Curious about Carnival Spirit - Glacier Bay


K.T.B.

Recommended Posts

Taking the year off from cruising to save up some money in hopes of taking this cruise next year for our 10 year anniversary. (Plus we're doing other vacation spots this year, so something had to give....) Has anyone here cruised Spirit? Especially Glacier Bay. Anything I need to know concerning flying into Vancouver? Where to stay the night before, sights to see while there, etc.

 

Reading the reviews is helpful, but it's far more helpful to get first hand experiences. I'd definitely appreciate any and all help. :)

 

Thanks!

Have you been over to the Alaska port of call board? Its very active and people know Alaska and Vancouver inside out and have lots of great money saving tips.

I do know many people fly into Seattle and take Amtrak over to Vancouver.

 

Here is a great resource for Vancouver Cruise Ship Information

That should get you off to a good start.

Another alternative is flying into Seattle and using quickcoach to Vancouver.

SWA runs a lot of $99 one way fares to SEA-TAC.

http://www.quickcoach.com/schedule.htm $74 r/t

 

 

If the pricing is right for May 06, I might cancel the first leg of my Liberty cruise and head to Alaska instead. Which dates are you considering?

Did the southbound Spirit last year from Whittier, ending in Vancouver. LOVED THE SPIRIT!! LOVED ALASKA!! We picked the southbound so that we could spend 5 days precruise touring some of the inland areas. Alaska is so awesome - I can' wait to go again. Laurie
