Ship: Spirit | Sail Date: 08/17/2005 | Destination: Alaska
This was by far the most wonderful cruise that we have experienced. We love carnival cruising! My Family and I have been on seven cruises in the last 4 years with Carnival. The Carribean is always so beautiful and upbeat. We have thoroughly enjoyed each ship and its staff. Carnival provides fantastic service on its spectacular ships. Our most recent cruise was the southbound Alaska cruise. The Spirit had the best personable feeling of all the ships we have been on. This was observed from our room steward all the way to the captain. Every member of the staff that we encountered daily new us by name! The ship was emaculately clean. My family and I went on excursions in each port. The guys went salmon fishing in Sitka and shipped their catch home. We each brought home gold from our gold panning and Salmon Bake in Juneau. We all enjoyed the serenity and majestic views of our 4x4 jeep excursion into the Canadian Yukon. This was great for all ages and our favorite tour. In Ketchikan we visited the Saxmon village and then the exciting Lumberjack Show. What a great finale to our trip. The views from the ship were breath taking. The Glaciers were enormous and the most beautiful shades of blue. We thoroughly enjoyed watching the whales and dolphines in their natural surroundings. Each port of call had its own unique qualities and quaintness. The mountains, trees, and ice were spectacular. This are truly memories to last a lifetime. Thanks Carnival for ANOTHER phenominal cruise! I thank your from my parents, inlaws, husband, son, along with myself. We are all looking forward to our next cruise!
