We chose this ship and cruise as Len's sister and husband were sailing on her. The ports of call were of no consequence as we had been to them all before but we wanted to experience another cruise line. We found the entertainment ... Read more

I have always had a great time on the Spirit. It's the staff that keep me coming back, also the islands we visit. I would say that if at all possible to eat at the dining room as it's much less noisy from the people in the buffet area. ... Read more

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

There's something to be said for going aboard as a returning passenger. This was our third time sailing on the Carnival Spirit. An Easter cruise was the perfect antidote to the autumn school holiday craziness with my three teenage ... 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

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 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
