Whatever happened to Prince Rupert BC

Recommended Posts

anyone know why Prince Rupert no longer seems to be a stop on the Alaska itineraries any more??  Everyone seems to call in at Victoria, but I haven't seen any trips with PR in ages..... It was a lovely little stop, and I'd love to visit there again.

Vancouver based ships don't require additional calls, so only Seattle & San Francisco ships must visit a Canadian Port. PR adds a few extra miles to the trip and as Seattle is already further from Alaska than Vancouver, it would further reduce time in Alaska.

 

Believe a few ships per year still stop in PR. Other than cruise ships, both BC Ferries & Alaska State Ferries provide service to PR.

I looked at a Pacific Princess 2020 Alaska itinerary and it shows a stop at Prince Rupert.

I think some coastal cruises may include it.

Many luxury cruise lines still call on Prince Rupert. The bigger ships don't typically anymore. It's a shame - it's a nice place.

You can go there quite frequently on Windstar and Seabourn this year.
