Your options begin with choosing from a 5, 7, 10, or 14 day Princess Cruise to Alaska departing from either Seattle,
WA, Anchorage, AK (for Whittier), San Francisco, CA, or Vancouver, BC, Canada.
Cruises going to Glacier Bay National Park
7 Day "Voyage of the Glaciers" Northbound. Travel on the Coral Princess, Diamond Princess, Island Princess, or Sapphire Princess. View Glacier Bay National
Park and College Fjord and make ports of call at Skagway, Juneau & Ketchikan, beginning in Vancouver, BC and ending in Anchorage.
7 Day "Voyage of the Glaciers" Southbound. Travel on the Coral Princess, Diamond Princess, Island Princess, or Sapphire Princess. View Glacier Bay National Park and
Hubbard Glacier, and make ports of call at Skagway, Juneau & Ketchikan, beginning in Anchorage and ending in Vancouver, BC.
Just one of the many Alaska Princess Cruise options
However, there are two additional
10 Day "Inside Passage" with Tracy Arm Roundtrip from San Francisco itineraries. In Late June the itinerary visits Icy Strait Point instead of Skagway. Another
offering is in Late May and late August which changes again to visit Glacier Bay and Haines instead of Skagway and Tracy Arm. As I mentioned these are only available once or twice
during the season.

Five day 'Alaskan Getaway' Cruises
Don't have much time? How about a
5 Day "Alaskan Getaway" on the Coral Princess available in early May only. You'll begin in Vancouver, visit Juneau, Ketchikan, and return to Vancouver!
***Pay attention to the times in port, especially in Ketchikan!***
Many of the Princess ships arrive in Ketchikan around 6:00am and leave by 12:30. AND...that does
not mean midnight! That means you only have six and a half hours in town.
And while that doesn't sound half bad, many tours do not begin before 7:30 and many attractions and businesses
do not openuntil 8:00, some even later than that! If you want to both take a tour and do some shopping,
you will have to plan your time carefully.
I can't tell you how many times I'm told by visitors that they are so bummed they weren't able to spend more
time in our amazing city because the ship leaves so quickly.
The Seven Princess Cruise Ships that visit Alaska are:
Grand Princess (as of 2013)
Star Princess (as of 2013!)
