Alaska Seafood to Headline Alaska Cruises

Alaska Business Magazine

 A new partnership between Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute (ASMI) and Princess Cruise Lines launched today, bringing more Alaska Seafood onboard Princess’s award winning Alaska cruises.

Juneau, Alaska (Feb 9, 2015): Princess Cruise Lines is partnering with the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute (ASMI) to serve a variety of new Alaska cuisine onboard, including king crab, king salmon and fresh halibut. Not only will there be a dedicated Alaska cuisine themed night in the main dining rooms, but there will also be a special Alaska cuisine menu in the Crown Grill and Bayou Cafe on select evenings. Princess chefs will also be specially trained by Alaska Seafood chefs, ensuring the preparation and taste is authentically Alaska.

The winning dish of the 2014 Great Alaska Seafood Cook-Off, pan seared Alaska salmon with root vegetable hash and mushroom tea by Chef Travis Haugen of Southside Bistro, will be featured in the main dining rooms onboard.

“This partnership has been in the works for a long time, and we’re really pleased these great programs are the outcome,” said ASMI Communications Director Tyson Fick. “We can’t think of a better souvenir to bring home from your cruise to Alaska than an appreciation for Alaska seafood. We thank Princess for their commitment to giving their guests a true Alaska experience complete with our delicious, healthy sustainable seafood.”
