From epic natural wonders in Alaska and timeless treasures in Europe to ancient cities in the Americas, here are three spectacular destinations you’ll want to book now for your next adventure.

1. Alaska

Hear the thunder of bright blue glaciers calving into the ocean. Stand in awe of majestic mountains soaring above jewel-like lakes. Witness wildlife roaming through unspoiled wilderness. There’s a reason the Great Land is on so many travel wish lists. Sail the Inside Passage to experience natural wonders along one of the most stunning waterways in the world. Get a front row seat to Alaska’s granite cliffs and forested shores featuring cascading waterfalls. And spot humpback whales, orcas, seals and other marine life as they swim alongside the ship. Stop in Gold Rush-era ports for history and regional cuisine, like fresh Alaska seafood from Tracy’s King Crab Shack, loved by visitors and locals alike. Visit Juneau, a city which can only be accessed by boat or aircraft, and enjoy awe-inspiring views of the Endicott Arm and Dawes Glacier.

Experience the majesty and wildlife of Denali National Park. Ride aboard the exclusive Direct-to-the-Wilderness  rail service and unwind at Princess-owned wilderness lodges.

 

 

2. Europe

Dive into the rich history and diverse cultures of more than 30 different countries while only unpacking once. Sail to the different regions of Europe to explore quaint villages, world-class cities, fairytale castles and other legendary lands. In the Mediterranean, walk the ruins of ancient Rome and Athens, see art at the Vatican Museum, admire views of Santorini’s Red Beach and visit the haunting ruins of Pompeii. Voyage to Northern Europe to enjoy late-night calls in classic cities like Copenhagen, Berlin and Oslo. Follow in the footsteps of ancient Viking explorers in Norway and Iceland — or go even further afield to Greenland — and explore the Land of the Midnight Sun. Or take a cruise to the British Isles to enjoy hillside castles, welcoming pubs, the prehistoric wonder of Stonehenge and the rugged Scottish Highlands. Whichever region you choose, you’ll discover why Princess has been awarded “Best Europe itineraries” by Women’s Choice Awards.

3. South America & Antarctica 

From glittering cities and vibrant cultures to incredible landscapes full of natural beauty, South America offers one-of-a-kind experiences from ship to shore. Enjoy the thrill of sailing through the Strait of Magellan and see the 19th-century treasures of cosmopolitan Buenos Aires. Immerse yourself on board through regional entertainment, like Argentine folkloric performances and a Carnival festival, plus locally inspired cuisine and wine. And visit UNESCO World Heritage Sites like the Patagonian Nature Reserve, the Historic Centre of Peru or the Lines and Geoglyphs of Nasca and Palpa in Peru. Or set out on an epic journey from Ushaia to witness the breathtaking beauty of Antarctica and see why Condé Nast Traveler named the pristine continent #1 on their list of “The Best Places to Travel.” Marvel at captivating views of the legendary Amalia Glacier and make friends with the famous Falkland Island penguins as you sail to the very bottom of the world.Strait of Magellan and see the 19th-century treasures of cosmopolitan Buenos Aires.
