Princess announces changes to Alaska itineraries

UPDATE: The July 27 call of Royal Princess, the July 28 visit of Discovery Princess and the July 30 visit of Grand Princess will call on Sitka. 

 

SANTA CLARITA — Princess Cruises is adjusting several Alaska itineraries due to the closure of a forward berth by White Pass.

The berth at the Railroad Dock, says the company, is the primary location where its Royal Class ships dock in Skagway, Alaska.

As a result, the July 26 call of Majestic Princess will instead call on Icy Strait Point. However, Crown Princess will continue with its scheduled call in Skagway today, July 26, as it docks at a different Skagway pier.

This development will also affect the July 27 call of Royal Princess, the July 28 visit of Discovery Princess and the July 30 visit of Grand Princess, the specifics of which are still being coordinated.

Princess is working with officials from Skagway and the White Pass Rail Road to determine when scheduled calls can return.
