Carnival Cruise Lines provides good price point for the trip to Alaska. In this case the outside pools and sunshine were secondary to the schedule and the port. Carnival has been steady in its delivery for our family. The food is ... Read more

We had a reunion scheduled in Seattle, so we decided to follow that up by taking our two young grandsons on a cruise to Alaska. We chose the Carnival cruise because it was nearest to the reunion. Although I had cruised one time before on ... Read more
