Waiters did not follow fine dining protocol.The food was never served warm.There was not enough variation in the menu.

There was only one extravangaza song and dance show, the rest of the shows were very average. Comedians mostly funny, again, not what I have come to expect from a cruise.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
Not very many varied and exciting activities for the tweens to do.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
The best service we had all week was in the casino area. We knew we could get a drink there, and the staff seemed to know us the best of anywhere on the ship.

We went to a sea turtle rescue program and sent baby turtles to the ocean! Great! Also of course, see the cliff divers...amazing!
Don't Miss: Cliff divers!

Loved this port. Quaint town, very friendly people.

Pros: Our cabin was spacious, the ship was lovely, we really enjoyed our shore excursions.

Cons: Service!! Dining room service not what I expect from a cruise ship. Also, food quality not great.

Recommends Carnival Spirit? No.
