California-based cruise ship operator Princess Cruises revealed that seven of its ships will sail Alaska’s waters on 130 cruise departures in summer 2018. 

More than 75 percent of these voyages will sail to Glacier Bay National Park, departing from Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Vancouver, and Anchorage (Whittier), according to the company.

“New for 2018, Island Princess will feature a full season of calls to Icy Strait Point, a unique and remote wilderness experience, on every seven-day northbound Voyage of the Glaciers itinerary. Also new for 2018, guests looking to cruise roundtrip from Los Angeles can choose from two 12-day cruises,” the company said.

Princess Cruises, part of Carnival Corporation, has decided to deploy its ships in Alaska when more and more cruise companies are shifting their focus to this region.

Last month, Miami-based cruise ship company Norwegian Cruise Line also said it will send its next new vessel, named Norwegian Bliss, on Alaska cruises starting from June 2018.

The company said that the Norwegian Bliss will cruise to America’s Last Frontier from Seattle and will be the first Norwegian Cruise Line’s ship to make its debut in the Emerald City.
