Princess Cruises is debuting the Epic Adventure Cruise from Singapore to Alaska on the 2,600-guest Golden Princess, offering 29- or 36-day itinerary options.
Sailing from Singapore on April 14, 2018, Golden Princess’ 29-day Southeast Asia, Japan and North Pacific Crossing will bring guests to 11 ports in Asia – namely Ho Chi Minh City, Nha Trang, Hong Kong, Taipei, Busan (South Korea) and Japan’s Osaka, Shimizu, Yokohama, Sakaiminato, Hakodate and Muroran – before crossing the International Date Line in the Pacific Ocean on the way to Anchorage, Alaska.
Guests have the option to continue on the seven-day Alaska Grand Adventure from Anchorage visiting the Hubbard Glacier, Glacier Bay National Park, Skagway, Juneau before arriving in Vancouver.
“We have created (the cruise) from Singapore to Alaska due to popular demand from guests in this region who wish to embark the ship closer from home to sail to Alaska instead of just booking (our) seven-night Alaskan cruise,” said Farriek Tawfik, director of Southeast Asia, Princess Cruises.
On top of the chance to observe Alaskan wildlife including humpback whales, dolphins, bears and bald eagles, guests on the seven-day journey can also enjoy on-shore activities such as dog sledding and visits to the national and wildlife parks.
Princess Cruises and Discovery Communications are also teaming up to create new vacation experiences with activities featuring Discovery hit shows such as MythBusters, Deadliest Catch and Shark Week; as well as Discovery and Animal Planet shore excursions.
While on board guests will be offered a range of inclusive dining options with signature dishes designed by celebrity chef Curtis Stone featured in the main dining room. Guests can also enjoy an Alaska-themed dinner and a variety of fresh Alaska seafood options.
The 29-day itinerary is priced from S$4,520 (US$3,318.70) per pax, while the seven-day Alaska Grand Adventure would cost an additional S$1,160 per pax.
