Join Us In the Wilds of Alaska as We Sail Onboard the Emerald Princess

Join us for an incredible week in the wilds of Alaska as we sail with Princess Cruises onboard the Emerald Princess. Begin your journey in Seattle, where you can explore the shops and restaurants of Pike Place Market and the waterfront, ascend the Space Needle for an incredible city view, or explore the Seattle Aquarium. After boarding, we'll sail to Ketchikan, where you can soar through the air on a zipline or take a nature hike to observe bears. Next, we'll voyage through Tracy Arm Fjord, where some of Alaska's largest glaciers reside. Marvel at the cascading waterfalls and turquoise waters before cruising to Juneau, where salmon bakes and whale watching await. The adventure continues in Skagway, where you can ride the rails and learn about gold rush history. Our final stop is Victoria, British Columbia, where you can enjoy the beautiful gardens and history of this city before returning to Seattle.

Enhance Your Conference with Shore Excursions

You deserve a break! There are several opportunities to explore the local area with excursions available throughout the cruise. Join the fun, experience something unique, make new connections, or reunite with old friends. This is your vacation – we want you to enjoy every moment!

I was surprised how dynamic the instructors were, and the twist they were able to put not the subject matter to keep my interest. I will definitely be making Western CPE my in-person conference CPE vendor of choice in the future.
