Each Cruise tour includes an unforgettable 7 day Voyage of the Glaciers cruise (north or south bound) and from three to eight nights exploring Alaska by land. While on land you’ll stay at exclusive Princess Wilderness lodges near legendary national parks and most Cruise tours include Princess' exclusive rail service. 

There are a few different styles of tour you can take.  On a Connoisseur tour you will be escorted by a tour director, and will include most meals on land as well as select sightseeing excursions and Princess' Alaska rail service.  A true immersive Alaskan experience. Off the Beaten Path tours, take you deeper into Alaska with options to explorer either Kenai or Wrangell-St.Elias National Park, Princess Alaska rail service as well as select sightseeing excursions. Denali Explorer is the most popular option, especially for first timers to Alaska, it includes the direct to the wilderness Alaska Rail service which take you straight from Denali National Park to your ship or vice versa.

On any of these journeys you will have the fabulous Princess land crew there to assist and land excursions that will blow your mind as much as your favourite cruise shore excursion - from the husky homestead tour where you will enjoy a cuddle with a husky puppy and hear all about what it’s like to compete in the iconic Iditarod, to the opportunity to soar over the glaciers on a flightseeing journey.     Did we mention the food? From casual snacks to pub food to 3 course gourmet meals the choices abound and the seafood is second to none.
