Diamond Princess Alaska Cruise Northbound

Diamond Princess Alaska Cruise Northbound

Princess' Gulf of Alaska Cruise offers an eight-day, seven-night cruise highlighting Alaska's pristine glaciers and marine wildlife. The northbound cruises travel from Vancouver, British Columbia to Whittier, Alaska. You will cruise the inside passage, view massive glaciers and visit exciting ports along the way. Princess ships may be big, but they don't feel big. That's because the extra space is used to create additional guest amenities and more small intimate places for you to enjoy. Deck plans offer a wide variety of restaurants, theaters, bars, swimming pools and more. Experience "big ship choice with a small ship feel" on a Princess ship.
