For the first time, Carnival Cruise Line will offer a 14-day Alaskan adventure round-trip from Long Beach, California.
Launching in September 2017, the trip will feature seven spectacular 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 September 2nd.
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 stunning Alaskan ports of Ketchikan, Skagway, Juneau and Sitka, as well as Vancouver, British Columbia.
Each of these destinations offers a rich history and culture, along with awe-inspiring natural wonders, including calving glaciers, magnificent fjords and native sea and animal life.
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.
“A Carnival Alaska cruise is like no other and with this exciting new 14-day Carnival Journeys adventure, combined with the wide variety of seven- and eight-day voyages, we’re offering guests an incredible array of opportunities to get an up close and personal look at this beautiful sailing region,” said Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line.
