Awesome Alaskan Carnival Cruise on Spiri

Sail Date: July 20, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We were impressed with how helpful everyone was. We loved the animals that were made for us each night. The best thing about the cruise were the variety of things going on everyday while we were on the ship. There was constantly something going on that you could get involved with. Sleep was not a high priority because there was so much to do on the ship. The shore excursions were great and priced appropriately. When you are in the port of Skagway, a must do thing is the Yukon Highway on the bus and ride the train back along the White River. It was breathtaking and well worth the time and money. Enjoyed every moment of our cruise and will do it again real soon!

Pros: The food and service were awesome!

Cons: We wished we could have stayed longer in Victoria and came in there during the day instead of the evening.

Recommends Carnival Spirit? Yes!

Ship Quality
We sailed on Spirit and it was 10 years old, but it looked brand new to us. They have done a magnificent job of maintaining it.
Food and Dining
We had some kind of seafood every night offered on the menu. Also, the dining room served great food at lunch and breakfast, too. THere was also all night pizza and ice cream. The ice cream was delicious. THe buffet was great, too.
Cabin / Stateroom
We were in the middle of the ship on the 6th floor and loved every minute of it. We had an interior room that was great because there was so much daylight in Alaska.
Service and Staff
They went above and beyond to help you. We wish we could have brought the staff home with us!
Fabulous entertainment! There were several nights that they had a PG rated and R rated comedy club available on the ship. Very good entertainment. The shows were fabulous that they had.
Ketchikan, Alaska
We loved the layout of the town because it was all right there at the port. We saw the Sancutary and Totem Poles. It was a nice tour with a chance to see bears, eagles and reindeer. Didn't see bears, but did see claw marks. A bunch of eagles were flying over head. The reindeer were awesome to see. They had a spotted owl and bald eagle in captivity because they were injured.
Skagway, Alaska
The bus and train ride to the summit and back were fabulous. Very small town so plan to do excursions when you visit this port. IT reminded us of the show NOrthern Exposure. The shopping area was only 7 blocks long.
Don't Miss: The Ultimate Yukon Highway on bus and then ride the train back BEAUTIFUL scenery and allow you to get pictures at a leisurely rate.
Victoria, British Columbia
Beautiful city! WIshed we could have been there for more than 4 hours. Waste of time tour was the double decker bus. The bus had a lousy speaker system and the bus driver would not slow down for us to take pictures.
Don't Miss: Butchart gardens
Juneau, Alaska
Seeing the gardens and Mendenhyll glacier were a must. The gardens were not what I expected. They were BEAUTIFUL and breathtaking views!!!
Don't Miss: Mendenhyll glacier and gardens
