Carnival Spirit staff perhaps four well trained, friendly, and interested in your special holiday.
They are: Shaun Bussey, always smiling, happy and welcoming.
Hernando, Cabin Stewards, efficient, interested in your stateroom cleanliness, restocking, and happy to be of service without being invasive.
Imputu, waiting staff, happy willing and able to service your needs.
Offshore Excursions Manager, knowledgeable, happy and able to service any needs.

Pros: Cabin position on Carnival Spirit

Cons: Food - Ordinary, Staff - Untrained & mostly unfriendly, Wine Menus - out of date and out of stock

Cabin / Stateroom
representative provided cabin with great position, we did not have to move from our designated cabin from the Hawaii 12 day previous cruise, thanks so much because your the winner in this survey. The cabin steward Herdando exemplary in his tasks.
Service and Staff
Only four staff could be considered going above & beyond in their friendliness, willingness and ability to help our cruise enjoyment.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Meat seemed to be only food preparation well handled, i.e. beef, any other foods were overcooked or badly cooked. Wine menus out of date, and out of stock without apology or inconvenience to any person. Matre de and Bar Manager deserve either more training or to be let go from their positions.
Same entertainment provided as from previous cruise Hawaii to Vancouver, not worthy even of mention. Thanks but no thanks.
Skagway, Alaska
Train ride to the Yukon border fabulous scenery, snowing at the time we went, enjoyed immensely, old train kept in great condition with terrific commentary. Local pubs and staff friendly, in many ways better than ships crew.
Don't Miss: Train ride to Yukon border
Ketchikan, Alaska
Historic Creek Street worthy of walking through. Pretty township with friendly people.
Juneau, Alaska
Mount Robson Tramway worthy of viewing and close to port dock, so no problem to navigate. Mendenthall Glacier helicopter and walk on Glacier an absolute must for anyone visiting, albeit expensive yet memorable.
Don't Miss: Mendenthall Glacier
