Princess Alaska Cruise 1976

Recommended Posts

I’ve searched and searched again and can’t find anything. I’m aware that the Ship Mate App shows lots of old itineraries but I’m talking old and they don’t go back that far. In 1976 my family embarked in San Francisco on the Royal Princess (I think) on a 10 day Glacier Bay Cruise and I’m trying to find that itinerary. I know we stopped in Vancouver, BC (the Worlds Fair was going). We went to Ketchikan, Juneau, Glacier Bay and Sitka. I just can’t remember if there was anywhere else. Any ideas out there where I can find this information? Thank you.

I can't answer your question but since you cruised to Alaska in 1976 on a much smaller ship than those now in service, the ship probably didn't move at today's speed.  So I don't imagine there were any other stops than those you mentioned as it may have taken 2 days each out of and back to San Francisco, plus it now takes one day between Vancouver and Ketchikan.  If there was another port or scenic sailing, one possibility would be College Fjord and/or Hubbard Glacier.  We visited both for the first and only time on our first Alaska cruise in 1996.

Are you sure you have the correct year?  The World's Fair in Vancouver was in 1986 and the Royal Princess didn't come into the Princess fleet until 1984.

My mistake. I meant 1986. Thank you for catching my error.
