Verified Review
7 Night Alaska (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 31, 2011
Ship: Carnival Spirit
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago

Air condiitioning in stateroom too warm and crew would not adjust due to others complaining about being too cool. No individual adjustment. Closed balcony of room from 9:30 AM to 1:00 PM on 6th day of Cruise for washing of decks thus not available to use the balcony we paid for. This could have been done when at port instead of while at sea.

Food and Dining

Not enough serving lines open resulting in long line on deck 9.

Excellent - Eagles upon arrival at port. Hatchery - Disappointment as not enough time allowed and tour not too good. Slamon Bake - Too Rushed and crowded transport with not enough room for all passengers back to ship before departure creating anxiety, spoiling meal.
Don't Miss: Mendenhall Glacier - Excellent, but rushed.
5 out of 5
Saxman Village was good.

Pros: Skagway Railway and time to shop

Cons: Not enough time on some excursions - Juneau Salmon Bake and hatchery disappointing - Rushed
