Why is this a GREAT Vacation?

The Land Tour through Fairbanks, El Dorado, the river cruises, the Denali
National Park, to include the three marvelous Princess Lodges, views of
Mount McKinley, and two beautifully scenic railroad trips, is simply the traveler's
and camera-buff's ultimate dream.  Plus, the incredible cruise shows you
more of Alaska’s famed coastline - its spectacular glaciers, historic ports
and unique wildlife.  You’ll see the top-ten cruise attractions, from Glacier
Bay to the fabled Inside Passage, to College Fjord and the Kenai Peninsula. 
Princess offers the newest ships in this market featuring the Sun Princess,
Coral Princess, Dawn Princess and our Island Princess.  These fabulous
ships are often called “floating cities”, with features like numerous restaurants,
lounges, Broadway style entertainment, casinos, health clubs, movie theaters,
libraries and more.  Highlights include Glacier Bay National Park, College
Fjords in Prince William Sound and interesting port towns like Skagway,
Juneau and Ketchikan.  Shore excursions are available in each port,
from historic railroad trips to landing on a glacier by helicopter.

GRATUITIES:

During your cruise, you will meet many members of the staff in a variety of locations as they provide
 you with excellent service.  Additionally, many more crew behind the scenes support those who serve you
directly.  For your convenience a Hotel and Dining charge of $10 per passenger per day (including children)
will be automatically added to your shipboard account on a daily basis.  The Hotel and Dining charge
will be shared amongst those staff who help provide and support your cruise experience, including the
wait staff, stateroom stewards and accommodations staff, buffet stewards, galley staff, laundry staff
and others.  Please note this is a discretionary charge and should you wish to remove or make any
adjustments, you may do so by contacting the Purser's Reception desk onboard.

Casino dealers and Lotus Spa personnel do not share in the Hotel and Dining charge as not all
passengers utilize these services.

A 15% charge is automatically added to your bar charges and dining room wine account. This is shared
amongst the beverage staff and their support staff, including cleaners and utility staff.
