Very nice cruise

Sail Date: May 11, 2010

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Overall the cruise was good but a few things could use improvement. Compared to previous cruises, the food was not fantastic. The last cruise I took, I was photographing the food but not this time. The food tasted good and there were many choices. The portions were a bit small but you can eat as much as you like. The waiter and staff were fantastic and a lot of fun.

Our stateroom was kept extremely clean and having a balconey was a bonus that I highly recommend.

The shore excursions in Skagway were a disappointment- not very organized but this is not the fault of the cruise line. They need larger signs for the buses.

Enjoyed the whalewatching excursion very much. The gardens in BC were pretty but it was too late in the evening to really enjoy them and more time would be nice.

Pros: The staff was wonderful

Cons: Disembarkment- disorganised

Recommends Carnival Spirit? Yes!

I think it is great that there are no inside cabins so that everyone has a view.
Service and Staff

Really good shows

Ketchikan, Alaska
The rainforrest tour was interesting but we did not see any bears. Our guide was very good but we could have used more time on the tour.
Don't Miss: Shoppin close to the dock
Victoria, British Columbia
Too late in the night to go to the gardens. Our guide was very good and full of interesting facts but I would have preferred to see the gardens during the day. Not enough time in this port
Juneau, Alaska
Our whale watching experience was fantastic. We saw many whales, dolphins, and seals. Even bad weather didn't diminish this experience.
Don't Miss: whale watching
Skagway, Alaska
The train ride was very interesting but our guide was not very good. She was a bit disorganized and wasn't sure we were suppose to go. Panning for gold was fun
Don't Miss: Train ride to Yukon
