bad start-good middle-bad ending

Sail Date: April 01, 2010

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

The San Diego to Ensenada transport and waiting was so poorly organized it makes Carnival look decidedly second class. If you wish to debark early I recommend throwing your luggage over the side and then jumping. It's the only way you might get help from the Staff. The dining room staff and entertainment staff worked very hard to make up for the bad start and are to be commended. However the start and ending of the cruise makes it impossible for me to recommend Carnival.

Pros: Dining room service and food were excellent

Cons: Embarkation and debarkation

Recommends Carnival Spirit? No.

Service and Staff
Guest services and Excursion desk need improvement
This would have been excellent but your Hawaiian Duo and the comedian on April 21 stunk
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Minor and Jose were perfect servers and Natalijia A. made visiting the dining room a pleasure
Cabin / Stateroom
