What a Disappointment!

Sail Date: November 12, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

Couldn't wait for cruise to end. Everything sub-standard at best.

Pros: Water, ice and hot chocolate available

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

Recommends Carnival Spirit? No.

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.
Ship Quality
Didn't like walking through casino or lounge smelling smoke to get to another part of the ship.
Food and Dining
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.
Cabin / Stateroom
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.
Service and Staff
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.
Acapulco, Mexico
Only went into cruise terminal. Had been at this port before and wasn't impressed that time either.
Manzanillo, Mexico
Waste of time.
Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa, Mexico
Quaint shopping, fishing, beach town.
