Cruise Control: 3 things we love about Princess Cruises
1. Top Alaska Line
When most folks think of a cruise, the warm-weather, crystal-clear blue water, and sandy beaches, are usually top of mind. But Princess Cruises knocks the Pacific Northwest out of the park with their unbeatable product in Alaska. For the adventurous family or couple, look no further than the wilderness of America's largest state. In Alaska, Princess takes its passengers to the face of Glacier Bay National Park & Preserve. Hear the incredible sound of the ice crashing into the ocean as it has for thousands of years. It's certainly a reason why Princess earned "Best Cruise Line in Alaska" for 10 straight years by Travel Weekly.
Along with Glacier Bay, a trip on a Princess Cruise means a tour of the coastal ports of Alaska, including Juneau, Skagway, and Ketchikan to name a few. Plus, sailing out of Vancouver, Seattle, San Francisco, or Los Angeles provides avenues of extending your trip in some wonderful west coast cities.
2. Best excursions
Sailing in the Pacific is one thing, but stepping foot on land means your trip has just gotten started. Named "Best Alaska Cruises" for in-depth exploration by USA Today, Princess takes its passengers to places like Denali National Park via railroad. The luxurious rail travel, accompanied by excellent tour guides and once-in-a-lifetime views of nature, make Princess a must-use cruise for excursions.
View Mt. Denali, the highest mountain peak in the United States on your way to the several wilderness lodges owned by Princess. When we say they offer the complete packages, we mean it.
3. "Cook My Catch"
What better way to enjoy the fruits of your fishing labor than by actually indulging on your catch of the day? In 2016, Princess introduced "Cook My Catch," allowing those who go salmon or halibut fishing to eat their reward! Just select your preparation and the culinary team at Princess cooks your seafood. You won't believe how fresh it'll taste. And, unlike this bear, you can actually use a fishing pole.
