My wife and I will be on the Carnival Spirit for the Alaskan cruise scheduled for August 7-14, 2002. This is our first cruise and we are both excited and nervous. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

I haven't sailed Alaska on Carnival, however I have sailed Alaska four times. Some advice I would have is always keep looking around. You never know when you will see some wildlife such as whales, porpoise, moose or bear. If you are bringing a regular camera and not digital bring more film than you think you will need. You will be taking many more pictures than you normally take. When you are in near the glaciers or out on the water have a filter on your camera lense to cut down on glare.

Most important relax and enjoy the beauty of Alaska. You are in for a great cruise.

The rain in Alaska is usually not buckets (though that's not impossible), more often drizzle or light rain. Take raincoats/slickers, and rain pants (or rainsuits instead of both of the above), plus an umbrella to use on shore. Expect to get wet, and then if you get nice days it will be all that much better! Enjoy!!!
My mother, who has traveled much of the world, still says Alaska is the most beautiful place she has ever been.
