The Carnival Spirit is a pretty ugly ship inside. Feels like a cross between a run down Applebee's and a under-funded theme park. The quality of the crew, service and food were the only saving graces.

Pros: Crew

Cons: Entertainment\, entertainment options\, and ship decor.

Recommends Carnival Spirit? No.

Simply terrible\, not just for a cruise either. The music performances were awful. It was like watching college understudies performing. The Michael Jackson tribute was terrible. The cruise director was an embarrassment to the show and made me feel insulted as an audience member.
Service and Staff
Great quality crew. Very hospitable and friendly.
Cabin / Stateroom
Clean\, well maintained and had the expected amenities. The decor was dated and had ugly fluorescent lighting\, but otherwise was what I expected.
Food and Dining
As far as cruise food goes\, it was as expected and didn't impress.
Ship Quality
Decor is cheap\, ugly and dated. Too many themes going on: Egyptian\, French\, Roman\, modern\, and fantasy - just confused\, ugly and made the experience on board feel cheap.
