Princess Cruises are renowned for their fine cuisine but now they have announced the launch of a new culinary experience for 2016.
‘Cook My Catch’, will offer passengers the opportunity to have their own catch of the day cooked by the chefs.
This unique experience will be on offer for cruises visiting the Alaskan ports of Ketchikan and Juneau as well as their land vacations based at Kenai Princess Wilderness Lodge and Copper River Princess Wilderness Lodge.Passengers can enjoy select shore excursions which includes Salmon Sport Fishing Adventure in Juneau; Salmon Sport Fishing Expedition; Hunting for Halibut; and the ‘Discovery Exclusive’ Alaska Fishing & Wilderness Dining excursion in Ketchikan. On return from their adventures, passengers and guests can enjoy the fruits of their labors by allowing their catch to be cooked along with the accompaniments they so desire.
‘Cook My Catch’ is part of an enhancement of the North to Alaska program, which will be upgraded in 2016. Along with regional partners, guests can explore the frontier that is Alaska and enjoy a whole new culinary experience whilst enjoying the cultural and educational aspects of the United States most northerly State.
Jan Swartz, President of Princess Cruises expressed her delight at the new enhancements to the program and in particular the new ‘Cook My Catch’ alternative:
“The newest North to Alaska offerings, including ‘Cook My Catch’, truly demonstrates our commitment to provide our guests authentic local experiences in the destinations we visit. Alaska offers so many opportunities to create lifetime memories ultimately ensuring our guests ‘come back new’.”
Passengers on Alaskan cruises with Princess will have the chance to meet sled dog puppies in the Piazza on board the ship, and learn from their handlers how they are trained as well as also have the opportunity to meet the dogs and have photos taken with them.
Alaska is a popular cruising destination for Princess Cruises and in 2016, there will be six ships based within the Alaska region.
