Go North to Alaska with Princess Cruises

By Princess Cruises®  ·  August 2021

“North to Alaska” brings together local personalities, culture and Alaska seafood to immerse guests in the history and traditions of The Last Frontier. From savoring fresh Alaska seafood to meeting locals, the program allows guests to see, feel and taste the best of the Great.

Alaska Seafood

Guests savor a destination-themed dinner in the main dining rooms and unique Alaska seafood menus in the specialty restaurants during their cruise, including fresh salmon, King crab and halibut. Foodie favorites including seafood chowder from Bonanza Bar and Grill in Skagway and fish tacos from The Alaska Fish House in Ketchikan are offered on the top deck grill of Majestic Princess, along with crab cakes from Tracy's King Crab Shack in Juneau. Exclusive to Princess cruises sailing to the Great Land, Cook My Catch offers a true sea-to-seat experience. Guests have the chance to reel in a fish during a fishing excursion and have chefs cook it for their dinner that night.

Meet Local Alaskans

From authors and artists to dog mushers and adventurists, “North to Alaska” cruise activities introduce guests to the unique personalities who are lucky enough to call Alaska home. Throughout the season local guests will share their unique stories of their own connection to Alaska, including:

  • Life as a Musher - guests meet a local dog musher, learn about the 1,100-mile Iditarod sled dog race and interact with a real dog.
  • Nick Jans, New York Times best-selling author and renowned storyteller, comes aboard to tell his emotional story of Romeo, the wolf, and the effect he had on the people of Juneau, as told in his book, "A Wolf Called Romeo."
  • Brendan Jones, prolific writer, college professor and best-selling author of the novel "The Alaskan Laundry," shares stories about his life, education, and journey from Philadelphia to Sitka, Alaska.

Alaska Native Voices

  • National Park Rangers come aboard in Glacier Bay National Park to offer commentary and insights on this 3.3-million acre jewel.
  • Mark Kelly and Carl Johnson, award-winning photographers, have captured some of the best images the Great Land has to offer and share their Alaska photography experiences. Guests learn tips and tricks for taking their own frameable Alaska snapshots.
  • Michael Modzelewski, a naturalist onboard every sailing, uncovers the history of this breathtaking state and helps guests spot native wildlife including humpback whales, bald eagles and mountain goats along their voyage.

Unique Alaska Experiences

Thoughtfully curated onboard activities continue to bring the local Alaska culture to life with various experiences, including:

  • Small but Mighty - Some of Skagway’s newest sled dogs come aboard with Puppies in the Piazza. Snap a picture with these lovable canines and meet their dog handlers, who will be training them for a life of dog mushing.
  • Midnight Sun Experience – hosted in The Sanctuary onboard Majestic Princess, guests delight in an intimate music experience with a guitar vocalist, cuddle up with blankets on lounge chairs and enjoy warm beverages or local Alaska beers.
