Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship and crew were great. The food very good. Their orginization and handling of guests was very well organized. Staff very friendly.

Pros: The Scenery

Cons: Not enough time ashore because of the distance traveled.

Recommends Carnival Spirit? Yes!

Ship Quality
Ship was well maintained but the decor was pretty much overdone. Looked like they shopped at Tuesday Morning and used everything. But some people like that.
Food and Dining
Really good food for mass production. The only negative was no hot bread fresh out of the oven\, but that would be a challenge when feeding 2\,500 at a seating.
Cabin / Stateroom
Clean\, comfortable and good sized. But beware\, there is no heat. Lots of A/C but folks\, this trip was to Alaska\, that's glacier\, and ice berg country. Heat comes from your body heat and heat generated by ship's activity. So think about that. Pack accordingly\, it's not a destination for shorts and flip-flops.
Service and Staff
Really good staff. This was a fun ship!
Pretty decent. Something for everyone. Even folks (mostly kids and younger adults) in the covered pool and hot tubs all the time. Had a great band that could play any venue! My wife had her fill of dancing for sure. Shag the night away. Not too late tho because the shore excursions would hit the pier early as many stops only lasted to mid afternoon because the distance involved.
