Carnival Cruise Line says it's canceling Alaska sailings

    Miami (AP) - Carnival Cruise Line says the company is canceling its sailings to Alaska this summer.

    Spokesperson Vance Gulliksen says the announcement refers only to Carnival Cruise Line and not the other cruise brands under the umbrella of Carnival Corp.

    Princess Cruises and Holland America Line last month announced dramatically reduced sailing plans for Alaska.

    The companies did not immediately respond to requests for comment Monday.

    Tourism is a major industry in Alaska, with cruise ships bringing large numbers of visitors to the state during the typically busy summer months.
