Alaska seafood featured by Princess Alaska cruises

A new partnership between Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute, or ASMI, and Princess Cruise Lines will bring more Alaska seafood onboard Princess’ Alaska cruises.

Princess Cruise Lines will serve a variety of 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,” according to a press release from ASMI.

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, according to ASMI.

 “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.”

ASMI is a partnership of the state of Alaska and the Alaska seafood industry. ASMI works to promote the benefits of wild and sustainable Alaska seafood and offer seafood industry education.
