Scrapping Test Requirement Ease Cruising on Alaskan Cruises

Cruising on Alaskan Cruises

Princess Cruises applauds the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) decision to lift the COVID-19 testing requirement for entering the U.S. beginning June 12.

“This is a tremendous development that allows our guests to travel more easily and without stress throughout Europe as well as experience our Alaskan cruises that conclude in a Canadian port,” said John Padgett, president of Princess Cruises. 

Princess is in the process of notifying guests of this new development and updating communications. 



Six Princess ships will sail in Alaska in 2022, including the line’s newest ship, the Discovery Princess. Together, the vessels will offer 12 unique itineraries, totaling 140 departures and five glacier-viewing experiences, with visits to the Southeast Alaska towns of Juneau, Skagway, and Ketchikan.

One of the Princess homeports in the region is Vancouver, who serves as a starting or ending point for the seven-night “Voyage of the Glaciers” open-jaw itinerary. Alaska cruises sailing from Seattle and San Francisco visit Victoria, Canada, along with various ports in Alaska towns dependent upon itinerary. 



In addition to the Discovery Princess, other Princess ships sailing to Alaska and Canada include Royal Princess, Majestic Princess, Crown Princess, Ruby Princess and Grand Princess. 

Princess Cruises has great options currently available for vacations in Europe, Alaska, the Caribbean, Canada and Australia at incredible values.
