The tourist season began early this year for Juneau, and it will end a day late.
The Star Princess will arrive in the capital city today instead of Wednesday, as scheduled. The cruise ship got a late start out of San Francisco because of bad weather, said Kirby Day, who oversees port logistics and port operations for Princess Cruises.
“Rather than eliminating Juneau as a port, we’re coming a day late,” Day said in a phone interview. “That was better than losing a port call, we thought.”
