Cruise ship plying the waters of Alaska’s Inside PassageIn the past, cruising has been viewed as a relaxing and sedentary vacation. Thankfully, today’s cruise vacations encompass a broad spectrum of activities and onshore excursions allowing cruise travelers a choice to be active or relaxed.

And so Princess Cruises has announced its new shore excursions for the 2008 Alaska cruise season that will appeal to both the active and relaxed traveler. In total, cruise vacationers will have a choice of 37 new activities.

“We’ve worked closely with many local tour providers to showcase the wide array of rich culture, wildlife and natural beauty that can be experienced by our passengers,” commented Charlie Ball, president of Princess Tours.

He added that it was a “delight” to offer passengers new ways in which to experience Alaska.

Travelers can opt to learn the art of glass blowing, eat at an Alaskan chef’s table, take a zipline tour and discover how a commercial fishing vessel operates.

Sounds good to me!
