Best Dishes to Try on Your Alaska Cruise

Experience the best Alaska cruise food when you sail with Princess.

When you sail with Princess®, Alaska cruise food is more than a meal — it’s a culinary experience that reawakens your taste buds and speaks to the unique flavor of the Great Land. These beautifully presented meals taste just as divine as they look. All of the food on an Alaska cruise with Princess is made from scratch. Crafted with locally-sourced ingredients, enjoy only the freshest fare on board our ships. Whether you’re in the mood for legendary Alaska seafood, pan-roasted steak or a veggie-heavy plate, there’s an option for everyone. Here are the best dishes to try on your next cruise to the Great Land.


Wake up in total relaxation with a private balcony breakfast full of flakey croissants, golden eggs and savory sausage. Start the day off on a lighter note with crisp fruits and greens. Or give yourself the sweet start you deserve with chocolate-glazed donuts and fluffy pancakes. Top off your meal with a glass of freshly-squeezed orange juice, or opt for a bubbly mimosa. With a menu as adventurous as the destinations that await you, start your day with Alaska cruise food that inspires you. 


When mid-day hunger strikes, options await. On board any of our Alaska cruises, find dishes from local eateries in the top-deck grill. Inspired by Tracy’s King Crab Shack, enjoy Juneau’s favorite crab cakes. Sample authentic Alaska seafood with fish tacos from Ketchikan’s Alaska Fish House. Or choose a heartier option with Skagway’s cherished seafood chowder from Bonanza Bar and Grill. With these specialties featured in the top-deck grill on board, you won’t have to travel far to get a taste of the Great Land.


Exclusive to our cruises sailing to the Great Land, Cook My Catch offers a true sea-to-seat experience. At select ports, reel in your fish on one of our fishing excursions and have our chefs cook it for your dinner that night. They can even prepare it to your liking, so you can truly enjoy your authentic Alaska seafood.


No matter where you choose to enjoy Alaska cruise food on board, you can also find dessert almost anywhere. Start your day with something sweet in the Horizon Court Buffet — like chocolate muffins, bretons, puff pastries and danishes. Or stop by the Vines bar later for a one-of-a-kind chocolate and wine pairing. For guests on board Royal Princess®, visit the ice cream bar for a scoop of creamy gelato and an assortment of tasty toppings.

The food on an Alaska cruise should be every bit as memorable as the excursions on shore. That’s why we’re always refreshing our menus to deliver the best sensory experience through the Great Land. Sail with Princess and experience the best Alaska cruise food from morning to night.
