Review SummaryI have been on a number of Cruises...on Norwegian a couple of times, Royal Carribean once, and this is about the 6th time on Carnival. Didn't think the service or the food was quite as good as on previous Carnival ships (mostly carribean) that we have been on. Talked with several other previous cruisers and they said the samething. Think if it had been our first cruise we would have been totally satisfied but the fact that we had been on others where the service was top notch we were slightly dissappointed. We usually take our two daughters and their husbands, and now two granddaughters with us, and sometimes extended family and friends. There were 13 of us on this particular cruise. Thought the port listings were a little misleading in that it said we ended up in Anchorage, with (whittier) in parenthisis, only the small print said something about Whittier being 90 minutes from Anchorage, so they kind of hold you hostage for $75. each for transfers) ,So we rented cars instead.
Ports Of Call
Pros: Whale watching in Sitka
Cons: Didn' t think the service was as good as the caribean cruises
Recommends Carnival Spirit? Yes!
