Carnival offers new Alaska itinerary

Carnival offers new Alaska itinerary

Carnival has announced its 2017-18 Alaska cruise schedule, including a new 14-day adventure sailing in September next year.

Carnival will offer a 14-day Alaskan adventure round-trip from Long Beach, Calif., in September 2017 featuring seven destinations, including Glacier Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the line’s first visit to Icy Strait Point, an unspoiled wilderness area offering some of the best whale and bear watching in the state and the world’s longest zip-line. The one-of-a-kind voyage -- part of the line’s Carnival Journeys cruise enrichment series -- will take place aboard Carnival Miracle departing Long Beach Sept. 2 and returning Sept. 16, 2017.

In addition to a full-day sailing Glacier Bay and Carnival’s inaugural call to Icy Strait Point, the 14-day cruise will feature the Alaskan ports of Ketchikan, Skagway, Juneau and Sitka, as well as Vancouver.

Guests sailing on the special 14-day Carnival Journeys cruise will also enjoy unique on-board experiences where they can sample Alaskan cuisine and enjoy local entertainment and cultural opportunities within the various ports of call. Activities focusing on a broad range of topics – everything from photography and cooking to arts and crafts and celestial navigation - along with a 1980s-themed "Throwback Sea Day."

Carnival Legend will also offer 38 seven - and eight-day Alaska voyages in 2017 and 2018, including seven week-long Glacier Bay cruises next year - the most voyages by Carnival to this region, which features majestic glaciers and other ice formations and is home to numerous whales, bears and other wildlife.

The seven- and eight-day voyages operate either round-trip from Seattle or from Vancouver to Seattle, visiting a variety of ports, including Skagway, Juneau, Ketchikan, and Victoria, BC, plus a full-day cruising Tracy Arm Fjord or Glacier Bay.
