My TA has a group going to Alaska 6/20/01. It's on the new Carnival Spirit (80% balcony cabins). Her rates are really good. It's our second trip to Alaska, once is not enough! We chose The Spirit because we have $800 in credits for Carnival from our Carnival Visa, plus a 2-category upgrade. Also, we thought the Carnival ship might have a younger average age. My husband and I are in our 40's, but we have a teen.
We loved Alaska! Can't wait to go back.
