Alaska is one of the most beautiful, exciting and adventurous cruise destinations you can choose. A Princess Cruises’ Alaskan voyage makes that even better by including exclusive onboard enrichment programs that broaden your understanding of the region’s history with fun, interactive experience that the whole family will enjoy!
Puppies in the Piazza – Playing with sled dog puppies on a cruise ship is probably the last thing one would ever imagine doing! But on a Princess cruise guests can meet some of Skagway's newest sled dogs onboard in the Piazza. Feel free to take “selfies” with the pups and meet their dog handlers who will be training them for a life of dog mushing. Unfortunately, taking puppies home is prohibited!
Tales from the Deadliest Catch – My family loves this popular Discovery Channel show. If you’ve ever watched it you have to be curious about the dangerous life these men live during the crabbing season and the courage they display to be onboard their ships in such detrimental weather! In this program "Deadliest Catch" Captain David Lethin and his shipmates from The Aleutian Ballad relate their true-life adventures and experiences in the Bering Sea in pursuit of crab.
Tales from the Wild with Nick Jans- New York Times best-selling author, and renowned storyteller Nick Jans comes aboard to tell his compelling, emotional story of Romeo. His book, "A Wolf Called Romeo" tells the remarkable story of this wolf that returned again and again to interact with the people and dogs of Juneau, living on the edges of their community.
Meet the Mountain Climber- (This program is for guests traveling on a Princess Land & Sea Vacation). Denali offers one of the world's greatest mountaineering challenges. Its arctic environment with extreme temperatures and harsh storms, and its great height make it a severe test of personal strength, teamwork, and logistics. This program lets guests enjoy an interactive presentation by real mountain climbers who have conquered Denali. Hear their tales of survival on the mountain, view photos and even try authentic climber equipment.
These are just a few of the enrichment programs offered on a Princess Alaska cruise. Not every program is offered on every itinerary.
