Alaska Cruise: Best in the West

Sail Date: August 19, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

The overall impression of the ship was that she was nice-looking, well arranged and had a staff and crew of above-average knowledge and pleasantness.

Pros: I liked the number of landings and the carefully arranged off-ship activities to enjoy.

Cons: The overall rude and crowding-into-line attitudes and actions of the other passengers.

Recommends Carnival Spirit? Yes!
