The dog days of summer cruising have arrived — at least in Alaska where a dog sled team earlier this month “pulled” the Ruby Princess into Juneau during her maiden voyage in Southeast Alaska.

The four-dog sled team, driven by Maliko Ubl of TEMSCO Helicopters Mendenhall Glacier Dog Sledding Tours and Alaska Icefield Expedition, didn’t actually pull the ship. (They might need a few more dogs for that!) Rather, they “mushed” their way alongside the cruise ship. Disembarking guests then had the chance to get a photo with with the pups before leaving for shore excursions.

Princess’ Alaska cruise season features seven ships offering week-long itineraries from the ports of Vancouver, Whittier and Seattle; and 10-day sailings from San Francisco. Additional information about Princess Cruises is available through a professional travel consultant, by calling 1-800-PRINCESS (1-800-774-6237), or by visiting the company’s website at princess.com.
