The start of Carnival’s popular Alaska cruise season is right around the corner, with the 2,124-passenger Carnival Spirit embarking on its first 2009 voyage to the Last Frontier May 13. Carnival Spirit’s 2009 Alaska program will consist of 19 seven-day voyages—16 Glacier Route and three Glacier Bay cruises—through Sept 9.
The week-long Glacier Route voyages operate either northbound from Vancouver to Whittier/Anchorage or southbound Whittier/Anchorage to Vancouver calling at Skagway, Juneau, Ketchikan and Sitka and cruising Prince William Sound, College Fjord and the Inside Passage. The three Glacier Bay cruises operate round-trip from Vancouver on May 6, Sept. 2, and Sept 9, and feature Juneau, Skagway and Ketchikan, along with two full days cruising the Inside Passage.
In addition to the opportunity to view magnificent Alaskan scenery—calving glaciers, massive snow-covered mountains and rugged fjords—guests sailing on the Carnival Spirit can enjoy all that this exciting “Fun Ship” has to offer. From fun-filled activities for adults and kids alike to captivating entertainment and delicious cuisine—including special menus featuring local Alaskan delicacies—the Carnival Spirit is truly the ideal way to explore the 49th state.
