ALASKA paloma villaverde de rico PRINCESS DEBUT Princess Cruises is introducing the largest ship to sail in Alaska to date, the 3,082-passenger Crown Princess, sailing the Voyage of the Glaciers route that runs through the Gulf of Alaska. This summer will also see the return of Princess Cruises' small-ship cruising on the Pacific Princess, which will sail the Inside Passage from Vancouver. or HOLLAND AMERICA LINE'S LAND + SEA KENAI FJORDS WILDERNESS LODGE The recently renovated Kenai Fjords Wilderness Lodge, located on a privately owned parcel of land on Fox Island, and nestled in the woods between the oceanside pebble beach and a quiet island lagoon, is offering a new culinary program that includes behind-the-scenes access to the lodge kitchen, where guests will learn the basics of handling and cooking fresh Alaskan seafood. or Holland America Line has rebranded its CruiseTour program as Land+Sea Journeys, with more time in marquee destinations and less overland travel time. There's now a 1-hour flight that brings Fairbanks, AK, and Dawson City, Yukon closer together, replacing up to two days of motorcoach travel and an overnight hotel stay. The Land+Sea Journeys run May-September and are simplified with 12 options ranging in length from 10 to 20 days in two series: Yukon+Denali Land+Sea Journeys and Denali Land+Sea Journeys. They combine a 3- to 7-night Holland America Line cruise with an overland adventure that includes a 1- to 3-night stay at Denali National Park. CRUISE + AIR NEWS Celebrity Cruises and Norwegian Cruise Line will add Icy Strait Point, a small-ship cruise port located 30 miles west of Juneau, as a port of call for two ships, the Celebrity Solstice and the Norwegian Pearl. Delta Air Lines will offer seasonal flights between Seattle and Juneau beginning May 29.;; WINTERLAKE LODGE Located 198 trail miles northwest of Anchorage, along Alaska's Iditarod Trail and with views of the Trimble Glacier, Winterlake Lodge launched three outdoor excursions this winter, including an overnight snowmobile excursion that follows the Iditarod National Historic Trail, as well as a cross-country ski opportunity on nearby Wolverine Mountain. Winter rates start at $1,050 pp for a 1-night stay, and that includes roundtrip air from Anchorage, accommodations, meals, most excursions, complimentary yoga and massage. After the first night, it's $600 pp for additional nights, so a 2-night stay is $1,650. or 48 march 2014 48-51 CR Alaska.indd 48 2/20/14 1:53 PM Recome
