Carnival Spirit is a good ship to cruise on. Good public rooms and cabin fine. Kept very clean and tidy, But I made the mistake of choosing a cruse in school holidays - not a cruise for the solo traveler over 60. The food in the Empire ... Read more

We had the most wonderful time on this cruise. And the staff made it extra wonderful. Each day we had breakfast and lunch in the bistro, and in the evenings we had dinner in the restaurant. Early sitting at 5:30. This timing suited us, ... Read more

We chose this cruise as it is known for really good value for money, a good medium size ship and had good reviews. The food was so good. There is so much to choose from as the dining room alone changes its menu every night. And it's 3 ... Read more

Having only sailed P&O we were excited to see a cheap deal that was difficult to pass up. We loved that Carnival had luggage helpers curbside, out suitcases were taken straight from the taxi. With the hubby having mobility issues we ... Read more

After leaving such a negative report on the Ovation of the Seas in Jan I thought it only fair I should leave a report on our last cruise on Carnival Spirit in March. We first cruised on this ship back in 2001 doing the Los Angles to ... Read more

We chose this ship because we were taking (grown up) Grand Daughter and Great Grandson for their first cruise and thought the facilities would be more their liking than our 'usual' ships - Princess, Holland America, Royal Caribbean & ... Read more

The ship was great and the service from the carnival staff was exceptional from the wait staff, drink staff to the cabin stewards, (especially Moses and the other bar staff at the Red Frog Rum Bar). While the twenty four hour pizza was ... Read more

We chose this cruise to relax, have fun and make lasting memories for our family. We succeeded! It was truly an amazing, pampering experience. To not have to think about cooking, house work, food shopping was a blessing. The ... Read more

We choose this cruise as it appeared that it would have enough options to keep us and our teenagers (15 & 16) entertained. We were right. The teenagers immediately became part of the O2 Club and we barely saw them, other than for ... Read more

If anything, this is definitely a fun boat. Lots of activities for everyone and a great energy. While the service is inconsistent it's generally positive. The process of getting on board was particularly patchy. The number of times ... Read more
