With the picturesque Alaska mountain coastline as a backdrop, a jump in the pool or jacuzzi is an inviting proposition.

Movies under the stars on the Coral Princess Alaska cruise

Given the long daylight hours in Alaska during the summer, it might not exactly be movies “under the stars,” but it still works.

16. Watch a musical production show

I’m always game to watch the talented singers and dancers in the Princess cruise production shows. Go an extra little bit before showtime to grab a front row center seat. No TKTS needed!

17. Take a bite of a Baked Alaska in Alaska

It’s traditionally the featured dessert on the last night of all Princess cruises, and when in Alaska, it seems fitting to have a Baked Alaska.
