Princess Cruises has announced the launch of a new voyage taking passengers to see the wonders of Alaska.
The company's Alaska Cruisetour gives passengers the opportunity to enjoy a seven-night trip from Vancouver to the town of Whittier in the 49th state of the USA.
From here, Princess customers will then be able to take a train inland to the base of Mount McKinley in the company of local park rangers who will bring them up-to-speed on Alaska's history and nature.
Announcing the launch of the new package, Pieter van der Schee, head of brand marketing at Princess cruises
, told Travel Weekly: "Princess' expertise in cruise holidays and land tours in the region has enabled us to put together a fascinating itinerary that will appeal to families of all ages at better value than ever before."
Princess Cruises was established back in the 1960s when the company's founder Stanley McDonald reached a deal to use Alaskan cruise
liners for summer tours of Mexico during months when they would normally have lain dormant.
