Princess Cruises announced its 2022 Alaska cruise season, which will go on sale beginning on December 16, 2020.
In 2022, Princess will offer cruises on six ships, including the newest ship Discovery Princess.
A total of 12 cruise itineraries are available, along with 25 seamless cruisetour options.
The 143,700-ton, 3,660-passenger Discovery Princess, marks her inaugural season departing from Seattle on the popular seven-day Inside Passage itinerary, alongside Emerald Princess.
Majestic Princess debuts along with Sapphire Princess and Grand Princess sailing the top-rated seven-day Voyage of the Glaciers itinerary, which features two glacier viewing experiences on every cruise including Glacier Bay National Park (Vancouver, B.C. to Anchorage [Whittier] or vice versa).
Ruby Princess offers 10-day Inside Passage cruises out of San Francisco, featuring the added bonus of the awe-inspiring sailaway under the iconic Golden Gate Bridge.
All six ships sailing to Alaska in 2022 are MedallionClass-enabled and sail from May through September 2022.
Additional 2022 Alaska program highlights include:
- 17 destinations – including five glacier-viewing experiences – on 12 unique itineraries and 140 departures. Most cruise itineraries include visits to the quaint Southeast Alaska towns of Juneau, Ketchikan and Skagway.
- 82 calls to Glacier Bay National Park on seven unique itineraries. That means, 74 percent of Princess Alaska cruises include calls to magnificent Glacier Bay National Park.
