Catch it – and cook it onboard
Princess, which features wild, sustainable Alaska fish and shellfish on its menu every night during its Alaska cruises, has taken fresh-caught a step farther with its “Cook My Catch” program.
"Cook My Catch" is an exclusive culinary experience offering guests the ability to enjoy their own catch of the day while on vacation with the cruise line in Alaska.
The unique cruise dining experience is available on Princess cruise vacations during port calls in Juneau and Ketchikan, as well as stays at Kenai Princess Wilderness Lodge and Copper River Princess Wilderness Lodge.
The new offering is available on select Princess shore excursions, including Salmon Sport Fishing Adventure in Juneau; Salmon Sport Fishing Expedition, Hunting for Halibut and the Discovery Exclusive Alaska Fishing & Wilderness Dining excursions in Ketchikan.
As guests return from their excursion, they select their preferred preparation and accompaniments to be prepared by the culinary team.
“Cook My Catch” is part of the line's North to Alaska program, an enrichment program which debuted last year.
