Princess Launches Alaska Wilderness Sale on Convenient Cruisetours from Seattle


Special Pricing Includes Travel Between Seattle and Alaska Plus Stateroom Upgrade

SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (October 15, 2009) - Princess Cruises is again offering its popular Alaska Wilderness Sale promotion, featuring a special lineup of cruisetours that offer passengers the extra convenience of roundtrip travel from Seattle. These unique packages make planning an Alaska land/sea vacation easier than ever by including all travel once the passenger gets to Seattle, including airfare between Seattle and Alaska.

The Alaska Wilderness Sale runs through December 31, 2009, and features 10 Seattle-based cruisetour options. Air travel between Seattle and Alaska, motorcoach transfers between Seattle and Vancouver, and an overnight stay in Seattle are all included in the package. Fares start at $1,899 US for an interior stateroom and $2,299 US for a balcony stateroom for an 11-night land/sea vacation, which includes a free stateroom category upgrade.


Cruisetour options include both northbound and southbound routes, with 11- to 15-night itineraries. All passengers will experience Princess' signature seven-night Voyage of the Glaciers cruise, combined with a variety of Direct to the Wilderness tours, or Explorer tours to the Copper River or Kenai areas. All tours feature Princess' own riverside wilderness lodges, with at least two nights in the Denali National Park area and luxury train travel on ultra-domed railcars.

"When we introduced these Seattle-based tour options last season, they really increased sales for many agents," said Charlie Ball, president of Princess Tours. "These packages make a visit to the heart of Alaska more convenient than ever, so the only other planning needed is travel to and from Seattle. We handle all other arrangements, so visitors can simply enjoy this incredible opportunity to experience Alaska's top attractions, including Glacier Bay and Denali National Park."


The Alaska Wilderness Sale cruisetours include the line's famed Voyage of the Glaciers sailings between Vancouver and Whittier - featuring calls at Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway with daylight cruising of Glacier Bay National Park plus either College Fjord or Hubbard Glacier. Passengers can choose departures on Diamond Princess, Coral Princess or Island Princess.

Passengers can choose from 10 different cruisetour itineraries. Some feature the line's famed Direct-to-the-Wilderness rail service which transports guests right from their ship to the Denali area, giving them extra time in the heart of Alaska's wilderness. Explorer itineraries include nights at off-the-beaten-path lodges, Copper River Princess Wilderness Lodge or Kenai Princess Wilderness Lodge. On all itineraries, passengers will enjoy lodging at Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge and/or Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge.

Princess offers a variety of land/sea Alaska experiences showcasing the best of Alaska. All cruisetour options feature the state's most sought-after attractions, with at least two nights in the Denali National Park area, plus cruising through the dramatic Glacier Bay National Park. Cruisetour travelers can also see North America's tallest peak, Mt. McKinley, plus immerse themselves in a variety of Alaskan activities, from dog sledding to heli-hiking.
