Carnival adds another 14-day Alaska adventure

For the first time, Carnival Cruise Line will offer a 14-day Alaska adventure round-trip from Long Beach, Calif., featuring sites such as majestic Hubbard Glacier and a day-long visit to Icy Strait Point, which offers some of the best whale and bear watching in the state and the world’s longest zip-line.

Carnival Splendor will depart Long Beach Aug. 25 and return Sept. 8, 2018.

In addition to a full day at Hubbard Glacier and inaugural call to Icy Strait Point, the 14-day cruise will visit Ketchikan, Skagway, Juneau and Sitka, along with a day-long call at Victoria, British Columbia.

The Carnival Journeys Alaska cruise will also feature unique on-board experiences where guests can enjoy local cuisine, entertainment and cultural opportunities within the various ports of call.  Other activities include photography, cooking and arts and crafts and a 1980s-themed “Throwback Sea Day.”

The Carnival Splendor cruise complements the line’s wide-ranging Alaska schedule that includes a two-week-long voyage round-trip from Long Beach aboard Carnival Miracle in September 2017 and 38 seven- and eight-day voyages aboard Carnival Legend in summer and fall 2017-18.  Several of the seven-day cruises feature a day cruising Glacier Bay National Park, a UNESCO Heritage Site.

“A Carnival Alaska cruise is like no other and with this exciting new 14-day Carnival Journey’s 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.
