Carnival to do a 14 day Alaskan Cruise

This came across my FB feed: http://cruisefever.net/08241-carnival-cruise-line-offering-first-14-day-alaskan-cruise/

Found it interesting... 14 day is a nice length, offers a different start point than the typical Seattle or Vancouver. I like the length of the cruise, and even don't mind the start point (flights might be high, but I have family on the west coast). 

 

Curious to others thoughts. Will anyone be booking the 14 day with Carnival? Alaska is on my list (and the BF's) but not sure if I can pull him away from RCI and go Carnival

This is something to look at for a later date. I will show it to my wife.

I looked into it, if you live in LA or area this would work. For me, It is easier to sail out of Vancouver, as I live in Canada. Not to bad pricing though..

Definitely something to consider, at least for me. Alaska is on my bucket list for sure. Not so much my husband, though.

I'm still trying to change his mind!

I am not sure why you husband does not want to sail Carnival, however, you might tell him the Carnival Alaskan cruise seemed more "adult" than their Caribbean sailings. The passenger make-up tends to be older and the party atmosphere is subdued. It isn't completely gone, but if you want to do this and no other cruise line is offering the same deal....go for it.  We had a wonderful time on our Alaskan cruise.

Although a 14-day Alaskan cruise does interest me...

 

It would be wonderful if it included a land-tour and more ports.

 

Having more days at sea does not constitute and improvement to the current 7-day cruise offered.

We live very close to the Rocky Mountains and travel through them a few times a year, so I've always said I don't need to see more on an Alaskan cruise. I'd much rather see  beach when it's cold and dreary at home. Well, I think I've changed my mind - this cruise looks awesome. Unfortunately we already have a cruise booked plus land vacation for 2017, so another 2 weeks off work is not possible after all.

Living in L.A.,  this sounds great,  no air fair needed,   just the limo to the airport and home...... I will bring this up to some friends Big Smile

While I truly enjoyed our Alaskan cruise, however, the mountains were not that impressive to this native of Colorado with the Rocky Mountains visible from our bedroom. But we don't see many whales or ice floes from a ship here. I am very happy we did this cruise, yet I enjoy seeing beaches and palm trees when we vacation (something we do not have).

Carnival is not the cruise line of choice for Alaska.  Princess is our top pick. Then HAL. Then Norwegian.   I doubt we would get to our 3rd choice.

Okay. Ya got me.

Carnival isn't our first choice for anything. Yummy
