Our Alaska itineraries will bring you face to face with at least one of these icy mammoths in places like stunning Glacier Bay National Park — a UNESCO World Heritage Site and named a Cruise Wonder of the World by Condé Nast Traveler — or breathtaking Tracy Arm Fjord, and farther north at College Fjord or Hubbard Glacier.

Inside Passage and Alaska Cruise Ports

Sailing into ports along the Inside Passage, you’ll get a glimpse into the welcoming personality of the Great Land, and a taste of the fascinating gold rush history that has left its mark on the region’s streets, saloons and storefronts. Contrasting the rustic authenticity of Alaska’s towns is the regal British influence of delightful Victoria, B.C., a stop on select Princess® Alaskan cruises.

National Parks

Here you’ll find some of America’s most stunning national gems — awe-inspiring Denali National Park, home to North America’s tallest peak, 20,310-foot Denali; Wrangell-St. Elias National Park, larger than the country of Switzerland; Glacier Bay National Park with towering Margerie Glacier; and beautiful Kenai Fjords National Park, with its glaciers and abundant marine life.

Our award-winning North to Alaska program, brings local personalities, culture and cuisine on board to immerse you in all things Alaska. Watch actual lumberjacks in action, hear from real Alaskans like best-selling “Tales of the Wild” author Nick Jans, dine on fresh Alaska seafood, meet National Park Rangers and naturalists, and make friends with Alaska’s next sled dog class with Puppies in the Piazza.

Shore Excursions

There are certain experiences that are uniquely Alaskan — salmon fishing in a quiet river, watching a family of bears forage for berries, or admiring a Native craftsman carving a totem pole. That’s why Princess offers optional excursions for every interest, and with More Ashore calls in Juneau on many sailings, you can extend your day with more time in port and experience even more of this historic town.


How many times in your life have you had the opportunity to see moose grazing in vast meadows, whales frolicking in glistening waters and bears in their native habitat? In Alaska, all that is possible — including glimpsing Denali National Park’s Big Five: brown bears, wolves, moose, Dall sheep and caribou.

Anchorage (Whittier), Alaska

Whittier, approximately 65 miles southeast of Anchorage, lies nestled at the base of the Chugach Mountains bordering Passage Canal. Established as a World War II port for cargo and troops of the Alaska Command, Whittier remained activated until 1960. Today, Whittier’s economy and its 290 residents rely largely on the fishing industry, the port and, increasingly, on tourism.


Once accessible only by boat or via a war-era railway tunnel, The Anton Anderson Memorial Tunnel was recently enhanced to accommodate highway traffic as well, making it the longest highway/rail tunnel in North America at 2.5 miles.

Named for the poet John Greenleaf Whittier, the community is also the gateway to spectacular Prince William Sound, with its magnificent tidewater glaciers and abundant marine life.

Whittier tours are available to passengers on back-to-back voyages who will stay onboard the ship and cruise back to Vancouver as well as guests ending their cruise in Whittier wiith an evening flight out of Anchorage on the day of disembarkation or an overnight in Anchorage after their cruise.

Vancouver, British Columbia

It seems unlikely that a character named "Gassy Jack" Deighton would be responsible for one of the most beautiful cities on the continent. But that’s history for you.


During the gold rush, Gassy Jack saw a chance to make money from the hordes of miners on their way to the Yukon. The saloon he built became the focus of the shanty town known as Gastown. From that ragtag group of shacks, modern Vancouver was born. The provincial government persuaded settlers to change the name of the town to Vancouver, after Captain George Vancouver, who sailed the region’s waters in 1792.

Canada’s third-largest city, Vancouver is a cosmopolitan place with a European feel and a personality all its own. It’s a community with a rich ethnic mix - including the second-largest Chinatown in North America - and stunningly beautiful parks.

Los Angeles, California

The City of Angels always hovers between dream and reality. Once a near-forgotten colonial outpost, the pueblo metamorphosed into an agrarian paradise before reinventing itself as a movie colony. Perhaps no other city owes so much to the technological innovations of the 20th century, from the automobile to the airplane. Little wonder that LA is oft described as the "dream machine."


In LA, reinvention is a way of life. Yet this talent for change has created a city with a rich ethnic diversity and a sizzling culture. LA is the source for trends that migrate across the country and then the world. Where else can you enjoy a Thai taco or munch on a kosher burrito? Or travel from downtown’s high rises to the beaches of Malibu, shopping in Beverly Hills along the way?

Skagway, Alaska

Skagway was the gateway to the gold fields for the thousands who flocked to Alaska and the Yukon with the hope of striking it rich. Skagway may have boasted the shortest route to the Klondike, but it wasn’t the easiest. Over 100 years ago, the White Pass route through the Coast Mountains and the shorter but steeper Chilkoot Trail were used by countless stampeders. Many a would-be miner perished on the treacherous Chilkoot Trail.


The gold rush was a boon and by 1898, Skagway was Alaska’s largest town with a population of about 20,000. Hotels, saloons, dance halls and gambling houses prospered. But when the gold yield dwindled in 1900, so did the population as miners quickly shifted to new finds in Nome.

Today, Skagway has less than 1,000 residents. It still retains the flavor of the gold rush era.

Juneau, Alaska

In 1880, it was slow going for Joe Juneau and Richard Harris as they searched for gold with the help of Native guides. After climbing mountains, forging streams and facing countless difficulties, they found nuggets "as large as beans." From their discovery came three of the largest gold mines in the world. By the end of World War II, more than $150 million in gold had been mined. Eventually the mines closed, but the town Joe Juneau founded became the capital of Alaska and the business of gold was replaced by the business of government.


Some 30,000 people live in Juneau. Its total area makes it one of the biggest towns, in size, in the world. Only Kiruna, Sweden, and Sitka, Alaska, exceed Juneau’s 3,248 square miles. Today Juneau is famous not only for gold and government but also for its breathtakingly beautiful glaciers and stunning views of both water and mountains.

Ketchikan, Alaska

Ketchikan is known as Alaska’s "First City" because it’s the first major community travelers come to as they journey north. Located on an island, Ketchikan began life as an Indian fishing camp. The name Ketchikan comes from a Tlingit phrase that means "eagle with spread-out wings," a reference to a waterfall near town.


In the early 1900s, when gold was Alaska’s claim to fame, fishing and timber industries were established in Ketchikan. The growth of these industries helped make this Inside Passage port Alaska’s fourth-largest city.

Visitors to Ketchikan will be intrigued by its rich Native heritage, which includes the world’s oldest collection of totem poles at Totem Heritage Center. The Haida, Tlingit and Tsimshian are all a part of the city’s colorful history. Ketchikan, with its abundance of salmon, is also a sportfishing paradise.

Victoria, British Columbia

Victoria exudes old-world charm and fragrant and colorful flowers are everywhere. Founded in 1843 by James Douglas of the Hudson’s Bay Company, the city was first known as Fort Victoria. By 1848, Vancouver Island was a British colony and Victoria was its capital.


In 1858, Victoria was a tent city and the base for some 25,000 prospectors on their way to the Frasier River gold fields. When Vancouver Island was incorporated with mainland British Columbia in 1868, Victoria became the capital of the entire province.

Although it’s a port city, Victoria is not as industrially oriented as Vancouver. The harbors, especially Inner Harbour, are dotted with pleasure craft, ferries and floatplanes. The city is renowned for its beautiful gardens, charming houses and very British feel.

Seattle has hosted two World’s Fairs (1909 and 1962) and is the birthplace of two modern marvels, Boeing and Microsoft.
