Itineraries

During the summer months, starting in mid-May and ending in September, "Carnival Spirit" sails the waters off Alaska, stopping in Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway, Sitka, cruising the Lynn Canal, Prince William Sound, and visiting several glaciers. It alternates between a one week northbound and southbound voyage calling Vancouver and Whittier, Alaska home. During the first and last weeks of the summer, she travels a modified Glacier Bay voyage which starts and ends in Vancouver.

During late September and October, "Carnival Spirit" sails the Hawaiian Islands. These 12-day cruises visit such ports as Maui, Kona, Hilo, and Kauai. Hawaii is often the stopping point between the summer Alaskan cruises and the winter Mexican Riviera cruises.

Finally, during the winter months, "Carnival Spirit" travels down the Mexican Riviera visiting Acapulco, Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa, and Manzanillo. She begins and ends her cruises in San Diego, California.
