With the recent announcement from Canada's Federal Minister of Transport announcing the safe resumption of cruising in the country's ports, Princess Cruises finalized programs and passenger experiences for a full summer season of 2022 cruises and cruise tours to Alaska, as well as its popular summer & fall Canada and New England program.

The 2022 Princess program features 6 ships, including the newest, Discovery Princess. Offerings include 12 itineraries, totaling 140 departures and 5 glacier-viewing experiences, with calls at the Southeast Alaska towns of Ketchikan (Revillagigedo Island), Juneau, and Skagway.

Princess Cruises sails to/from Vancouver BC on its popular "Voyage of the Glaciers" 7-day cruises to/from Whittier. 20+ cruise tour options include a land tour visiting Denali National Park and Princess Wilderness Lodges and feature the "Voyage of the Glaciers." Alaska voyages from Seattle WA and San Francisco CA visit Victoria BC along with various ports in Alaska.    

The first Princess ship to visit Canada is Caribbean Princess, cruising on a 4-day Pacific Coastal trip, with a scheduled port call in Victoria BC on April 6, followed by Vancouver BC on April 7.

For the May-September 2022 season, 4 convenient west coast homeports - Seattle WA, Vancouver BC, Anchorage/Whittier, and San Francisco CA - make sailing to Alaska hassle-free.

Discovery Princess marks her inaugural season as the youngest cruise ship in Alaska departing from Seattle WA on the popular 7-day Inside Passage itinerary, alongside Crown Princess.
