Cruise Tracy Arm Fjord

Nestled between 3,000-foot high granite walls, the narrow, twisting slice of ocean called Tracy Arm Fjord weaves through the Tongass National Forest for roughly 35 miles. The shoreline is spotted with waterfalls created by melting snowcaps and trees sprouting at odd angles from rocky outcroppings.

 

Port of Call #1: Skagway

As your ship approaches Skagway, you'll see the town resting peacefully at the base of a river valley bordered by the Coast Mountains. The mountains, ranging from 5,000 to 7,000 feet in height, seem to rise straight up from the saltwater fjord. Once on land, the streets of Skagway draw you back over 100 years, when this idyllic native fishing village was overrun by hordes of prospectors. Today, wooden sidewalks, old-fashioned saloons, quaint gift shops, and horse-drawn carriages serve as reminders of the Alaskan Gold Rush days.

 

Port of Call #2: Juneau

Juneau is considered by many to be the most beautiful capital city in the nation. Checking in at a little over 3,100 square-miles, Juneau qualifies as the biggest American city - geographically, that is. The terrain is hilly and winding, and narrow streets present a small-town quaintness existing side-by-side with cosmopolitan sophistication. You'll find great shopping, fine restaurants, and superb museums.

 

Port of Call #3: Ketchikan

A popular destination along Alaska's famed Inside Passage, Ketchikan is teeming with Native American culture. Home of the largest concentration of Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian people in the state, this extraordinarily beautiful city on Revillagigedo Island boasts the world's largest collection of totem poles, and an equally impressive selection of museums and cultural centers featuring Native dance, carvings and artifacts. Ketchikan's calm waters and surprisingly gentle climate make it a favorite of sport fishermen.

 

Port of Call #4: Victoria, British Columbia

Located on the southern tip on the island of Vancouver in British Columbia, the city of Victoria is probably best known for its mild climate and active outdoor lifestyle. Among the many attractions are world-famous gardens, its 150 years of British history, gourmet dining, and fantastic shopping.

 

On Board Gratuities: Carnival automatically charges $13.99 per person/per day for dining and stateroom services to your onboard account.

Carnival Freedom has a message for you, and it's "feel free to have fun!" Explore the ship and you'll find food options galore, starting with two dining rooms, but definitely extending outdoors. There's mouth-watering Guy Fieri burgers at Guy's Burger Joint, plus the greatest tacos and burritos this side of the pier at BlueIguana Cantina. For delicious, but quick and easy, selections from the sea, get your chopsticks around all the good stuff at Bonsai Sushi Express.

 

For every great food spot, there's a great place to enjoy drinks, too, from the toe-tapping Scott's Piano Bar to the always-hoppin' 70s Nightclub. For the thirsty, libation hotspots include Alchemy Bar and the 50-yard-line of fun itself, SkyBox Sports Bar. Everybody's favorite outdoor seaside bar is here... whether yours is the RedFrog Rum Bar or Blue Iguana Tequila Bar. (Or hey, make it both!) The rum bar's older brother, RedFrog Pub, features drinks, live music and traditional pub games. Topping off adult-time is Serenity the adult-only retreat where total relaxation is not only encouraged, but pretty much required.

 

If you're a kid, Carnival Freedom means you're in for a treat. Not only will you find new friends at one of three youth spaces - like Camp Ocean - but you can splash around with them in one of our many pools, speed down a waterslide at Carnival WaterWorks, or once you dry off, challenge them to a round of mini-golf. Oh, and adults - don't get jealous; your inner kid gets to do all this stuff, too!

 

Up on stage is Playlist Productions, featuring songs you know... and dance moves you'll soon be using. And for a chance to get up on stage yourself, there's Hasbro: The Game Show, where kids of all ages - even you, grandma - compete in larger-than-life Hasbro games come to life!

 

And for the cherry on top... it's actually called Cherry On Top. It's the spot for something special, whether that something's a little something sweet - or simply a little something to sweeten a special occasion.
