Does anyone know if there are any plans in the near future to replace the Spirit with one of the newer ships in the fleet for the Alaskan run.
I would love to do this cruise again on a Carnival ship but realy would prefer one of the bigger newer ships. The Spirit seems to have done this route for years. Surely others feel the same
The Spirit is still doing Alaska for 2010. I don't know after that.

I agree - and have my 2nd alaska trip scheduled in May. I am under the understanding that smaller ships are better in alaska cruises because they can navigate around ice, and inside passages better. I'll give up the larger ships for this comfort of getting the best for the trip! Its been 4 years in between my alaska trips, so I'm fine with the spirit.
