The four-dog team, driven by Maliko Ubl of TEMSCO Helicopters Mendenhall Glacier Dog Sledding Tours and Alaska Icefield Expedition, mushed their way alongside the ship to give cruisers an official Alaska welcome before they went ashore at Juneau. The passengers got the chance to take photos with the dogs before departing for shore excursions.
Princess Cruises' 'North to Alaska!' experience, introduced this season, features a variety of authentic culinary, educational and entertainment experiences.
The line has seven ships operating seven-day cruises from Vancouver, Whittier and Seattle, and 10-day sailings from San Francisco.
