The Spirit Moves to Australia!

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.

Amazing Scenery

The ship and decor seemed dated and worn. The food overall was just satisfactory, nothing spectacular. The entertainment was a little boring and their biig show night we had seen the same exact show on the cruise we took the year before on a differnt ship. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. The obstructed view balcony was wonderful! Our view was great, the only obsturction was if you wanted to look straight down. We sat on our balcony all day while cruising Glacier Bay day. We felt like we could just reach out and touch the glaciers and we could hear everything the naturalist said.

In addition to the pros above, we very much enjoyed the daily updates from the ship's naturalist.

Mediocre at best

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.

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.

Would Recommend This Cruise

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
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.

The ship, and it's crew were great. We sailed Carnival Spirits' last Alaskan cruise. No complaints about the ship. Clean, nice rooms, and lots to do.

This tip is for most ships, have read many posts/reviews saying that it is very hard finding a seat at the Lido deck during Breakfast/Lunch times once they have their food. My tip is look around for a seat FIRST and then you can take your time getting the food and go straight back to your table.

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.
