In the most important cruise news we’ve heard all year, Princess Cruises has announced that it will be bringing sled dog puppies onboard to meet guests on selected Alaska cruises. Get ready for Puppies in the Piazza.

As part of the line’s North to Alaska immersion program the puppies will come onboard into the ship’s atrium area with their handlers, who will talk about the popular polar past time and answer questions.

Other new (though decidedly less adorable) activities include fishing excursions where passengers can catch their own dinner and a meet-and-greet with climbers who have scaled Mount Denali.
