Carnival Spirit

9 Night Mexican Riviera (San Diego Roundtrip)

Sail date: March 02, 2012

Ship: Carnival Spirit

Cabin type: Oceanview

Traveled as: Couple

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Review summary

The ship itself was recently taken out of dry dock and therefore was relatively clean and new. There were still some areas of wear and tear and the casino had very few newer machine options. There were more food options on this ship than I have experienced on other ships and the layout was very convenient.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food on this ship was okay but nothing to rave about. Some nights things would come out fresh and warm other times they looked and tasted thrown together. The buffets were constantly closed and the grills food was very dry.


3 out of 5
The activities were the usual comedy shows, bingo, trivia, karaoke.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
While on the ship the staff were friendly and kind. However on the last day getting off we forgot a piece of luggage and realized it just as we were walking through security. Carnival took more than an hour to go up to our room and group the bag, Additionally the staff was very rude about it. It appears once your cruise is over so is their service.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
This is the first carnival cruise ship I have been on where the Serenity Deck did not feel like an after thought which was a major plus in my opinion. The casino was well spread out with little to no newer machine options. The condition was in fairly good conditions but did show some age.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The stateroom was like all the other ships I have been on.

Pros: Cabo

Cons: Not much to see

Recommends Carnival Spirit? Yes!
