Glacier Bay

7-day cruise

Princess Cruises’ Voyage of the Glaciers with Glacier Bay

Prepare yourself for the Alaska adventure of a lifetime with Princess Cruises; set sail on Island Princess, your own private retreat at sea, for a 7-day cruise from Vancouver, British Columbia, to Anchorage (Whittier), Alaska.

Onboard Island Princess, enjoy Princess’ exclusive North to Alaska program that brings local experiences to you onboard. Snuggle Skagway’s newest sled dogs with Puppies in the Piazza. Meet Libby Riddles, the first woman to win the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, and learn from Glacier Bay National Park Rangers who come onboard to share the history of this national treasure. Savor fresh Alaska seafood and local favorites onboard from Alaska’s noteworthy restaurants, such as crab cakes from Tracy’s King Crab Shack. Dining options include Crafted by Curtis Stone, Chocolate Journeys, Sabatini’s, Princess Pizzeria, The Bar & Grill and others; dining pairs with plenty of activities, such as Discovery at SEA Programs, freshwater pools and hot tubs and casino gambling. Or perhaps you prefer entertainment, including original music productions, movies and a casino, complemented by rejuvenation in the Lotus Spa or a good night of sleep in the Princess Luxury Bed. It’s also a great adventure with your family; youth and teen programs are offered.

Choose from five stateroom options at varying price points: interior, oceanview, balcony, mini-suite, Club Class and suite. All staterooms include flat-screen televisions, high-thread-count linens, a spacious closet, bathroom amenities, a refrigerator, 24-hour room service, a desk and a safe.

Each stop on the itinerary includes multiple excursion options. Begin in Vancouver, to learn more about Canada’s third-largest city, before venturing to Icy Strait Point, with one of the largest concentrations of brown bears in the world. Next up is Juneau, Alaska’s breathtaking capital, followed by Skagway’s gold rush era vibe. After scenic cruising in Glacier Bay National Park and College Fjord, disembark in Whittier, 65 miles southeast of Anchorage.
