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

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

Our cruise was the first for my wife and I, and our first time away from the kids so our first holiday as just a couple again. My folks are massive cruisers, they do 2 or 3 a year all over the world so we had a wealth of advice to draw ... Read more

Embarkation was a simple, quick process, with plenty of helpful staff to look after us. I'm elderly, and took my 3 grandsons, aged 4, 7, and 9 on a 5 night cruise. Our stateroom was cosy but cramped for 4 people. For a longer cruise ... Read more

Firstly I would like to say we had a great time on the cruise but now we've ticked that box would be unlikely to do this again. Perhaps we will try a shorter cruise. I am worried that this will become the new 'Bali Bogan Holiday' for ... Read more
