Carnival Spirit - Carnival Cruise Spirit Destinations

The Carnival Cruise Spirit frequents such popular vacation destinations as Alaska, Hawaii and the Mexican Riviera. Each destination, as you might imagine, offers a completely unique experience when compared to the others. All, however, will give you the adventure, fun, and relaxation you're seeking.

Carnival Spirit - Alaska
While in Alaska for seven days, the Carnival Cruise Spirit travels past the beautiful glaciers in the Inside Passage while also stopping in popular cities Juneau and Ketchikan, land of the totem poles. There are three Alaska itineraries from which you can choose. The first the Glacier Bay itinerary, which lasts 7 days and sails roundtrip from Vancouver, B.C. Glacier Bay is spread across 3.2 million acres in Southeast Alaska; it's a national park home to 15 active glaciers, numerous seabirds, otters, and humpback whales.

Carnival Spirit - Mexico
The Carnival Cruise Spirit also visits such cities as Ixtapa and Acapulco during its seven- or eight-day excursions to the Mexican Riviera. Sailing roundtrip from San Diego, CA-one of America's most beautiful cities-Carnival Spirit visits the Cabo San Lucas, where you can find a party just as easily as you can a quiet restaurant or spot on the beach; Mazatlan, a place where you don't have to look for ghosts to find evidence of a Mayan past; and La Paz, which La Paz means "peace" in Spanish, and has wonderful beach spots and an easygoing, slow-paced atmosphere.

Mon Fun Day At Sea -- --
Tue Cabo San Lucas, Mexico 9:00am 5:00pm

Fri Fun Day At Sea -- --
Sat Fun Day At Sea -- --
Sun San Diego, CA 8:00am --

The 8-Day cruise visits entire different ports along the Mexican Riviera. Acapulco, while offering many man-made and natural attractions, is probably best know for the intrepid cliff divers that make perfectly timed jumps into the rolling surf beneath them. Zihuatenejo and Ixtapa, Mexico, though located adjacent to one another, are miles apart in terms of atmospheres. Ixtapa is a lively and modern city comprised of luxury resorts and residential areas residing on beautiful beaches along the Pacific coast. Zihuatanejo, an Indian word meaning "river of the yellow water," is a small bay and resort only discovered by tourists in 1940. Finally, Manzanillo, Mexico, has tons of dive sites and opportunities for sportfishing; soft-sand beaches and copses of palm trees give Manzanillo an idyllic setting.

(Note: the following itinerary is simply an example of the 8-Day Mexican Riviera cruise on Carnival Spirit; call a Cruise Specialist with Cruise Network or visit the "Cruise Search" section of www.cruisenetwork.com to verify the exact route of your cruise.)
