Costly, but good cruise
Carnival Spirit Cruise Review to Alaska - Inside Passage
Sail Date: May 31, 2011
Ship: Carnival Spirit
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago
Review SummaryThe ship was good. The rooms (we had an extended balcony) were bigger than I thought (four of us, so, still cramped, but, we got by).
The food was hit and miss. I had a couple really good meals and then four of five largely mediocre meals.
The shows and entertainment were good. General shows, gambling, comedy were all solidly entertaining.
Activities for kids under 11 were good and inventive. For teens, not so much. My 14 year old wasn't interested in any of the activities so tended to just buddy up and walk around the ship.

Don't Miss: The carriage tour on on the waterfront side of the parliament building - ask for Marina...the happiest woman alive
Don't Miss: whale watching.
Don't Miss: The shopping was good (not that I really like shopping)
Pros: The activities and multitude of excursion choices
Cons: The cost - not sure that the cruise was worth the cost
