The Princess Cruises will sail to Alaska from Japan in 2024 - Here's what you need to know
As part of the new vessel debut by Princess Cruises, the company plans to introduce a new voyage that will take passengers all the way from cherry blossoms to glaciers in Alaska as part of the new voyage.
During the Japanese cruise season of 2024, the new itinerary will take passengers from the northern Japanese regions of Tohoku and Hokkaido during the cherry blossom season and take them all the way to Anchorage over the course of 15 days as part of Princess Cruises' Japanese cruise season.
Further, passengers will have the option of extending their cruise so that they can spend a total of 22 days in Vancouver, making the most out of their cruise experience by making the most of everything the cruise has to offer.
It is speculated by Rich Report that a Royal-Class ship from the cruise line will be taking part in the cruise, which is expected to depart from Tokyo on April 27th, 2024. This will mark the first time a Royal-Class vessel of the cruise line has sailed in this region as a Royal-Class vessel.
“Japan has been an extremely popular homeport and destination for Princess guests for a number of years, and we are delighted to be offering such a culturally rich season of cruises through this region in 2024,” said John Padgett, Princess Cruises’ president, in a statement.
During the period March through August 2024, the cruise line will also be sailing its Diamond Princess ship, which will be based in the Japan area, which will be based during that time period. There will be a round-trip voyage operated by the ship, and it will stop at 35 different destinations across three different countries, with trips ranging from seven to 23 days in duration and sailing round-trips from Tokyo.
It gained wide notoriety when the Diamond Princess lost its ability to sail at the beginning of the pandemic, due to an outbreak of COVID-19 in Japan, but it has already begun sailing again since last year, when a COVID-19 outbreak stopped it from traveling.
The MedallionClass ships have now been equipped with the capability of delivering food, drinks, and other items right to the staterooms of their passengers as part of their new MedallionClass ships model, and they also have a turn-by-turn navigational system to aid passengers with their navigation throughout the ship. It is also possible to order food, drinks, and other items for delivery through the application in addition to placing orders online.
According to the Japan National Tourist Organization (JNTO), independent travelers were once again allowed to visit Japan last year, but according to the organization, travelers need to show that they have either received three doses of the COVID-19 vaccine or have had a negative test performed within 72 hours of departure.
