Sail Date: Jun 2008
Cabin: Ocean View

This was my 5th Carnival cruise and 8th cruise overall. I recently went on a 3-day to the Bahamas and had a great time and had the itch to book another one. Alaska seemed like a good choice since it is hot this time of year in the caribbean and Alaska was more unique.

We chose Carnival based on past experience as well as the itinerary. We wanted to end near Whittier (close to Anchorage) rather than one of the smaller towns that some ships dock at.

The first thing we noticed is that the atrium on this ship is really nice, Titanic-like feeling. Most of the ship is also very nice and clean. We were on the 1st floor and it was nice having the dining room, casino, and other main attraction on the 2nd and 3rd floor - no need to wait for the elevators.

Nice counter space in the bathroom, but the shower is tiny and the soapdish doesn't have holes. Typical cruise size, but not too bad.
