Royal Caribbean plans to sail four ships in Alaska for the 2023 season! Now available to book, the weeklong cruises will sail from Seattle, Seward and Vancouver, BC, between May and September. The ships will offer a range of amazing itineraries to see all Alaska has to offer.

Sailings in Hawaii trips bookend the Alaska season.

Discover a wilder way to wander in summer 2023 on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. From rugged mountain ranges to the unspoiled wilderness to misty fjords, there are so many reasons to visit Alaska. And the best way to see more of the Last Frontier is with Royal Caribbean. With four incredible ships to choose from, including the two biggest and boldest in the region — Ovation of the Seas and Quantum of the Seas — this is sure to be your coolest getaway yet. 

You can also take full advantage of the beauty and wander off the beaten path on one of Royal Caribbean’s signature Alaskan Cruisetours. There’s no better way to complete an Alaskan adventure, and there are Cruisetours that cater to those who prefer the wild side and the mild side.

Quantum of the Seas returns to Alaska with seven-night sailings from Seattle full of memory-maxing experiences — from unbelievable snorkeling in Ketchikan to taking peak-seeking to new heights in the North Star observation capsule — the highest vantage point of any cruise ship.

Back by popular demand, Ovation of the Seas returns to Alaska for summer 2023. Departing every Friday from Seattle, you can take their pick of alpine adventures ashore, scope out majestic views from the panoramic Two70 theater onboard and so much more.

Enchantment of the Seas is gearing up for an adventure of glacial proportions with roundtrip sailings from Vancouver to The Last Frontier. In summer 2023, your can listen for the sound of “white thunder” as icebergs break off towering walls of ice on a weeklong multi-glacier sailing. And that’s just the beginning. You are in for a special Alaska adventure onboard Radiance of the Seas. You’ll be able to glacier-gaze and whale-watch from almost anywhere onboard from more floor-to-ceiling windows than any other Royal Caribbean ship. Plus, add a multi-day land tour to go deeper into the wild.

Get ready for a bigger, bolder Polynesian adventure filled with sunset surfing and evening luaus in the Aloha State. Royal Caribbean returns to Hawaii with limited sailings in summer 2023.

You can savor a fresh roast of coffee grown in the ancient lava fields of Kalua Kona. Grab a board and hang ten as the sun sets over Waikiki Beach on a Radiance of the Seas overnight in Oahu. Or linger longer at a luau in Maui with an overnight stay on Ovation of the Seas.

It has been a long wait but the cruise ships are back and sailing to Alaska. The Alaska season was canceled in 2020 and shortened in 2021. With such high demand for Alaska, 2022 cruises are selling out, which is why I’m excited that Princess has released their Alaska cruises for 2023. They went on sale August 18 and the demand is off the charts!

Princess has been named the “Best Cruise Line in Alaska” 14 straight years by Travel Weekly, one of the most influential news resources for the travel industry. Every year, more guests choose Princess in Alaska than any other cruise line. Why Princess?

Four departure ports. You can sail out of Anchorage (Whittier), Seattle, San Francisco or Vancouver, British Columbia.

More time ashore. Princess stays in some of the ports until 9pm or later. When you’re sailing in the Land of the Midnight Sun, this means you have more time for sightseeing.

5 glaciers. Choosing the right itinerary for Alaska is important for maximizing your glacier experience. Princess cruise itineraries include 85 sailings to Glacier Bay National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Itineraries also include Hubbard Glacier, College Fjord, Tracy Arm Fjord, Endicott Arm or Dawes Glacier.

Enrichment program. The North to Alaska program immerses you onboard and ashore in all things Alaska. You’ll meet local Alaskans, feast on fresh Alaska seafood and even meet sled dog puppies in the ship’s Piazza.

MedallionClass Experience. You will fall in love with this technology, exclusive to Princess, that enables everything from touch-free boarding to locating your loved ones anywhere on the ship, as well as enhanced service like having whatever you need, delivered.

If you really want to create the ultimate Alaska experience, Princess offers amazing Cruisetours, where you’ll spend three or more nights in the Alaska wilderness, either before or after your 7-day Voyage of the Glaciers cruise. These trips include scenic rail travel, stays at Princess-owned wilderness lodges, and visits to Glacier Bay National Park and Denali National Park. People visit Alaska to see glaciers, mountains and wildlife, and you can see it all on a Princess Cruisetour!

These cruises and Cruisetours will sell out. Let’s connect to find the perfect itinerary and ship for you.
