The staff were friendly and helpful we were given stateroom 8265 which has terrible reviews that it certainly lived up to, it has the pool pumps on the other side of the wall the noise is terrible, however after putting up with the noise in that room for 3 days we complained and were moved, my problem is when we were allocated that room before we boarded we rung both the travel agent cruise Republic and Carnival to ask if we could be allocated another stateroom we were told the ship was full and we could only move if we paid for a upgrade, which was obviously untrue because we were moved to the same class of stateroom 3 days into the cruise as 8265 just wasn't noisy. If Carnival cared about their guests they wouldn't sell this room at all. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was the biggest out of any of the other cruises we've been on. Bed was comfy,except for the ridge in the middle, as this is the thing in all ships.
Bathroom was good size, you can actually get in it without flooding the place out. Bit of movement at night, but that was ok. Only thing was,the cleaners room was right next door & they start cleaning at 8 am, that's ok if you're already up & haven't been partying all night. Hahaha Read entire member review >>
Our cabin on the Carnival Spirit was surprisingly big, considering how much closet and storage space you get. There were four rows of closets and shelves for clothes and shoes and two sets of drawers for socks, bathing suits and other stuff. I really appreciated the seated vanity area with the large counter space and huge lighted mirror - this is where I put on my makeup and did my hair each night. Even in the bathroom we found two sets of glass shelves for our toiletries. Each of us got a bedside table cubby, too, for earplugs, flashlight, etc. Our room steward, Sitti, was just a peach. We made sure to give her an extra tip on the last day because her service was just exceptional. Read entire member review >>
