SINGAPORE 5 August 2021: Majestic Princess returned to Seattle on 1
August, concluding its sailing to Alaska and marking the first successful
United States voyage for Princess
Cruises following the
extended pause in operations.
The ship became the line’s first
ship to return to service, kicking off the partial season of Alaska sailings
departing through 26 September 2021. The round-trip, seven-day cruise visited Glacier Bay National Park,
Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan.
In addition to visiting signature ports, glaciers and attractions, guests onboard Majestic Princess this summer will enjoy authentic Alaska-themed activities offered throughout the award-winning “North to Alaska” programme that brings together local personalities, culture and Alaska seafood to immerse guests in the history and traditions of The Last Frontier. Signature speciality dining, Movies Under the Stars, production shows and [email protected] programmes are also available – from original musicals, magic shows, feature films, top comedians and original game shows, guests will be entertained while onboard Majestic Princess.
“Welcome back to Princess,
is what I said to our guests while I was cruising with them onboard Majestic
Princess for our first Return to Alaska cruise,” said Jan Swartz, Princess
Cruises president. “From the very beginning, Alaska has been at the core of
Princess Cruises and has really helped shape the very essence of who we are
today. While visiting ports of call, I personally expressed my gratitude to our
port partners and elected officials who were instrumental in our return and
joined me in warmly welcoming guests to their picturesque communities.”
This fall, Princess Cruises
will begin sailing from Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Ft. Lauderdale.
Starting between 25 September and 28 November 2021, cruises onboard eight
Princess MedallionClass™ ships will once again take guests to the Caribbean,
Panama Canal, Mexico, Hawaii, and the California Coast.
Princess cruises sailings through 2021 are
available for guests who have received their final dose of an approved COVID-19
vaccine at least 14 days prior to the beginning of the cruise and have proof of
