Princess Cruises Wild for Alaska Cocktails
Not only can you enjoy Alaskan seafood on your cruise, Princess Cruises has also created special Alaska drinks and cocktails to try.
The Alaska Brewing Company beers can be sampled onboard and you can even visit its Tasting Room in Juneau to try over 20 craft beers on tap.
Princess Cruises offers flights of Alaska spirits that have been sourced from local distilleries.
If you enjoy a cocktail, look out for Alaska-inspired cocktails such as Creamy Cinnamon Moonshine, and Glacial-chilled Martinis.
There are also hand-picked, premium wine pairings to go with Alaska seafood dishes on Princess ships.
Which Cruise Ships have the Wild for Alaska Seafood Programme?
Every Princess Cruises ship sailing in Alaska has the seafood programme to enjoy onboard. 2024 is a special year for Princess Cruises, as it celebrates 55 years cruising to Alaska.
Cruise ships that are offering Alaska cruises in 2024 are:
- Discovery Princess
- Majestic Princess
- Royal Princess – watch our cruise ship tour
- Crown Princess – watch our cruise ship tour
- Ruby Princess
- Sapphire Princess – watch our cruise ship tour
- Grand Princess – read about our cruise on Grand Princess
We’d recommend looking at the different itineraries on offer for each ship, to help you choose.
In our opinion, the Voyage of the Glaciers itinerary on Grand or Sapphire Princess looks the most appealing because it has two glacier viewing experiences.
