Terrible customer service. Had to line up in huge lines for food everyday, lines for kids club (waited about 45 minutes the first day and they tried to pass me someone else's child to pick up). My Children hated the kids club, they barely ... Read more

Great family holiday for a first time cruising family like ours. The check in process was so much easier than departing from an airport. As there are 5 in our family, we has two internal cabinets next to each other, 6118 & 6120. Rooms ... Read more

What a poor cruise. May be good for families with kids, but as an older couple who went outside of school holidays, this was a disaster. Over 400 kids. We were expecting a few younger kids but not this number. As a result all pools were ... Read more

We first flew from Melbourne to Sydney and stayed in the Rendevous Hotel at The Rocks, we much preferred the rooms with the view over the Harbor (You can watch the ship come in) to the older style terrace homes! Both our embarkation and ... Read more

Short break. As expected, crew was friendly and efficient. Use of passenger name in conversation is a nice touch that pervades interactions. The refresher intent of the cruise was marred by unsupervised children in the Lido dining ... Read more

I thought I'd take the time to write a decent review of the carnival cruise (spirit) liner considering I struggled so hard to find one before our trip. All communication with carnival was efficient prior to our trip and we were well ... Read more

Hi, Just some word of advice, you need to be very careful before you decide to cruise with Carnival. The Spirit is in poor shape, in cabin furniture falling apart, gym equipment not working, mini golf course in tatters, broken doors and ... Read more

I was initially hesitant at booking a cruise on a ship noted for young families. I can honestly say it was one of the best cruises I have ever done. The children were well controlled until the last night when they started to run about but ... Read more

A family of 6 and never having been on a holiday before, we chose a cruise because it looked like a lot of fun. Our cabins were midships, 2 ocean suites with balconies and I have to say, the little bit extra that we paid for a balcony ... Read more

We decided to try Carnival Spirit as the sailing fell into our annual leave time frame, WELL! What a huge mistake! We have sailed before many times on RCI and Princess, so we are comparing Carnival to these lines. Before even ... Read more
