Cruise ship firm expands Alaska options

Article content

30 March 2010

People travelling to Alaska with Princess Cruises now have more opportunities to explore the state through land excursions.

The company announced nine new options for those hoping to plant their feet on terra firma during cruise ship holidays in the area.

Activities are already provided by local tour operators and include kayaking, nature hikes and cultural sightseeing around the US's largest state.

However, the new choices will enable travellers to visit Eskimo villages, learn to cook traditional cuisine, see how trappers and hunters ply their trade and enjoy cross-country quad-biking.

Charlie Ball, president of Princess Tours, said: "Just like shore excursions from our ships, these optional land excursions are selected to give … guests some uniquely Alaskan adventures and experiences."

Jacqi Todd of the Alaska Travel Industry Association recently noted that cruise liners are one of the best ways for travellers to get maximum enjoyment out of visiting the region.
