We had a great time on this cruise! The Tracy Arm Fjord day was amazing. The ship had blankets to use on the decks and were serving warm beverages that 'hit the spot'. We did not get to see Ketchikan due to mechanical issues on the boat (which we knew in advance) but the other ports (Skagway, Juneau, and Victoria) were beautiful! We did excursions in Skagway (train ride through mountains, salmon bake, 'gold mining', and tour of Red Onion Saloon and brothel) and Juneau (whale watching and Mendenhall Glacier tour) and both were well worth the money! The tour guides were fun and informational. This was our second Carnival Cruise and the service both times was exceptional. We are looking forward to our next cruise in the Caribbean in January 2015 :)

a little out dated with the decor but not my priority anyway.

Looked just like the picture.
Seattle, Washington
Wish the port, airport, and pier were closer in proximity and there was a place to 'store' luggage that wasn't $100 at the airport. Had many hours in Seattle on day of return but didn't want to bring luggage around town.
Cruise Tracy Arm Fjord, Alaska
Bring warm clothes to wear. I even had a scarf and gloves and was glad.
Skagway, Alaska
Town is very cute and interesting. Best of Skagway Tour was definitely worth the money and still had time to shop in town.
Juneau, Alaska
The Whale watching and Mendenhall Glacier Tour was great but only got one hour at the Glacier area and wished it was longer.
Victoria, British Columbia
Due to weather we only got a few hours at this port. What we saw was beautiful.


use the elevator near the dining rooms to avoid long lines at dinner time.
