5 Night Baja Mexico (San Diego Roundtrip) Sail Date: February 26, 2012 Ship: Carnival Spirit Cabin Type: Balcony Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 6 years ago
Overalll a great medium sized ship. Easy to navigate. Loved the new addition of the serenity area in the aft. New waterslide was fun, but useless in cold weather as the trip up the stairs and waiting in the cold wind made it not so fun.
Ship shows it's age in many areas, but was alway clean.
Food and Dining
3 out of 5
Love your time dining. No rushing or waiting to eat. Was always seated within five minutes. Service was generally good. Food quality and quanity has gone done, but you could always order something else if you didn't like what was served. Tried to steer clear of the buffets as they were crowded.

Same shows I have seen on carnival for years. Same activities, ie. hairy chest contest, master mixologist, newlywed type show. At least change up the questions for trivia, etc.... If you have never been on carnival before, it will all be new and good, however, after several cruises a little variety would be nice.
Service and Staff
5 out of 5
Always was treated with a smile and helpful attitude. Great room steward, wait staff, etc...

Decor is less gaudy than other Carnival ships. Still would prefer something more elegant. Public areas were kept clean but showed wear.
Cabin / Stateroom
3 out of 5
Had a balcony stateroom. Need to work on making the air system less noisy. Also tigheten the seal on the balcony door so you don't get wind noise. Put in new flat screens, but didn't change the stand and I had to sit up in bed to make the remote work.
Pros: Good Value for money paid.
Cons: Carnival has not changed it shows, trivia questions, etc...... for a looooooong time,
