Great Alaska Cruise Experience

Sail Date: June 01, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Oceanview

This was our first cruise. We were pleasntly surprised how easy the process was and thoroughly enjoyed the cruise. Scenery was spectacular, food was great. service was superb. We would definitely recommend to anyone interested in going to Alaska on a 7 night cruise. Staff is very lnowledgable and helpgul.

Pros: Great experience, very helpful staff, scenery, excellent food choices, some well performed shows

Cons: not enough activities for 18-21 age group, smoking in the cruise ship

Recommends Carnival Spirit? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Cramped but manageable
Above average with some Las Vegas style shows. Comedy shows were avarage.
Children's Programs
For those in 18 to 21 years of age, not many choices are available. Did not like smoking allowed in dance clubs.
Ship Quality
Opulent decor, clean areas, easily accessible
Food and Dining
Appetizers and deserts were excellent. Entrees were good but not great. The service and experience makes up more than lack of freshness in some main entree items (especially some sea food and steaks)
Service and Staff
Everyone of the staff was exceptionally nice.
Juneau, Alaska
Mendenhall glacier is a must see. Spending too much time in all the shops is a waste of time. The same shops exist in all 3 ports.
Don't Miss: Mendenhall glacier walk
Victoria, British Columbia
Walking along the city streets filled with flowers is a great experience
Don't Miss: Empress hotel history, photographs
Skagway, Alaska
Soapy Smith show and ride to White pass summit was really a good value. Train ride may not be all that is advertised. A better view by driving than taking the train.
Don't Miss: Soapy Smith show
Ketchikan, Alaska
Great place to see salmon run, eagles fly and nest, wolves walking and whales sighting. Native Saxman village is informative
Don't Miss: Wild life
