My husband and I were first time cruisers so didn't know what to expect. We booked the cruise because we thought it was good value. We were on the Carnival Spirit that left Sydney to the South Pacific for 12 nights. We had a balcony on ... Read more

We have done three P and O cruises and felt it was time for a change. Carnival seemed like a good option as we are sailing with a shy 12 year old. The cabin was a premium balcony and very spacious. There was plenty of room for our ... Read more

We are a couple in our late 50's who wanted to taste our first ever cruise. The Carnival Spirit was the one recommended to us by friends. We had booked a balcony cabin 7239 mid-ship close to the lift. It was very quiet and yet we were ... Read more

Ok... Where to start? This is my second, and my partner's first cruise. I had previously sailed with P&O out of Brisbane around 18 months ago, and while (for the most part) I enjoyed that cruise, I was not confident that my partner ... Read more

Fantastic value for money - we paid less for the cruise and flights from NZ to Australia than one week in a hotel in Fiji without food and airfares. This value comes at a price of course...the food is largely 3 star standard whereas ... Read more
