Lots of Fun

Sail Date: March 15, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

The excursion desk was very helpful. They took time in helping me decide which outing would be best for what I wanted to do. The information desk did not receive my complaint very well about my bathing suit being totally ruined due to over chlorinating the Jacuzzi and I was displeased with the compensation they offered. It was also unfortunate that they did not sell bathing suits in their shops on board. I would suggest you bring an extra suit in case something happens. One of the pools was also shut down several times during the cruise and the women's room was out of order for a good period of time. My room steward was awesome and the waiters at dinner were great also. All in all I had a great time. I had an upset stomach and went to the infirmary and was banned from the dining room for 24 hours. It was formal night and I had to miss it. Because they don't know what the cause is, they treat all stomach problems the same so there is not an outbreak on board. I wish they could have explained that before I filled out the paperwork. I absolutely knew it was the food I ate in Acapulco. I can understand they have rules, though. The ship was not overcrowded, which surprised me. They had good prices in the shops on board. I liked the fact they videoed some excursions and you could watch it on your TV in your room. The ship was very nice.

Pros: Activities for children and adults

Cons: Buffet wasn't the greatest

Recommends Carnival Spirit? No.

Manzanillo, Mexico
Did not like this port. I wouln't even get off the ship.
Acapulco, Mexico
Nature walk and snorkle was very fun. Be careful about eating the food. I had stomach problems. I believe if you put lime juice on everything, it kills the bacteria that makes you sick. My father does it and never has any problems. The food was great tasting.
Don't Miss: I liked the snorkling and the cliff diving
Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa, Mexico
This was an awesome port of call.
Don't Miss: Dolphins were just amazing. Must do! The shopping was also the best in this port. I would try to do both.
