Princess Cruises is further enhancing their North to Alaska program this year, namely with a new experience called Cook My Catch. The unique dining option is available of cruises during ports of call in Juneau and Ketchikan, as well as Princess Land & Sea Vacations with stays at Kenai Princess Wilderness Lodge and Copper River Princess Wilderness Lodge. It will be available on select shore excursions in those places, where guests can pick their preferred preparation and sides to be created by the culinary team. It’s a unique way for passengers to enjoy their own Alaska seafood.
Cook My Catch is just one of several new enhancements coming to the North to Alaska program in 2016. The program partners with local experts to provide one-of-a-kind authentic educational, entertainment, and culinary experiences in Alaska. It provides guests a unique look at the last frontier, and allows them to dive deeper into the exploration of it.
Other North to Alaska highlights include:
Puppies in the Piazza
Skagway’s newest sled dogs greet passengers on Alaska cruises this year. Guests will be able to interact with the dogs, take pictures, and meet the dog handlers that train them for the Iditarod.
Meet the Mountain Climber
Guests that are also participating in the land portion of select cruises will be able to enjoy an interactive presentation in the new theater at Mt. McKinley Princess Wilderness Lodge. In the presentation, mountain climbers who have conquered Denali share their experiences and stories. Participants will also be able to look at photos and try real climber equipment. Afterwards, they’ll head outside to see a retired airplane like the ones used to take climbers to and from base camp.
