Passengers on some Princess cruises in Alaska in 2016 will have a chance to play and pose with sled dog puppies as part of a program of local experiences.

The “Puppies in the Piazza” concept brings junior sled dogs to the atrium of Princess ships for a meet-and-greet with passengers. Guests can interact with the animals, take pictures and meet the dog handlers responsible for training them, Princess said.

Also new to the “North to Alaska” program this summer will be a chance for passengers to dine on fish that they catch during fishing excursions.

Salmon and halibut are the centerpieces of several shore excursions offered by Princess in Alaska. As guests return from their excursion, they select their preferred preparation and accompaniments to be prepared by the culinary team for either lunch or dinner.

The fish must be caught on authorized Princess shore excursions at port calls in Juneau and Ketchikan or on cruise tours where guests stay at Princess’ Kenai or Copper River wilderness lodges.
