Cruise ship firm adds Alaskan shore trips

Article content

10 February 2010

A total of 20 new shore excursions are being added to the Princess Cruises itinerary in Alaska this year.

The cruise ship operator explained that it is expanding its current programme, which already offers 215 options for those hoping to experience the state up-close.

President of Princess Cruises, Charlie Ball, explained that holidaymakers can enjoy a more personal vacation by taking the opportunity to enjoy trips such as visits to Juneau for scientific expeditions studying climate change.

"Alaska offers so many thrilling experiences for visitors - there's beautiful scenery nearly everywhere you turn, great opportunities to encounter wildlife, an intriguing native culture and of course the towering glaciers," he said.

The programme of sailing begins in May and a chance to captain a motorised inflatable boat along the coastline of Revillagigado Island is among the choices.

Jacqi Todd of the Alaska Travel Industry Association recently noted that cruise ships represent one of the best ways to see the state.
