Land, sea and air — be surrounded by Alaska's wildlife

Alaska wildlife includes some of the most amazing animals on the planet, making it a dream destination for anyone who appreciates nature. See otters floating through the water or orca whales surfacing from the sea. In Denali National Park, look for the Big Five — grizzly bears, wolves, moose, caribou and Dall sheep. Head into the depths of the Inside Passage for the chance to see hundreds of animals on an Alaska cruise.

Contribution to Wildlife Fund

In 2017, Princess® contributed $25,000 to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center from the Princess Animal Welfare Sponsor, a fund within the Princess Cruises Community Foundation. The sales of Stanley the Bear, named after Princess founder Stanley B. McDonald, helped to finance the expansion of AWCC facilities. The donation is also being used to build a bear-viewing area and interactive space to enrich visitor experiences.
