The Spirit Moves to Australia!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Spirit | Sail Date: Sep 30, 2012

This was our third time on the Spirit. We love the crew, Stu the Cruise Director and the wonderful captain. The shows were good and new Australian touches were being added. There was construction in the middle of the night that we had to complain about but overall we loved it. Jessie and Show Band were the highlight.

The ship has everything that will give their guest the best time possible. We are already planning our next cruise.

Mediocre at best

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Spirit | Sail Date: Sep 04, 2012

The ship was in good standing on cleanliness and what it had to offer. The crew was rude and non helpful especially the Customer Service desk. This was the next to last cruise that the Spirit will do in Alaska before heading to its new home in Australia and it showed. I know they have to deal with many people at once but you never let go your customer service priorities and be lifeless and non helpful in your dealings with the passengers. They also need to make sure their crew have a good handle on issues that arise and not give out inaccurate information.

Would Recommend This Cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Spirit | Sail Date: Sep 04, 2012

This was mine and my wife's first cruise ever. Wasn't sure what to expect, but we know when we have good service and bad food. Every employee on the ship was very helpful and willing to help. We really liked our stateroom steward, Angel, and our waitress Paramita. Some of the best services we've received. The breakfast was terrible. it looked and tasted like it was cooked and stored from the previous cruise and then microwaved to heat it up. Dinners on the other hand were excellent. Never had a problem with the food. The buffet is hit or miss for lunch, but if the dining room is open for lunch I would recommend going there instead. The activities were kind of boring. Definitely geared toward the older crowd. Lots of bingo and trivia multiple times throughout the day. It would've been better to have more music or shows or activities. Overall, we had a great time and would cruise to Alaska again, but we would for sure try a different ship or cruise line.

Beautiful cruise

It would be so much better to have casinos on an end of the ship so it is optional to go, not forced to go through to dinner.

Great Time!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Carnival Spirit | Sail Date: Aug 28, 2012

The Carnival Spirit was a great ship. The cleanliness was a welcome surprise. Our room was wonderful, the only way to travel to Alasaka is with a balcony room!! We were able to see so much of the beauty our our own window and not have to fight the crowd on the upper decks.

From MeetOnCruise iPhone App: Some of the best bars on the ship seem to be the ones that have nobody at them when they are open.
