Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Had a hard time finding anythihg on dining menu I liked as side dishes or sauces were a little weird. Although meat portions were ample.


3 out of 5
Only 2 or 3 of the nighttime musical shows were any good. The last night's singer was terrible, we walked out. And what's the deal with X-rated comedians? Daytime activities seemed geared more towards children or young adults.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
Our head waiter at dinner was the only friendly person with any abilities to please. Most staff just walked on by except for the spa staff.

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
Didn't like walking through casino or lounge smelling smoke to get to another part of the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Paid for a balcony room which should have been listed as a partially obstructed view room. Had to ask to have mini-bar unlocked then to find it locked again a few days later. Bed was extremely hard. Small stateroom overall.

Ports Of Call

Acapulco, Mexico

1 out of 5
Only went into cruise terminal. Had been at this port before and wasn't impressed that time either.

Manzanillo, Mexico

1 out of 5
Waste of time.

Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa, Mexico

3 out of 5
Quaint shopping, fishing, beach town.

Pros: Water, ice and hot chocolate available

Cons: Food, service, not informative, staff not friendly

Recommends Carnival Spirit? No.
