7 Night Princess Cruise on the Star Princess Northbound Voyage of the Glaciers with a 3 night Denali Land Tour extension. This cruise leaves from Vancouver Sept 9, 2017 and returns Sept 19, 2017.

You select which type of cabin you prefer. If anyone is interested in sharing a room with either a third or fourth person; the pricing will be less than what I have listed. Let me know and I can find out the cost difference. The prices above are for the cruise only. Because we are unable to book the air this far in advance I can only tell you that we anticipate the cost to be approximately $500.00 roundtrip. That will be flying from Chicago to Vancouver and then flying from Anchorage to Chicago. Plus the transfers from the airport to the ship will be a small additional fee. I will have more information on this at Ski A Rama.

 

See Alaska on Princess Cruise line

Alaska is the largest state (in area) of the United States. This land was acquired by the US in 1867 and was admitted to the union as the 49th state in 1959. The territory was purchased from Russia and people believed that the land had nothing to offer; but the discovery of gold in the 1890s created a stampede of prospectors and settlers. Alaska is bounded by the Beaufort Sea and the Arctic Ocean to the north; Canada’s Yukon Territory and British Columbia province to the east; the Gulf of Alaska and the Pacific Ocean to the south; the Bering Sea to the west; and the Chukchi Sea to the northwest.

There are going to be a few options for this trip. You can do either a 7-day voyage or a 7-day voyage with the 3-day land tour extension; plus there are 3 different types of lodging available. Please visit www.princess.com for more information/details about the ship and the cruise.
