 PRINCESS TOURS FEATURES ALL FIVE REGIONS OF ALASKA
 SEATTLE, Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The following was released today by


Princess Tours:
 Alaska is a land of tremendous diversity. Spanning five different regions, it would take a backpacker walking 1,000 miles per day, over 1,000 years to explore all that Alaska has to offer. The establishment of today's modern technology and tourism, however, make Alaska an accessible and truly unforgettable experience.
 One of the most popular ways to explore Alaska is by taking a cruise and land tour during the summer season. There are several itineraries to choose from, offering a wide variety of experiences in many regions. Although Alaska is vast, it is divided into five regions for convenience: Southeastern, Southcentral, Interior Arctic Coast, and Southwestern and the Aleutians.
 For 1992, Princess Tours, one of Alaska's major tour companies, has added ecological tours into the Southwestern region, making Princess the only cruise and tour company operating in all five regions of Alaska.
 Princess Cruise Ships Make Record Number of Departures
 Six luxury Princess ships sail in the Southeastern region along the Inside Passage or on the Voyage of the Glaciers route across the Gulf to Southcentral Alaska. With a complete selection of diverse cruise tour itineraries, the longest cruise and tour season at 134 days, and a record-breaking 102 scheduled cruise ship departures, Princess offers a wide variety of Alaska programs for 1992.
 Princess Features Resort on the Kenai Peninsula
 Four Princess ships cruise from Vancouver, B.C., to Whittier, Alaska, in the Southcentral region. Passengers experience the abundant glaciers of Prince William Sound and visit Anchorage, the state's largest city. Passengers can choose to extend their vacation to the popular Kenai Peninsula, where Princess is the only cruise and tour company to own and operate a resort, the beautiful Kenai Princess Lodge.
 Princess Exclusives in Alaska's Interior
 Passengers travel to the Interior region aboard Princess' Midnight Sun Express(R) ULTRA DOME(R) luxury rail cars between Anchorage and Fairbanks. The tour includes an overnight stay at Princess' own resort, the Harper Lodge Princess at Denali National Park. In Fairbanks, passengers have the opportunity to experience another Princess exclusive, the World Eskimo -- Indian Olympics, where native athletes demonstrate games of strength and agility that have been passed down through generations of their people.
 Princess Pioneered Prudhoe Bay Route
 Visitors experience the Arctic region when they travel with Princess along the Dalton Highway to Prudhoe Bay, the beginning of the Trans- Alaska Oil Pipeline. Princess pioneered this route, made famous for its abundant wildlife and breathtaking scenery. Other tours to the Arctic communities of Nome and Kotzebue give visitors the opportunity to learn about native customs, see remnants of a historical gold-rush past, and gain an appreciation for life in an Arctic ecosystem.
 New Ecology Tours to Southwestern Region
 In the fifth region of Alaska, Princess is the only cruise and tour company offering itineraries to the Southwestern region and the Aleutian Islands. Princess Tours' new ecology tours visit the Pribilof Islands, famous for seabird rookeries and wildlife, in the Aleutians, and Katmai National Park including the Valley of 10,000 Smokes in the Southwest.
