Christine Duffy, President of Carnival Cruise Line, gave the following statement: “A Carnival Alaska cruise is like no other and with this exciting new 14-day Carnival Journeys 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.”
Each of these destinations offers a rich history and culture, along with awe-inspiring natural wonders, including calving glaciers, magnificent fjords and native sea and animal life.
