I've been Northbound, Southbound and round trip on Carnival Spirit and always had lovely Inside Passage viewing. Maybe it depends on the captain. I had the same captain all three times too.

I love having a balcony.

There's a seperator, plastic, you can see milky outlines of people next to you, hear talking, etc., but unless you're wanting to hang out naked, I don't see a problem with...

Re: alaska cruise

You should narrow it down first to what sounds interesting to you, then post again if those were enjoyed. Most excursions are great. :)

In Juneau, if you can't afford the helicopter (which is...

Re: What is it with Bananas-the fruit?

A friend of mine who cruised with me the first time eats bananas daily. He never catches fish! They spent a week fishing before the cruise and got nothing. The river was so full of salmon that his...

Re: Which cruise ship to Alaska do you like best??

All of the ships have buffet options if you don't want formal.

Also, Cruise West and other smaller ships have wonderful itineraries and are all casual.

Re: Mendenhall Glacier _too expensive

You can also take the canoe trip, which gets you as close to the face of the glacier as safely possible, plus past the icebergs, and stops at the waterfall. It's fun and not strenuous.

Re: pumpkin soup delicious!

See the recipe above. On Carnival there's no cream cheese and their veggies are roasted--totally different flavor.

Re: Re: Food Selection on the Carnival Legend?

Oh, and don't forget the sea day teas (with snacks) and the midnight buffets.

Food, food everywhere.

Re: Food Selection on the Carnival Legend?

I wonder why someone would tell you that.

The Lido buffet is open for dinner, pizza and calzones and caesar salads are 24-hours, and yes you can take any of the food back to your room.

Here is...

Re: rain gear and another ??

The propeller was damaged by ice, the engine is fine and as far as I know only that one cruise was impacted, it's back on schedule now.

Re: Skipper's Club question

Vancouver is confirmed, but US customs was so slow it wasn't necessary. No one was waiting after customs.

Papa Bill, Skippers Club is for suite passengers, not past guests. You get the past...

Re: thinking out loud

Not all of them can keep a wonderful disposition. One of my room stewards was on her last nerve and looked ready to cry every day. I can't say I blame her.

Re: one-way?

I enjoyed southbound the best out of north, south and round trip. Just my opinion. :)

Re: anyone cruised the Spirit to Alaska - have question

Right now it's Michael Mullane, but I believe Shawn Bussey's coming back. Neither are that good in my opinion, but the CD's definitely do NOT make or break an Alaska cruise. ;)

Re: Helicopter/dog-sledding - how cold is it?

Layer. The temeratures can wildly fluctuate, and you never know how warm or cold it's going to be. Even on a glacier it can be sunny and warm--it was both times I went. In mid-July I certainly...

Re: pumpkin soup delicious!

Yup, just made the above with roasted butternut. Roasting temp is too low, bump to 400, but it's perfect otherwise! And even though scaling down, roast the garlic bulb whole in aluminum--not just...

I know this is a very old thread, but I love their pumpkin soup and wanted to make it.

Turns out in Europe, butternut squash is called butternut pumpkin. I'd be willing to wager that this pumpkin...

Re: glacier bay v. hubbard glacier

Which we prefer is a matter of preference obviously. :)

I've been to Glacier Bay, College Fjord and Hubbard. All are spectacular and unique. Hubbard was my first, and I think it's breathtaking. ...

Re: Walmart in Alaska

It was an abandoned K-mart--probably just needed some paint and to be stocked. But, I think it would be in the Juneau Empire if it was open, and it's not.

Re: travel documents

Consider purchasing a transfer from the pier to airport on the ship. Then you can bypass customs.

Re: Touring from Juneau

The flight is kind of expensive. Just from Seattle to Juneau is $400. Add in lodging, meals & entertainment... I think a cruise is a better bargain.

Re: Chartering a Boat

Although you don't really search for whales, they usually always know where they are. :)

Re: New Carnival Class Ship Details

All I can say is it better have at the LEAST a regular 14-day itinerary instead of 7. It would take you three days just to embark and disembark! Yikes.
