Carnival Spirit

9 Night Mexican Riviera (San Diego Roundtrip)

Sail Date: February 17, 2012

Ship: Carnival Spirit

Cabin Type: Balcony

Traveled As: Couple

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Review Summary

Food quality was very good, although many of the more expensive selections that were available a few years ago have been replaced with 'comfort food' choices. Smoking rules for the casino were the best I have ever seen - smoking only allowed at a few tables and selected slot machines, but the rules were not enforced. The volume on the PA system was similar to what you might encounter at a rock concert. A friend brought a sound level meter, and registered 90 decibles - officially the pain threshold and a violation of OSHA standards. The Steak House is a five star restaurant, with outstanding service and some of the best food I have ever had - from appetizer to desert.

Very good quality, pretty good selection, adequate service (as good as you can expect now that gratuity is automatic).
