Anchorage Alaska residents welcomed the first cruise ship that docked at the Alaskan port for the first time in 2 years.
This was the first (and only) cruise vessel to stop in Anchorage after the COVID crisis, according to Jack Bonney (Visit Anchorage's Engagement Director).
Bonney said the sight of the cruise ship was "a little bit unusual compared to the rest of the summer season."

Following a 2-year dry spell caused by the COVID crisis, the ship’s call in Anchorage provided the port city with a last-minute economic tourism boost at the end of the typical tourist season.
