Beyond expectations for first timer by JohnP12

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

Overall experience was excellent. The shipboard maintenance at all levels was outstanding. The crew made every effort to assure our experience was excellent. I only had an issue with one crew member from the entertainment section who was in charge of my area during the life board & life jacket donning instruction. Things were moving quickly and he was a little too quick with orders, but not clear on specific instruction. He was rather caustic if you didn't catch his instructions. As a first time passenger, I was a little put off by this. (By the way, I'm retired Coast Guard and have a fair handle on shipboard emergencies with civilians)>

The ship is in need of serious renovation in the cabins. Public areas were clean and did not show its age as much.

Best cruise ever by David15

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

Everything was perfect. Even won at bingo and helped pay many costs. Everything went so well and thanks to Carnival for being so efficient. I actually cannot think of anything I would change to improve. They thought of everything. Also the people at Ptriceline were very helpful and made me feel at ease when booking the cruise.

Lot's of picture taking opportunities :) by ScottT5

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

breakfast and lunch was good, but I would have liked biscuits and gravy for breakfast. The daily drink was a great way to try something different everyday and for a good price. Reusing the glass you buy on the first day of the cruise, will save you 1$ on every drink after the first :)

A one of a kind vacation by Jamv4

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Carnival Spirit / Destination: Alaska

This is a wonderful vacation from the moment is sailed and came back to Seattle. We appreciate the cleanliness, orderliness of the ship and staff. We love coming back to our clean room every night. My son would take pictures of the character towels and can't stop showing to his friends. We love coming back to our anytime dining and look forward to the delicacy they are serving that day. We also appreciate the lido food because of its varied selection. However, we felt that it was always crowded and availability of places to eat was scarce. This made eating in Lido longer and at times a hassle. We love the night shows such as comedy, jazz and karaoke. The Camp was a hit to my son. He can't stop raving about to his friends! The excursions were an added bonus as we can already enjoy Alaska's scenery from our ship. However, this is not to undermine the excursions as this is one of the best part of our vacation as well. It was truly an amazing experience and a vacation well worth it.

Our 40th Anniversary Alaska Cruise by WildaP

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

We had an absolutely wonderful time on our trip to Alaska on the Spirit booked through . We went the end of May and had wonderful weather while we were there and everyone was friendly and accommodating. The only problem we had for the whole week was in Skagway someone on the dock gave us wrong information about where to wait for our excursion and it caused us to miss our train. Be sure to read very carefully where to meet for your excursions. This was the first time we booked the balcony. We loved it!!!

Alaska Here We Come by PattyS70574046

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

This is our fourth Carnival Cruise ship. We have been on the Tropicale, the Conquest, the Splendor, three months ago and now the Spirit. Each ship had it's own personality due to decor. Eventhough the Splendor is decorated completely different from the Spirit it was nice that the deck plans were similair. The ship was very clean and everyone was friendly. Already booked another cruise on Carnival Miracle to Hawaii for 15 nights.

Relaxing and Interesting by JohnB30

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

This is a cruise for those looking for something different. No beaches. No heavy partying. If you are expecting to see crystal clear skies 24/7 you will be disappointed. What you will see is a temperate rain forest ecosystem that is beautiful, pristine and clean. There will be plenty of time to relax as the shore time is at a minimum. There are three nights before one arrives in Skagway, which is the longest shore day. Tracey Arm was not accessible on our cruise because of icebergs but the scenery was exceptional. We recommend the Chilcoot hike/float in Skagway. We did not purchase a Carnival excursion in Juneau and boy, were we glad we waited. There were numerous vendors lined up on the dock with great prices....$16 round trip to the Mendenhall Glacier. Fantastic! There is very little time in Ketchican, but for some cheap natural history walk to the Totem Heritage Center: $5 bucks! Victoria, BC, was a waste for shore time. Only four hours. This was just enough time to walk to the city center and back. Overall we found that the boat was excellent, the food was good and the service just fine. We were too early in the season for the salmon run. As a result, the bears were not down at the streams yet....although we did see a couple of black bears, a few Eagles and various other wildlife.....watch for whales next to the ship! This was an enjoyable trip.

Great Cruise by Karen6

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

This is an older ship, but it's still nice. I like the fact that it's smaller - easier to get around, no waiting in buffet lines or long waits for elevators. Had a wonderful time!
