Carnival Spirit
7 Night Alaska (Seattle Roundtrip)
Sail Date: July 26, 2011
Ship: Carnival Spirit
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago
Very good condition and very clean. Since this was my first cruise, my expectations were exceeded in many areas. I was unhappy with the quality of the housekeeping although it was generally acceptable. I was disappointed at the overcharging of excursions at all the ports.The food was generally good but the design of the food area could have been better to allow for less confusion and the bumping into staff ( which were excellent in promptly cleaning up). Overall, would recommend the ship and the line but would pass on the excursions.

Food and Dining

The pizza station should have been handled differently.....Wait was too long.

Shows were excellent but communication of the times, subject etc needed to be advertized much better. Bingo was poor (overpriced).

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Although all spoke English ( my language), any discussions were difficult to get them to understand what you wanted done.

Ship Quality

Needs newer TV's and instructions for the newbees to watch it for details needed.

Lack of time at the port to do anything worthwhile and still get to see the town.

Good shopping......good excursions but very overpriced
Don't Miss: Nothing unless you can afford the glacier trip.

Walk the city and understand the history.
5 out of 5
Great and beautiful city but not enough time to do anything but walk around a small area of the city. Trip to the gardens, which I wanted to see was overpriced so I passed it up.

Pros: Scenery

Cons: Over priced excusions at the ports

Recommends Carnival Spirit? Yes!
