Additional Information

What You May Experience:

Visit pristine Glacier Bay National Park and picturesque Denali National Park, home to North America’s tallest peak. Experience stunning views, explore beautiful port cities, and trek through Alaska's untamed beauty. Come find yourself in the heart of the wilderness and discover the very best Alaska.

Enjoy a top-rated 10-day Voyage of the Glaciers Alaska cruise vacation with two glacier-viewing experiences during your time on board. Enjoy scenic rail travel from the ship to the lodge via Princess's Direct-to-the-Wilderness® rail service for an all-encompassing Alaska cruise tour. As a part of your Alaska cruise tour, spend three nights on land at Princess Wilderness Lodges located riverside near legendary national parks.

Part of the allure of Denali National Park is that you never know what you might see. Princess professionals at the Tour Desk are available to arrange a tour into the Park for a glimpse of its impressive ecosystem -- ask for the Tundra Wilderness Tour or Natural History Tour. Perhaps you'd like to go river rafting or learn about the sport of sled dog racing from Iditarod musher Jeff King. See Denali from the air with a helicopter or airplane tour of this immense wilderness preserve.

Where You Will Stay:

  • Sapphire Princess - As you set your sights on the wonders of the world, let Sapphire Princess indulge your every whim. Over 700 balconies, world-class gourmet dining and dazzling entertainment options are just the beginning of your sea-going adventure. Dance the night away, enjoy casino gaming or relax and rejuvenate body and mind at the Lotus Spa.

But! This is a land and sea Cruisetour! So there is more!

Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge is the perfect base camp for exploring Denali National Park. The entrance to Denali National Park is located only a mile from our front door. With an expansive deck overlooking the Nenana River with views into the park, Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge is the ideal spot to relax, visit with friends, and savor the exquisite landscape. This comfortable wilderness lodge features restaurants and lounges, a cafe, tour desk, meeting rooms, and shuttle service to the Denali National Park Visitors Center.

Where You May Eat:

While at sea, indulge your appetite whenever you wish. Every hour, Princess' chefs are busy baking, grilling and sautéing great-tasting fare from scratch. Princess offers unparalleled inclusive dining options throughout the ship with a wide range of culinary delights to suit any palate, from endless buffet choice to gourmet pizza, frosty treats, decadent desserts and much more. Dining onboard a Princess cruise ship is a joyful celebration and the specialty restaurants always deliver an extraordinary experience. They are among the best at sea – or anywhere.

The on-land experience is just as promising! Enjoy dinner on the river view deck of the Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge or inside at their Grizzly Burger pub. Try King Salmon Restaurant for delicious, Alaskan cuisine and panoramic views.

Alaska Excursions:

  • Discovery & Animal Planet Excursions - Unlock a world of adventure with Discovery at SEA™, our exclusive partnership with Discovery™ and Animal Planet™.
  • Wildlife - Alaska is teeming with wildlife. See the Great Land’s most famous animals — like humpback whales — on our Alaska shore excursions. Marvel at bald eagles in their natural habitats while in Ketchikan.
  • Culture - The Great Land was built on a strong culture. On our Alaska shore excursions, step back in time to learn how these traditions came to fruition and how they're practiced today. Attend a lumberjack axe-throwing competition, watch a Native dance performance and excite your taste buds at a salmon bake with locals.
  • Gold Rush History - Strike it rich on any of our cruise excursions in Alaska where you can pan for gold like the many treasure hunters before you. Tour mining camps and meet experienced miners who hold secrets of The Last Frontier.

Here is a look at the details of this trip:

10-Day Voyage of the Glaciers cruise: 

This top-rated Alaska cruise takes you further north than most itineraries and includes the cultural and scenic attractions of the Alaska and British Columbia Inside Passage as well as the Gulf of Alaska, so you can see and experience more.

A magnificent 10-day Voyage of the Glaciers cruise vacation also treats you to two incredible days of scenic glacier viewing, including Glacier Bay National Park. Sailing through serene waters filled with icebergs, you'll get an up-close look at towering Margerie Glacier and perhaps be treated to the spectacle of seeing it calve massive chunks of ice into the tidewater to the roar of "white thunder". If that weren't enough, there's equally impressive Hubbard Glacier or College Fjord also on the itinerary.

But no trip to Alaska is complete without the chance to relieve its storied Gold Rush past and experience its Native culture, and you'll be able to do that and more when your ship calls at the charming ports of Juneau, Ketchikan and Skagway.

Land - Direct-to-the-Wilderness Alaska Rail Service: 

With an exclusive Direct-to-the-Wilderness® rail service, you’ll enjoy a spectacular 500-mile journey through the heart of Alaska that you might otherwise miss on other land vacations.

Only Princess luxury rail service can take you between your ship and our Denali-area lodges all in the same day, for more time in the unspoiled Alaska wilderness – without the need for an overnight hotel stay en route.

Along the way, you’ll take in breathtaking sights from glass-domed rail cars and our outdoor viewing platforms. In addition to the wildlife you’re bound to see, you won’t want to miss views of Denali, Hurricane Gulch, Turnagain Arm and dozens of picturesque rivers and meadows. You’ll enjoy fascinating commentary from our onboard rail guides, and perhaps you’ll visit the dining car for our signature Alaska Cuisine. Of course, trademark Princess service will be on hand every step of the way to ensure your journey is truly unforgettable.

Land - Denali Princess Wilderness Lodge: 

Each hotel guest room is comfortably appointed with two double beds, two queen beds, or one king bed, television, and complimentary wifi -- just in case you want to catch up with the outside world. Princess' premier accommodations far outshine average Alaska hotels! You haven’t fully experienced Alaska unless you’ve been to Denali National Park. Its boundaries encompass an impressive six million acres — the size of the state of Massachusetts. Home to Denali, North America’s highest peak towers an unbelievable 20,310 feet in the sky. The Park hosts an array of wildlife from moose, caribou, Dall sheep and grizzly bears to gray wolves and red foxes.
