Wonderful and relaxing cruise

Sail Date: December 10, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

This was a beautiful and well maintained ship with an exceptional crew. We had great service and very much enjoyed the dinners in the formal dining room and the evening shows and comedy acts.

However, I wish Carnival would go totally non-smoking. We had a lovely balcony to sit and watch the scenery, but our 'next door neighbor' was a chain smoker. Every time we went to sit on the balcony, we were sucking in his second-hand smoke. Also, the pool area and bars and casinos also allowed smoking.

Next time I cruise, it will only be on a smoke free vessel.

Pros: Great Ports and excursions

Cons: Smokers still allowed on Ship

Recommends Carnival Spirit? No.

The only reason I would not recommend this ship is because of the smoking issue. Other than that, everything was excellent.
