Princess Cruises announced a 29-36 day cruise from Singapore to Alaska on the 2,600-guest Golden Princess, catering to the Asian market with embarkation in Singapore.
Sailing from Singapore on April 14, 2018, Golden Princess’ 29-day Southeast Asia, Japan and North Pacific crossing will visit 11 ports in Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh City & Nha Trang), Hong Kong, Taiwan (Taipei), South Korea (Busan), Japan (Osaka, Shimizu, Yokohama, Sakaiminato, Hakodate and Muroran), before crossing the International Date Line in the Pacific Ocean on the way to Anchorage, Alaska.
‘We have created this 29-day voyage 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 seven night Alaskan cruise,’ said Farriek Tawfik, director of Southeast Asia, Princess Cruises.
‘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,’ he added.
‘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 before arriving in Vancouver in British Columbia. These two voyages can be combined into a 36-day sailing,’ Tawfik said.
