Review Summary

With the tip policy everyone was great friendly and glad to see you until the tips were passed out or posted to your charge card when you reached port. After the tips were in the bank then it was like you are in their way, and they want you off the ship even though you are waiting for them to allow you off the ship. The cruise was the best until the last day. The last day hurt how I felt about the entire cruise.

Wonderful historical visit. Take a tour do some shopping but eat on the ship

Skagway, Alaska

5 out of 5
Nice stop but very controlled by the cruise industry. Most of the shops appeared to be owned by the ships

Pros: Great trip. Very nice to slow down and enjoy a vacation with out running around trying to see it all like a traditional vacation

Cons: tip policy. The cruise has a manditory 15% gratutity policy that is billed toward your credit card

Recommends Carnival Spirit? Yes!
