More Ships Cruising Alaska
If any cruise region has benefited in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks -- and the subsequent repositioning of ships from Europe and other more exotic destinations to closer-in places -- it’s Alaska. This summer, Holland America, Princess, and Celebrity have all added a ship that wasn’t on the original schedule; Seabourn is sending one of its triplets there for the first time in years.

Now it looks like 2003 might be another peak-traffic year for Alaska as Holland America has announced it will send seven ships there and offer not only the traditional seven day sea program but also longer voyages of ten and 11 days from Seattle.

In the meantime -- if it’s February it’s what’s-Alaska-going-to-tax time; Governor Tony Knowles is planning, but hasn’t yet introduced, legislation calling for a new $30 per head cruise tax. We’ll keep you updated on its progress (or lack thereof).
