And Just Like That...There Will Be An Alaska Season
Princess, Holland America and Carnival will all be sailing from Seattle in July with fully vaccinated guests.
Carnival Corporation announced today that three of its brands will be sailing in Alaska in July. This announcement follows the passing of legislation that will allow to sail from Seattle to Alaska without stopping in Canada.
Carnival Corporation CEO Arnold Donald issued the following statement "We are excited to once again serve our guests from the U.S., and we express our deep gratitude to all national, state and local officials who have worked collaboratively with us, the CDC and our entire industry to make this possible. It is great news for cruising, for travelers ready to again explore the world and for all the communities in Alaska that depend on cruising and have suffered great hardships over the past year," said Arnold Donald, CEO of Carnival Corporation.
"As one of America's natural treasures, Alaska is a land of beauty and wonder, and one of the most popular destinations for our guests. We look forward to our brands restarting this summer from the U.S. while also supporting our longtime partners and the communities in Alaska."
