Carnival Alaska Cruise Options

The Carnival Miracle will make 20 trips to Alaska during the Cruise Season, beginning in early May and ending in mid-September. Your three options are:

  • The cruise available during the majority of the Alaska Cruise season is the 7 day Alaska tour which begins in Seattle, cruises through the Tracy Arm Fjord, and stops in Skagway, Juneau, Ketchikan, Victoria, BC, Canada, and ends in Seattle. You will get only 4 short hours (7am - 1pm) in Ketchikan on this cruise and, trust me, you'll want more! This cruise begins on Tuesday and ends the following Tuesday.

  • The very first Cruise of the season is in late April. The 8 Day Glacier Bay cruise that begins in Vancouver, BC, Canada cruises the Inside Passage, visits Glacier Bay, and makes stops in Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, and ends in Seattle, WA. This option will score you 9 whole hours in Ketchikan! This cruise begins on Monday and ends on Tuesday.

  • The very last Carnival Alaska Cruise of the season is in mid-September and is the 7 day Glacier Bay Tour that begins in Seattle and makes stops in Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay, Ketchikan, & ends in Vancouver, BC, Canada. This cruise begins and ends on Tuesday and will allow you to explore Ketchikan for 8 hours!

My very first cruise was aboard the Carnival Spirit and I loved it.

The ship was beautiful, the entertainment incredible, there were plenty of activities to keep me busy, and the food and staff were excellent!  It was the perfect experience for my first cruise.

Carnival Cruise Line is considered a budget cruise line and is often the least expensive option for Alaskan cruises.

Prices for a 7 day Carnival Alaska cruise begin at around $600/person and go up from there depending on the type of room you choose and the month you visit.
