On board an Alaska Cruise Ship
The difference between seeing Alaska and understanding Alaska is what Princess Cruises brings to life on your Alaska cruise vacation. Our on board enrichment programs introduce the real Alaska for a personalized perspective of America's last frontier.
Insider's View of Alaska
Libby Riddles comes aboard in Juneau to share her adventures as the first woman to win the grueling 1,100-mile Iditarod sled dog race. In Skagway, you'll enjoy the entertainment of an Alaskan storyteller. And in Ketchikan, a U.S. Forest Service naturalist will present a program about the largest forest in the country, Tongass National Forest.
Rangers and Naturalists
Alaska's intriguing flora, fauna and geology come to life by the full-time on board naturalists who sails with you the entire length of the cruise. While in Glacier Bay National Park, rangers from the National Park Service will board the cruise ship to serve as tour guides and answer questions about this national treasure. Rangers also lead our Junior Ranger and Teen Explorer programs in Glacier Bay, which teach kids about the wildlife and scenery in a fun and entertaining way.
Alaska Signature Specialties
Our Signature Alaskan Cuisine showcases local specialties including fresh Alaskan seafood. We also treat you to a Taste of Alaska Buffet, a festive on-deck Fish Barbecue and a Reindeer Chili and Rockfish Chowder Cook-Off. The Chef's Alaskan Dinner and Glacier Bay Gala Buffet are highlights not to be missed. Or indulge in our Glacier Bay Champagne Breakfast served on your own balcony on board Princess Cruises.
