Earlier today I shared my opinion that even with the new legislation expected to take effect, Alaska cruises are going to be a long shot. Moments later, an announcement from Carnival Corp announcing Alaska 2021 on Holland America and Princess proved me wrong. Not surprisingly, they must know something I don’t about what the CDC has in mind for US based cruises this Summer and Fall.
