Princess Cruises has announced a new Epic Adventure Cruise from Singapore to Alaska on the 2,600-guest Golden Princess, catering to the Asian market with easy embarkation in Singapore and an exciting 29 to 36-day itinerary.
Sailing from Singapore on 14th April 2018, Golden Princess’ 29-day Southeast Asia, Japan and North Pacific Crossing will bring guests to 11 ports in Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh City & Nha Trang), Hong Kong, Taiwan (Taipei), South Korea (Busan), Japan (Osaka, Shimizu, Yokohama, Sakaiminato, Hakodate & Muroran), before crossing the International Date Line in the Pacific Ocean on the way to Anchorage, Alaska
“We have created this 29-day Epic Adventure Cruise from Singapore due to popular demand from guests in this region who wish to embark the ship closer from home to sail to Alaska instead of just booking the 7-night Alaskan cruise. This cruise appeals to Asians as the ship calls at many North Asian ports especially in Japan where guests will be able experience various local cultural activities and cuisine before they arrive in Alaska” said Mr. Farriek Tawfik, Director of Southeast Asia, Princess Cruises.
Guests can then continue on the 7-day Alaska Grand Adventure from Anchorage visiting the Hubbard Glacier, Glacier Bay National Park, Skagway, Juneau, while cruising through Alaska with its ever-changing scenery from picturesque shores to quaint coastal towns, before arriving in Vancouver in British Columbia. These two voyages can be combined into a 36-day sailing.
The 29-day Southeast Asia, Japan and North Pacific Crossing fares are priced from S$4,520 per person, with the 7-day Alaska Grand Adventure fares an additional S$1,160 per person. This voyage is convenient for guests from Southeast Asia who wish to embark closer to home when cruising to North Asia and Alaska.
The cruise offers guests an incredible opportunity to experience Alaska’s majestic scenery, with snowy mountains, icy glaciers and magnificent fjords. Guests will also have the opportunity to observe Alaska’s amazing diversity of wildlife including humpback whales, dolphins, bears and bald eagles. Guests can also enjoy on-shore excursion activities including dog sledding, and visits to the national and wildlife parks.
Golden Princess features over 700 balcony staterooms allowing guests to enjoy breath-taking views from their cabin balconies. The ship will also be refitted with the new Princess Luxury Beds next year in March in Singapore. The Luxury Bed is developed with board-of-medicine certified sleep expert Dr. Michael Breus to give guests a restful sleep whilst at sea.
While on board guests will be offered an extensive range of inclusive dining options with signature dishes designed by award-winning Chef Curtis Stone featured in the main dining room. Guests can also enjoy an authentic experience with an Alaska-themed dinner and a variety of fresh Alaska seafood options onboard including King Crab, King Salmon, Hump Island Oysters and Halibut.
Princess Cruises and Discovery Communications are also teaming up to create new memorable vacation experiences with activities featuring Discovery hit shows such as MythBusters, Deadliest Catch, and Shark Week; as well as Discovery and Animal Planet™ shore excursions.
