Overall a good cruise

Sail Date: March 28, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was nice, it seemed though that there were not enough staff to accomodate the size of the ship.

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.

Food and Dining
Waiters did not follow fine dining protocol.The food was never served warm.There was not enough variation in the menu.
Service and Staff
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.
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.
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
There were nice extras in the cabin, toothpaste, cold remedies etc...The room was plenty big for 3 of us to fit in comforatably.
Children's Programs
Not very many varied and exciting activities for the tweens to do.
Manzanillo, Mexico
We spent the day at an all inclusive resort. Very nice way to spend a day.
Acapulco, Mexico
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!
Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa, Mexico
Loved this port. Quaint town, very friendly people.
