SANTA CLARITA, (September 13, 2011) – Princess Cruises today revealed the Interior of Alaska as “Essential Experience #47” on its blog, “50 Essential Experiences: The Travel Bucket List,” leaving only three more experiences yet to be revealed to complete the list of 50. This week District Sales Manager Judy Bliss recounts how Alaska has always been at the top of her bucket list, and how the state’s interior region, including Denali National Park, became her honeymoon destination.

She writes: “Denali National Park has its own rhythm of movement that changes with the seasons and has influenced my life in one way or another with each subsequent visit. Closest to my heart, my Alaska story leads to love. As my passion for this place increased over the years, I have the 49th state to thank for introducing me to my husband, Barry, also a lover of the ‘Great Land.’” read more

These and other stories can be found online at www.50EssentialExperiences.com, where a new experience is unveiled weekly. Each is authored by a Princess destination expert – a long-serving and well-traveled shipboard or shoreside employee.

One of the best-known names in cruising, Princess Cruises first set sail in 1965 with a single ship cruising to Mexico. Today, the line has grown to become the third largest cruise line in the world, renowned for innovative ships, an array of onboard options, and an environment of exceptional customer service. A recognized leader in worldwide cruising, Princess offers approximately 1.3 million passengers each year the opportunity to escape to the top destinations around the globe, aboard a fleet of 17 modern vessels.

Princess Cruises was catapulted to stardom in 1977 when one of its ships, Pacific Princess, was cast in a starring role on a new television show called “The Love Boat.” The weekly series, which introduced millions of viewers to the concept of a sea-going vacation, was an instant hit and both the company name and its “seawitch” logo have remained synonymous with cruising ever since. The show, which can still seen around the world, has been widely credited with fueling the dramatic expansion of the industry.
