Aug 11. With the forward end of the Railroad Dock in Skagway, Alaska, under threat of a rockslide from the cliff above, Princess Cruises will reroute 11 Alaska sailings this month and next.
A spokesperson for Norwegian Cruise Line said the line has altered several itineraries of the Norwegian Encore through Sept. 25 and that no other ship’ss itineraries have been impacted. Royal Caribbean said its Skagway itineraries will operate as scheduled.
The city closed the forward end of the dock last month, prompting Princess to alter itineraries. Since then, a rockslide occurred on Aug. 3 at the forward section of the Railroad Dock.
Ships can still use the rear portion of the dock, but cruise lines must tender passengers to port to avoid the forward part of the Railroad Dock. Norwegian Cruise Line used this method last week.
