We sailed with Hurricane Maria coming up the coast. We were prepared for the worst, but had a decent cruise...about what we all expected from this Fun Ship. We will sail her again....We would all love to have one of the Spirit Class ships assigned to Charleston.

This was by far the best vacation I have ever had. The food and entertainment was awesome. The wait staff worked so hard, they were amazing. I've already booked my next Carnival cruise.

Our family of seven had a fabulous time from start to finish even though the private island trip was cancelled due to Hurricane Maria. Only drawback was the septic smells

Except for cancelled stop to Princess Cay the cruise was fabulous. Would definitely book Carnival in future. All night pizza was a plus. Beverage package well worth it. Staff was great. Ship smell not so much but we managed to ignore it.

We didn't have trouble with motion sickness surprisingly but we choose to stay at the bottom of the ship. Now that we know it isn't a issue we will try for a suite next time. Oh, when you get a king size bed; realized that means 2 twins pushed together so you have a line down the bed.

Experience all the activities and shows possible. Have a few days to rest up from your cruise when you return. Do NOT go dieting. Be prepared to gain a few pounds; however, you will lose it easily when you return home eating normal again.

Figure out where and what time your meals are served for some really good food. Plan your excursions so you don't feel rushed. Pick your room on above or below the action preferably floor six. Our one of the sites above the Lido deck
