Carnival’s 2017 Alaska season kicked off this week and runs through September with seven- and eight-day voyages departing from Seattle aboard Carnival Legend.

The new activities include a Frontier Festival deck party with parlor games, ice carving demonstrations and an Alaska-themed photo booth, along with trivia games, the Carnival Gold Bar tower game, and Gold Rush bingo where the winners pan for gold in search of the $750 grand prize.

During Creative Cove arts classes, guests can create vibrant canvases featuring Alaska scenes like a whale tail in a moonlit ocean, an abstract of the famous Northern Lights and more.   Many of the activities are hosted by crew members dressed as historical figures from the Gold Rush and Klondike eras.

Carnival Legend will operate 18 Alaska cruises from the Port of Seattle from May 9 to Aug. 29, 2017.  Port calls on these voyages include the popular Alaskan destinations of Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan, as well as Victoria, B.C., and cruising Tracy Arm Fjord.   There is also an eight-day voyage departing Seattle Sept. 5 and arriving in Vancouver Sept. 13 with stops at Juneau, Skagway, Glacier Bay, Sitka and Ketchikan along the way.

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. A wide range of shore excursions – from helicopter flightseeing and rainforest canopy tours to hiking, canoeing and kayaking expeditions – are also available. Carnival Legend also features an on-board naturalist who educates guests on the region’s colorful history and points out animal and marine life from the ship’s bridge.

Carnival Legend is the ideal ship for Alaska, with 80 percent of staterooms featuring an ocean view or balcony along with stunning indoor and outdoor promenades – perfect for viewing the spectacular surroundings.
