New Alaska experiences on Princess Cruises
Fully embracing the Alaska region, its people and all it has to offer, these latest ideas are sure to attract more cruise travellers from the likes of Australia, New Zealand and the United States, when they make their debut in May 2015:
- Alaska Seafood, fresh and delicious: In partnership with the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute, enjoy a varied menu of gorgeous cuisine from specially trained Alaska seafood chefs. The restaurants onboard will even offer an Alaska-specific menu on select evenings. Delectable dishes to choose from will include King Grab, King Salmon and fresh halibut. An additional bonus is selections from the likes of Tracy's King Crab Shack in Juneau and fish tacos from Ketchikan's Alaska Fish House.
- Locals of Alaska stop by: Princess cruises fully appreciate the unique atmosphere in Alaska and are bringing in some authentic story-tellers. The Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch star, Captain David Lethin, and colleagues from Aleutian Ballad have plenty of tales to recount. Become a logger head for your Alaska cruise holiday, as a lumberjack helps you throw an axe or two! Author of A Wolf Called Romeo, Nick Jans, reveals the story behind his New York Times best-seller, while young ones can pan for gold, take part in a Junior Ranger program and other interactive treats.
- Memories of the Klondike: Klondike festival activities include sled-racing presentations, traditional dance, arts and crafts and a concluding celebration of a visible sun at night courtesy of the Midnight Sun top-deck event. It's an entertainment like no other and is guaranteed to make your Princess Alaska cruise even more memorable.
Princess' 50th birthday in full swing
