Princess Announces 2025 Alaska Cruise and Cruisetours Season

Princess Cruises has unveiled its 2025 Alaska cruise and cruisetours season, including three roundtrip itineraries and an exclusive new National Parks Cruisetour. These offerings are now available for booking.

New for 2025 from the cruise line that brings the most guests to Alaska every year is a 22-day roundtrip voyage sailing from San Francisco on Ruby Princess that coincides with the Summer Solstice, and a 17-day roundtrip cruise from Seattle on Grand Princess with three days of scenic glacier viewing. For guests seeking to sail from Southern California, there is a new 16-day roundtrip "Inside Passage" voyage from Los Angeles on Grand Princess.

Following its debut in 2024, the National Parks Cruisetour returns in 2025 with a 15-night adventure to five of Alaska's top parks. Guests will have the opportunity to explore Glacier Bay, Denali, Wrangell-St. Elias, Kenai Fjords National Parks and Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park in Skagway. Unique to Princess, this experience combines a seven-day "Voyage of the Glaciers" cruise, scenic rail travel, and multiple days on land, including stays at four Princess-owned wilderness lodges.
