Overview

As a guest aboard Carnival Spirit, you’ll see the Great Land in the grandest possible way. As you sail along the Inside Passage (often in the company of frolicking sea lions and humpback whales), you’ll marvel at Alaska’s mountains, waterfalls, and glaciers. During your adventure, you’ll feast on just-caught salmon, saunter through Gold Rush towns and be constantly astounded by breathtaking beauty. This is more than a seven-day vacation. It’s a lifetime of memories. So, be prepared for excitement far beyond your expectations. We recommend the Balcony if you truly want to sit and marvel at all the beauty along the way. Informative genealogy classes taught by the experts will be offered on the days out to sea. Learn the powerful features of Legacy 6.0 that will really help you advance your genealogical research and have a great time doing it. We look forward to sailing with you all again next year.

Juneau


Juneau
Alaska's colorful capital city was once a magnet for gold seekers in the 1890s. Don't miss the the famous Red Dog Saloon.

 
Ketchikan


Ketchikan
In Ketchikan, a town built on stilts, the renowned totem poles are proud reminders of the area's strong native presence. Wander down Creek Street, the town's famous, and now-innocent, "red light" district.


Glacier Bay


Glacier Bay

Make sure you have your camera ready when you visit Glacier Bay. Spread across 3.2 million acres in Southeast Alaska, this protected national park is home to 15 active glaciers, numerous seabirds, otters and humpback whales.

 
Prince Williams Sound


The Inside Passage

As you sail cruise the Inside Passage view the wonders of playful sea lions, humpback whales and bald eagles while you marvel at Alaska’s majestic mountains, waterfalls, and glaciers. Have your cameras and binoculars ready!


Skagway


Skagway
This unique port is a town of false-front buildings and wood plank sidewalks. Catch the action at the playfully "naughty" Red Onion Saloon and in the "Days of '98 Saloon" Theatre. Visit a recreated Gold Rush Trail Camp. For a journey into Alaska's past, travel aboard the White Pass and Yukon Railroad.

 


Vancouver
If you extend your stay in Vancouver, you'll definitely want to visit Gastown. Dine at the superb restaurants and browse through the quaint curio shops. Save time to stroll through the exquisite gardens of Stanley Park.

Our Legacy Cruise Coordinator

Christy of Travelworks International is handling all of the details.

So, who is Christy?  Well, Ken McGinnis says; "Christy is my sister and you will just love her!  Going on a cruise will be fun but if you are going on a cruise with Christy then get ready for the best vacation of your life.  I'm not exaggerating here.  Christy just has a way of making things so much fun". 

Christy has put together several cruises of large groups and always does such a great job.  She organized our 2004 and Legacy cruises and I think everyone just loved her and all she did to make the cruse a huge success.

Her contact information is Christy of Travelworks International at 1-888-505-6997 or send her an e-mail at twivacations@comcast.net

Christy says;  "My family has personally gone on the Victory and it was a fantastic ship.  A wonderful experience.  Top notch and first class all the way. You won't be disappointed.".  So, if you have questions don't hesitate to ask her as she will have the answers for you.  Just be warned that if you talk to her you will probably have troubles sleeping that night because of the excitement.

Order Form

Please make your reservation now in order to be one of the lucky ones to come with us in September of 2006. We have negotiated these special prices for a limited number of cabins and the rates are guaranteed so don't delay reserving your space. This price is guaranteed only until we run out of the reserved cabins and space is quickly filling up. Don't miss out on this great opportunity.

I don't know if you have gone on a cruise before but they can be lots of fun. All the food and fun one person can take in. Last year we completely sold out.  I felt very bad when a few people who had missed out on the reserved cabins had to spend almost double the price to still be able to come with us.  Make your reservation now so you don't miss out. You may elect to pay the entire amount now or hold your cabin and lock in the price by paying a deposit:

  • First Deposit due now of US $200.00 per person
