For the first time, Carnival Cruise Line will offer a 14-day Alaskan adventure round-trip from Long Beach, Calif., in September 2017.
The itinerary features seven 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 Sept. 2 and returning Sept. 16.
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 Alaskan ports of Ketchikan, Skagway, Juneau and Sitka, as well as Vancouver.
A range of shore excursions – from helicopter flightseeing and rainforest canopy tours to hiking, canoeing and kayaking expeditions, and alpine lake snorkeling – are available.
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.
