Princess Cruises and Holland America Line operate lodges in Denali that allow cruisers to extend their Alaska cruises with land based stays.

While the cruise lines are currently assessing their options for cruises to Alaska this year, Holland America and Princess Cruises sent out the following message saying they will open at least one of their lodges this year.

“Despite the potential impact to our Alaska sailings, we are committed to operating one of our two Denali lodges, the Westmark Fairbanks Hotel and Kenai Princess Wilderness Lodge this summer to support land vacations in Alaska’s magnificent interior.

We will continue to maintain a focus on what we can do to support our fellow Alaska businesses, the thousands of people who rely on the tourism industry, and the regions in which we operate.”

They went on to say that they are consulting authorities in both the U.S. and Canada before they make any other decisions regarding cruises.

They also stated their importance to the economic health of many Alaskan communities and will continue to pursue any option which might permit safe operation of any portion of the season.
