Following passage of the Alaska Tourism Restoration Act, work with Alaska government officials and recent guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Princess Cruises intends to return to service in the United States with a partial season of Alaska sailings from Seattle, the company announced this week.
Departing July 25 through Sept. 26, round-trip Seattle, seven-day cruises, onboard Majestic Princess, a Medallion Class ship, opened for sale on Friday. These cruises will visit signature ports, glaciers and attractions in Alaska including:
- Glacier Bay National Park — this 3.3-million-acre world-renowned landmark, a UNESCO World Heritage site, features the Margerie Glacier.
- Juneau — the 49th state’s capital city, with the chance to see humpback whales and Mendenhall Glacier.
- Skagway — this Gold Rush-era town is home of the White Pass Scenic Railway.
- Ketchikan — this quaint seaside port is known for its infamous Creek Street and as the salmon capital of the world.
Princess Cruises is headquartered in Valencia.
