8 Night Mexican Riviera (San Diego Roundtrip) Sail Date: March 21, 2008 Ship: Carnival Spirit Cabin Type: Oceanview Traveled As: Family (older children) Reviewed: 9 years ago
The Carnival Spirit was a great ship with lots to do. We started in San Diego (Mar. 21) and went as far south as Acupulco. The "At sea" days were very windy so there was a limited amount of things you could do outdoors. The mini golf was definately off limits! The crew were all very friendly and helpful. It was so nice to be spoiled for a week. No cooking, cleaning or even making the bed!!!!!
Food and Dining
5 out of 5
The food was good as usual but I didn't really enjoy the captain coming over the pa system to say something every night. It seemed to be an interruption to the table conversation rather than helpful information.
Service and Staff
5 out of 5
Great service. We traveled with 3 kids and there were extra chocolates and a happy face cookie for each of them at bedtime. The dining room staff started to remember what we usually liked...ie extra ice cream with dessert or apple juice for the kids. It was nice to feel that the service was personalized.

The beds aren't very comfortable but the ship has tried to make it as good as possible with their new linens. There were nice white comforters and extra pillows in the room.
We went to the market and the beach at this port. Both were good. The beach we went to had parasailing and my daughter tried it. It was less expensive than many other places we have been to. The sail was about 15 minutes and $25.00
