Princess Cruises has added new shore excursions in Alaska that will have guests flying through the treetops on a zip line, and zipping through the waterfront on Harley Davidsons, to name a few options. The “Princess Adventures Ashore” program consists of 13 new adventure-filled activities, and brings the total number of shore excursions available to Princess passengers in Alaska to 137.

The new tours for 2005 include a “Rain Forest Ropes & Zip Line Challenge” in Ketchikan, which engages guests on an obstacle course before setting them off on a 175-foot zip line. A Harley Davidson Motorcycle Tour takes guests on a 55- mile ride along Ketchikan’s waterfront on an authentic Harley.

In Juneau, guests can take a “Photo Safari by Land & Sea,” a unique opportunity for shutterbugs to capture the beauty of Juneau with the help of a professional photography coach. “A Taste of Juneau” combines a visit to Mendenhall Glacier with a stop at the Alaskan Brewing Company and the Taku Smokeries’ Smokehouse, for some handcrafted ales and smoked salmon products. An “Evening Whale Quest” provides guaranteed humpback whale sightings in a serene twilight setting.

In Skagway, an “Afternoon Red Light Delight” includes gold panning, a visit to the Liarsville Gold Rush Trail Camp, and a private party upstairs in the famous Red Onion Saloon and Brothel Museum.

Princess passengers in Victoria can make the most of an evening visit, with the “Dominion Observatory & Stargazing” tour, to scan the heavens through a telescope that was once the world’s largest.

Passengers booked on Princess Alaska cruises are advised to make reservations for all shore excursions by logging on the Cruise Personalizer on princess.com, to ensure they get their first choice of excursions, since they are expected to fill up quickly.
