Local Culture on the Horizon

Princess Cruises® brings you unforgettable moments in Europe and Alaska

A World of Opportunity

Imagine meeting a world-renowned musher aboard your cruise and then zipping through the Alaskan wilderness on your own thrilling dog-sled adventure. Or picture yourself raising a toast of ruby-red Chianti with newfound friends, reliving memories of your day in the Tuscan vineyards. On Princess Cruises®, not only will you sail into the world’s most revered ports of call, but you’ll create unforgettable connections with the local cultures you visit. Specializing in sailings to Alaska and Europe, Princess Cruises® creates authentic experiences throughout your journey, and we’ll enhance each voyage with our exclusive onboard amenities and expert global connections from ship to shore.

Enriching Connections

Intriguing programs inspired by DiscoveryTM, Animal PlanetTM and others offer unique perspectives as you sail toward new horizons.

Dine Like a Local

Succulent king crab legs and spicy crab cakes from Juneau’s famed Tracy’s King Crab Shack can be delivered straight to your stateroom. Dine with your shipmates over fresh fish tacos sourced from The Alaska Fish House in Ketchikan. As you arrive in Ketchikan, you can embark on a personal tour of a remote crab estuary, even lending a hand if you desire, followed by a crab feast in a wilderness lodge.

The flavors of the Mediterranean shine on board at Sabatini’s, where you’ll feel as if each meal has been home-cooked in a Tuscan villa, paired with flowing Italian wines. On land, let us arrange an extraordinary day of wine tasting in Chianti with a private lunch on the sprawling grounds of a castle wine estate.

Chefs Table Dining

Celebrate with your loved ones at Princess Cruises®’ newest restaurant, coming to select ships. At SHARE, developed by celebrity chef, Curtis Stone, every meal is designed to be shared among family and friends. More gourmet offerings are on display at the exclusive Chef’s Table also developed with Chef Stone.
