not what we expected

Sail Date: January 15, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

We were very dissaponted with the costs while aboard. Drinks costs were excessive $8 to $14. We did not enjoy paying for every little thing once on board. Nothing is free except food. Even bottled water was expensive.
We did not receive the rooms we wanted even though we booked early in May. They offered a room change for $250. Thanks so much. We have decided to never cruise Carnival again because of that and no one seemed to care when we told them that. A bad experience to say the least

Pros: The ports of call

Cons: The costs while aboard

Recommends Carnival Spirit? No.

Acapulco, Mexico
Big and busy. Not very clean. Taxi costs were priced out or sight.
Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa, Mexico
Clean and nice beaches
Manzanillo, Mexico
To spread out to do anything without hiring one of their expensive taxis
