Princess Cruises has announced its Alaska 2024 season celebrating its 55th anniversary of sailing in Alaska this year, according to a press release.

A total of seven ships will sail to Alaska during the 2024 season, departing from four homeports including San Francisco, Seattle, Vancouver, B.C., and Anchorage (Whittier).

“As the leading cruise line in Alaska, we deliver unforgettable vacations and we’re also the most recommended line by travel advisors to their trusted clients,” said John Padgett, president of Princess Cruises.

“We’re celebrating our 55th anniversary in 2024 cruising to this must-see destination, so whether it’s your first or fifth time visiting Alaska, we are ready to help guests make inspiring memories to last a lifetime.”

The 2024 season includes 158 departures, 14 unique itineraries with 17 destinations, as well as five glacier viewing experiences and 86 visits to Glacier Bay National Park. Two of the cruise line’s ships, the Discovery Princess and Majestic Princess will be departing from Seattle on Saturdays and Sundays for seven-day cruises.

The Ruby Princess will sail from Vancouver on seven-day “Inside Passage” cruises while the Crown Princess will depart from San Francisco on the same itinerary but for 11 days.

Additionally, due to high demand, Princess Cruises is returning the 17-night Ultimate Princess Connoisseur cruise tour with two nights at each one of the five Princess Wilderness Lodges, located near national parks including Kenai Fjords and Wrangell St. Elias and Denali National Park.

This season, travelers looking to experience more of Alaska can combine Princess Cruises’ signature seven-day Voyage of the Glaciers cruise with other three to ten-night land tour options while staying at Princess Wilderness Lodges.
