Princess intends to return to service in the US with Alaska sailings

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, is announcing its intent to return to service in the United States with a partial season of Alaska sailings from Seattle.

Princes has announced plans for a return to service in the United States. The cruise line intends to resume operations with a partial season of Alaska sailings. Sailing round-trip Seattle, seven-day cruises, Majestic Princess will depart on July 25 through September 26, 2021. 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 magnificent 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

“We have been working towards this moment to return to service for over a year and starting with our Alaska cruise vacations is incredibly gratifying.” said Jan Swartz, president of Princess Cruises.

These Princess cruises to Alaska are available for guests who have received their final dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days prior to the beginning of the cruise and have proof of vaccination. Crew vaccinations will be in accordance with CDC guidelines.

Dining, entertainment and shore excursion details are currently being finalized and will be communicated in the coming weeks on princess.com.
