experiences. Rounding out the program, Golden Princess will take over Inside Passage sailings from San Francisco.
The company’s line-up of land and sea vacation packages will not only take passengers to the Heart of Alaska, but also adds two Canadian Rockies tour options. Whether passengers opt to explore Alaska’s magnificent interior, or the majestic Rocky Mountains, they will combine their tour with a seven-day “Voyage of the Glaciers” cruise. In Alaska, Princess cruisetours include the company’s exclusive wilderness lodges, rail and motorcoach travel, plus the top two attractions in the state – Glacier Bay National Park and Denali National Park, where visitors spend at least one night exploring the wonders of this area.
“Each year we earn industry accolades for our Alaska program, including ‘best cruise line in Alaska’ from Travel Weekly for seven consecutive years,” said Jan Swartz, president of Princess Cruises. “Our cruise program in this destination combines some of the most spectacular scenery in the world with exciting on-shore adventures plus amenity-filled ships for an unforgettable vacation.”
