Princess Cruises will offer its signature Voyage of the Glaciers itinerary on three different ships in 2017.

In total, six different Princess ships will sail Alaskan waters in 2017. The Coral Princess, Star Princess, and Island Princess all will sail the Voyage of the Glaciers itinerary between Whittier (Anchorage) and Vancouver. The Ruby Princess and Emerald Princess will sail 10-day voyages through Alaska’s inside passage out of Seattle while the Grand Princess will sail the same itinerary out of San Francisco.

Princess is offering more than 20 land and sea vacations in all for 2017, including its most popular program, the Denali Explorer. During Alaskan sailings, guests can also catch—and eat—their dinner during port calls in Juneau and Ketchikan as part of the recently announced “Cook My Catch” shore excursion experience.

Tip of the Day

A common scam involves a call from what is apparently the hotel front desk asking for your credit card number confirmation. When the number they claim to have is confirmed wrong, they request the correct number.
