Glacier Bay in Sept. 07

Sail Date: September 01, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

Overall it was a wonderful experience. Had cruised a couple of times years ago so there have been some changes. Our stateroom with balcony was outstanding. It was clean, well maintained and the housekeeping crew did a great job. The ports of call were very good, except it rained and was cold at each one. Nothing that Carnival can fix, its Alaska in September. The excursions we took were very informative and a good experience. The staff on the Spirit were very helpful, the cruise director was very good, the entertainment was good, but occasionally I was unable to find something to do. Not a lot of kids on board, which I enjoyed. The La Playa Grill on the Lido deck always seemed crowded. Most times we had to get our food and go out to the covered pool area to eat. The ship staff was very pleasant and helpful when we had questions. I would recommend the Carnival Spirit to other cruisers.

Pros: Our balcony stateroom and the housekeeping staff

Cons: Crowds in the eating areas

Recommends Carnival Spirit? Yes!

Food and Dining
Grill area was usually crowded. Table service was slow in the main dining room. The service staff appeared short handed at times.

Cabin / Stateroom
We had a balcony room amidships on the port side. Location was outstanding. Very clean and well maintained.
