If you’re looking for a cruise vacation that’s a little bit out of the way and a little bit out of the ordinary, make an Alaska cruise your first choice. If your first thought is “Alaska… cool!” you’re on the right track — even in the mild summer season, you should still pack your sweater. Grab it and get up here because Alaska is a natural wonder through and through, and the coastal panhandle region Carnival sails to is perhaps the most stunning. On an Alaska cruise you’ll find not only quaint towns and scenic harbor vistas, but the best of nature — including fjords, wildlife and mountains galore. “Oh, mother nature… now you’re just showing off.”
- Get up and go glacier-gazing, big time.
- Follow hiking trails to catch some grand scenery.
- Grab binoculars and whale-watch some big ones.
