A Cruise Planned by the Love of my life. by PauletteM1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Carnival Spirit / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

This cruise was really so nice. Compared to the other cruises I've had it was well organized and a relaxing experience as were all of my other Carnival cruises. The only thing that needed improvement was the meal service in the main dining room. Our meals were always delivered luke warm or cold, never hot. Our last meal arrived 45 minutes after we were seated. Our hostess was very polite and courteous. We felt badly for him because he was giving his all. Our stateroom attendant was super excellent. Our excursions were very much fun except the one in Canada.

Great way to see the Inside Passage by EricH1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Carnival Spirit / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Great way to see the Inside Passage & Alaska. One day in each port is plenty of time to explore the area, but we only had 1/2 a day in Juneau & Ketchican.

Average cruise by JosieU

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Spirit / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

We recently took an Alaskan cruise out of Seattle. The ship was nice and I really appreciate they let you take 1 bottle of wine per adult. The buffet was average and I did end up getting very sick the 3rd nite. I had only ate the ships food and no where else. That is why I know I got food poisoning off the buffet it was either the salad bar or eggs. I was also not impressed with their shopping representative who sells you this book of coupons for 30 dollars and you are suppose to get all this free stuff in all the ports you stopped. Well she should have warned you about two things if you planned excursions there is absolutely no time to shop in two ports and the one port that I tried to retrieve all my coupons. I had to go in Jewelery shops to get 2 dollar free gifts and tell the pushy merchants no, no, no I do not want to buy anything. Don't buy the coupon book not worth it. Overall the ship and the housekeepers were good and some staff at the buffet.

Carnival Spirit - The Best Cruise Ever by CynthiaL2

Sail date: /
Ship: Carnival Spirit / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Large enough to feel safe; small enough to get from one end to ther other in a few minutes; cabins were actually roomier than I expected; plenty of restrooms around the ship. Sufficient areas to be out on deck between activities.

What a Trip! by CindyR5

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Spirit / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

The ship was very clean and looked new and updated. The crew was very friendly and ready to help. Our cabin was very comfortable and having a balcony was the best this we did. When cruising to Alaska, I highly reccommend a balcony.

Average at best by Oxber

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Carnival Spirit / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

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.

Loved this cruise! by JoanneB6

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Carnival Spirit / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

It is a beautiful, well run ship. On our last cruise, it took forever to get off the ship for excursions and for our final debarkation. Each time we got off the Spirit, we were able to debark in a timely, efficient manner.

7 Day Alaska by SandyK4

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Carnival Spirit / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

The ship was very large but well kept. On one of the days that we were in port the carpeting was replaced in our room. That left a 'new carpet smell' for the remainder of the cruise. Another day, they were scheduled to clean our balcony so we had to remove our items, lock the door, and close the blinds. I think that Carnival's maintainance should not have been done when we were paying for the room.

very very bad cruise i ever had. by RekhabenP

Sail date: / Traveled as: Large Group
Ship: Carnival Spirit / Destination: Alaska

One of our best cruise experiences ever! by A Cruiser from Boston Destination: Caribbean - Western Sailing date: 2006-03-05 Pros:All-new features are amazing, it's like a brand new ship! Cons:Specialty restatrant reservations were hard to get We recently sailed on the Enchantment of the Seas for the second time, and all I can say is "Wow!". We knew the ship had been refurbished and stretched to make it larger, but we had no idea what to expect. New restaurants, a fantastic new pool area and a new nightclub made this second cruise feel like we were on a brand new ship. We really like Royal Caribbean's style, service, and innovative ships, and the new Enchantment did not disappoint. Two new dining choices were really excellent. We had to wait all week to get one reservation at the new Chops Grille (we waited until day three to look into it-next time we'll do it right away). But, it was worth the wait-the restaurant is beautiful and cozy, the service was even better than the already great service the dining room staff usually delivers, and the steaks and chops were outstanding, comparable to any great steak house. The Windjammer buffet really isn't a "buffet" anymore, now it's like a cool marketplace/food court with many more choices, stations you can approach from all sides (so no endless line!). Very wide-open and airy feeling, a huge step up from the typical ship buffet. We loved all the nightlife options. The shows were great but we really enjoyed the new latin club, Boleros, the Champagne Bar and the live music at Schooner's Pub. Felt like a totally different night out, every single night. The new Seattle's Best coffee shop and the new Ben and Jerry's didn't hurt, either! The new ship features are most apparent on the pool deck, truly one of the most beautiful we've ever seen. The multi-color splash pool and suspension bridge are amazing, but the best new element has to be the Oasis Bar. Right in the middle of the pool area, the new bar has panoramic oceanviews (and barstools facing the ocean) and a new section behind the bar with a glass floor that fans out over the water. If you're not afraid of heights, it's an amazing sight! Our stateroom was cozy and had some new features (really liked the new shower 'door" vs the old curtains which always got the floor soaked). Lots of new storage elements have been aded, easy to unpack and fell like there was a place for everything. Overall we have to say the ship was really impressive, the staff was wonderful as always, and even if you've sailed on Enchantment before, she's worth a second look.
