After more than a year without passengers, Alaska recently welcomed its first large cruise ships for a shortened season.

Through October, seven different mainstream cruise brands will operate in the region, with eight vessels and the potential to carry over 200,000 guests at 100 percent occupancy in the Last Frontier.

Royal Caribbean International will lead in market capacity, with two ships and over 6,200 berths at full occupancy.

Norwegian Cruise Line will be second, with one ship and 4,200 berths, followed by Princess Cruises, with one ship and 3,600 berths with the Majestic Princess, which just returned from its first week-long cruise roundtrip from Seattle.  

Before the pandemic, the Alaska market was set to have record high capacity in 2021.

According to data from the 2021 Cruise Industry News Annual Report, the region could have seen just under 1.4 million cruise guests, with Norwegian Cruise Line, Princess Cruises and Holland America Line having the lion's share of the market.
