"Thrill to white thunder in Glacier Bay, marvel at sunlight at midnight and close-ups of whales, eagles and caribou.

Delight in Mt. McKinley's majesty and meadows carpeted with wildflowers. Amid unsurpassed grandeur and serenity, the true wilderness of Denali is calling.

Catch sight of a humpback whale or wolf pups frolicking in the snow. Alaska is as rustic and romantic as one could ever imagine. Whales, Wonders and Wilderness"

Alaska's Top Attractions...

Glaciers
Many people travel to Alaska just for a chance to see her famous glaciers. And with good reason. There's no other natural spectacle like witnessing a towering river of otherworldly blue ice and hearing the thunderous crack when an iceberg calves into the tidewater.
Wildlife
How many times in life have you had the opportunity to see moose grazing in meadows, eagles nesting in treetops, whales frolicking in glistening waters and bears roaming in their native habitat? On an Alaska vacation, all that is possible - including glimpsing Denali National Park's Big Five: brown bears, wolves, moose, Dall sheep and caribou on a cruisetour.
Mountains
The focal point of Denali National Park is 20,310-foot Denali, the tallest peak in North America. Princess cruisetours take you close to this inspiring wonder as well as other breathtaking ranges such as Wrangell-St. Elias.

Depart from these ports

 

Seattle
The "Emerald City" has a legacy of vision and strength. Known for its rainy climate, Seattle actually averages less annual rainfall than many East Coast cities. Spectacular natural surroundings like Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains, plus convenient weekend departures, make Seattle a great place to start or end your Alaska cruise.
San Francisco
San Francisco has it all: a colorful history, superb restaurants, sophisticated museums, world-class shopping and that iconic air of romance and abandon that's part of the allure of the city.
Vancouver
One of Canada's largest cities, Vancouver is a cosmopolitan place with a personality all its own. It's a community with a rich ethnic mix - including an impressive Chinatown - and stunningly beautiful parks.
Los Angeles
The "City of Angels" always hovers between dream and reality. Once a near-forgotten colonial outpost, it's now the hub for movies and the entertainment industry. This talent for change has created a city with a rich ethnic diversity and a vibrant culture.
Anchorage ( Whittier port )
Captains James Cook and George Vancouver were the first Europeans to explore this region, but it took the Alaska Railroad to put it on the map. Today, Alaska's largest city is equal parts civilized pleasures and natural splendor. How many places offer the opportunity to tour a museum and go bear watching in the very same day.

 

Visit these ports


Juneau
Take the Mt. Roberts Tramway for a bird's-eye view of the city in which prospector Joe Juneau hit the jackpot with three gold mines on the Gastineau Channel. Be sure to save time for a thriving city of cafes, galleries and seafood restaurants. Enjoy an Alaska dinner on itineraries that feature a More Ashore Late Night call.
Icy Strait Point
Near Alaska's largest Tlingit village lies the unique port of Icy Strait Point. Opened in 2004, Icy Strait Point features a restored salmon cannery that houses a museum, where you can discover the rich Native heritage of the Huna Tlingit tribe. Grab a bite at one of the restaurants in port or pick up a Native Alaskan made souvenir from the local arts and crafts shops around town. If adventure is calling your name, look no further than the world's highest zipline with a 1,300-foot drop!
Skagway
During the Gold Rush era, Skagway - gateway to the Klondike - boasted 20,000 residents and a variety of saloons, dance halls and gambling palaces. A stroll along the town's streets will transport you back to days of the Klondike Gold Rush, as will a ride aboard the vintage White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad to the Klondike Summit and Yukon.
Ketchikan
Charming Creek Street - one of Ketchikan's main attractions - was the town's red-light district during the Gold Rush days. Equally famous are Native totems on display at the Saxman Native Village and Totem Bight State Park, and the region's fabled salmon fishing.
Victoria
In North America's most British city, you can explore sights like spectacular Butchart Gardens or find a pub for a pint of ale and fish & chips. Hop on a red double-decker bus for an authentically English vantage point of this wonderful destination.

 

Glaciers on your cruise

 

Glacier Bay National Park
Princess takes more guests to Glacier Bay than any other cruise line, and this breathtaking national park and preserve boasts some of the world's most spectacular tidewater glaciers, such as Margerie Glacier and Johns Hopkins Glacier. Not surprisingly, Glacier Bay National Park and its epic ice giants are designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site comprising Alaska's magnificent park system.
Tracy Arm Fjord
Breathtaking Tracy Arm Fjord extends over 30 miles long, with nearly a quarter of its area covered in ice. In fact, it encompasses some of Alaska's largest glaciers, including the twin Sawyer Glaciers. You'll sail past snowcapped mountains and through steep granite canyon walls.
Hubbard Glacier
The largest tidewater glacier in North America, Hubbard Glacier's immense beauty and phenomenal blue hues are enchanting, even from afar. But it's when your cruise ship draws closer that its towering surface really impresses, dwarfing even the uppermost deck on your ship.
College Fjord
Discovered in the northwest corner of Prince William Sound during the 1899 Harriman expedition, spectacular College Fjord and its glaciers were named after prestigious East Coast schools by the college professors who first laid eyes upon their majesty. Stretching for miles, these massive rivers of ice edge down from mountains and through valleys, dipping into the pristine waters of the fjord.
