I was able to find this official press release from Princess on their news website about the 2016 Alaska cruise season: Click Here To View. This press release previously announced the Princess ships that would cruise Alaska in 2016, but the bookings opened today, March 12, 2015.
And The Princess Ships Cruising Alaska In 2016 Are...
- Coral Princess
- Crown Princess
- Grand Princess
- Island Princess
- Ruby Princess
- Star Princess
- Anchorage, Alaska
- San Francisco, CA
- Seattle, WA
- Vancouver, BC
For the most part, the ships that Princess has deployed to Alaska are the same as in 2015. However, this year, the Pacific Princess and Golden Princess are not scheduled to cruise Alaska.
For those of you looking to book an Alaska cruise remember these basic tips:
- Book your cruise early because certain types of staterooms can sell out.
- Purchase travel insurance that will adequately cover you because Alaska can be an expensive vacation and if something happens you probably don't want to lose all of your vacation money.
- Always be on the lookout for price drops and try to get your cruise line to honor the lower price!
- Keep in mind Alaska can be a once in a lifetime opportunity for many and it is okay to splurge a little to make the most of this vacation. It is worth it to have a room with a view if you plan on looking outside at the scenery. If not, I would recommended just booking an interior. If you do book an interior, remember to use the outside public decks to get a look outside!
