 ^PRINCESS" CRUISES
TO
ALASKA
SUMMER 1954
VANCOUVER TO SKAGWAY
AND  RETURN  BY THE  SMOOTH INSIDE  PASSAGE
PRINCE RUPERT - KETCHIKAN - JUNEAU
IN   DIRECT   CONNECTION WITH   "PRINCESS''   STEAMSHIP   SERVICE
FROM
SEATTLE-VICTORIA
The Canadian Pacific "Princess" route to Alaska is by the
famous ulnside Passage," a sea voyage in smooth water
sheltered by mountainous islands that protect the scenic
coasts of British Columbia and Alaska. Daylight is many
hours long in the summer, long enough for your cruise
through the wooded, narrow channels and fiords to become
an unforgettable memory. And, an average summer
temperature of 65°.
U. S. Transportation tax applies on all tickets sold in U. S.
2,000-MILE, 8V2-DAY CRUISES
AS LOW AS $180
(May 12th — September 15th inclusive)
FROM VANCOUVER (includins berth and meals to
Skagway and return.)
 ALASKA AND THE YUKON
Old and new combine "down north" to make your visit to Alaska and the Yukon a memorable
one. The White Pass and Yukon Route, by rail from Skagway to Whitehorse, and the many
side trips available open up the country that inspired the songs of Robert W. Service, that
witnessed the gold rush of '98.
Add to this the Alaska Highway, an engineering marvel of today—a bus route where once
was only mountain and muskeg—and the swift, clean lanes of the upper air where Canadian
Pacific Airlines lengthen your stay by shortening your travel time in Alaska and the Yukon
and you have the modern answer to the old question of where to go this year.
The track of the White Pass and Yukon Railroad literally follows "The Trail of '98" from
Skagway along mountainsides, across spidery trestles, spans historic "Dead Horse Gulch" to
Bennett. Twelve miles farther on is White Pass. This station is the boundary point where Union
Jack and Stars and Stripes fly side by side—where you may get your first sight of Stetson-hatted,
scarlet-coated Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
The wide plain that leads to Whitehorse gives you mountain views, sight of the upper Yukon
River and your first crossing of the Alaska Highway.
"PRINCESS" COMFORT INCLUDES
Hot and cold running water in every stateroom.
Reading light over each berth.
Porthole in every stateroom.
I -'7: St"
Princess Louise accommodation is spacious and comfortable
ENTERTAINMENT
FEATURES
Even though you cruise
to   "The   Land   of   the
Midnight   Sun",   there
are some hours of darkness when   gay  parties,
dancing, bridge, canasta
and other social activities    while    away    the
time.
The   social   hostess,   in
addition,   arran ges
motion    picture    shows
and    informal   talks   on
the ports of call.
Daytime    fun    includes
shuffleboard, table tennis,   quoits   and   horse
racing.
COMFORTABLE
CLOTHES
Your choice of clothes
for your Alaska  cruise
depends   largely   upon
your   own    tastes   and
habits. For climatic comfort our best suggestion
is that you plan as you
would    for    spring    at
home — except,   of
course, that residents of
southern   United   States
and   similar   climates
should   include  warmer
clothing   in   their   luggage.
Stout    shoes    for    the
hikers, and fishing tackle
for those who want to
try their skill in northern
lakes   and   streams,   especially   in  the  Yukon
territory,   are   a    good
bet.
Panelled comfort in a deluxe room
Introduction Dinner
On the evening of the first day out from Vancouver a
special introduction dinner menu is served and the occasion
is a gala one, at which with the aid of the social hostess
and your own goodwill, everyone becomes acquainted
at the very start of the voyage.
Up-to-date Information
So that you may know what to look for and thoroughly
enjoy the magnificent scenic aspects of your cruise, there
will be two interesting talks given by the Purser. These are
informal and take place at about 9.30 a.m. the day after
you leave Vancouver and about 2.30 p.m. the day after
leaving Prince Rupert.
News
News bulletins are made available to passengers daily
usually at the breakfast table—to keep you up to date on
the latest news highlights, and you will find the ship's
bulletin "Alaska Princess" very useful.
Embarkation at Vancouver
You may join your Canadian Pacific "Princess" at Vancouver any time after 5.30 p.m. P.S.T. An appetizing
cold plate Buffet will be served aboard your Alaska
"Princess" liner shortly after sailing from Vancouver for
passengers   who   have   not   dined   before   embarkation.
 Cosy and friendly, the dining room
Divine Service
Divine Services are held on board every Sunday when
clergymen are available.

Your round trip fare to Skagway includes, of course, berth
and meals enroute, breakfast on arrival, and dinner on
departure day. It does not include meals and berth while
your "Princess" is in port at Skagway. But if you are
making the round trip in the same "Princess" liner you
may arrange to stay on board at Skagway. Your berth will
cost $2.50 for a standard lower, $2.00, upper, in an
ordinary room. Meals are at the regular tariff rates.

 BAGGAGE
Each adult ticket includes free carriage of 150 lbs. of
baggage, and each half ticket, 75 lbs. Baggage in excess
of these weights is carried between Seattle, Victoria,
Vancouver and Skagway at a charge of $6.80 per 100 lbs.
Staterooms can accommodate steamer trunks not more than
14 inches high, but you will find it more convenient to
have trunks properly cared for in the ship's baggage room.
Unless bonded, they are readily accessible during the
voyage.
Free Storage
At Seattle, Victoria and Vancouver, round-trip passengers' baggage can be stored free for not more than 30
days, after which regular charges are made.
BONDED BAGGAGE
Baggage that you are sure will not be needed during the
voyage may be checked between Seattle and Skagway
in bond and customs examination avoided. But, if you plan
to use it on the voyage, check to Victoria or Vancouver.
Canadian customs examination will be carried out before
you board your Alaska-bound "Princess". Northbound,
U.S. customs inspection is made at Ketchikan where
baggage checked from Vancouver or Victoria to Skagway
may be examined, or bonded, as you wish.
Baggage for White Horse
If you have through tickets from Puget Sound or British
Columbia points to Whitehorse via the White Pass and
Yukon Route, your baggage can be checked to and
examined at destination without inspection at Skagway.
Also free of inspection is corded and sealed baggage
from British Columbia points passing through Alaska in
bond.
Southbound
Canadian Customs inspection of southbound baggage is
made at Prince Rupert; U.S., at Seattle. If you are travelling
east by Canadian Pacific Railway to a U.S. point you may
have your U.S. Customs inspection at Vancouver and
check to destination in bond.
IMMIGRATION ARRANGEMENTS
For passengers entering Alaska from Canada, U.S. Immigration Inspection is held at Ketchikan. Bona fide tourists
do not find it strict. To simplify and speed the work of the
inspectors your "Princess" Purser makes up the Manifest
required from information as to age, residence, business,
etc., obtained from you.
The Purser will give you a card to present to the Immigration inspector when he boards your "Princess" at Ketchikan. As soon as the inspector checks with the Manifest
you may go ashore. A similar inspection is carried out by
Canadian Immigration officials at Prince Rupert on the
southbound voyage. Both inspections are simple formalities for tourists.
FARES FROM PRINCE RUPERT
Fares from Prince Rupert to Skagway are the same as from
Vancouver to Skagway and return to Prince Rupert or
Vancouver—or, vice versa.
