Carnival Spirit - First time family cruises
Destination: South Pacific
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)
The food was good and plentiful, we ate at the Empire restaurant every night and had breakfast and lunch at the buffet every day. The kids made the most of the 24hr pizza bar and also the 24hr soft serve ice cream. We did not get the soft drink package for the kids thought they would get enough sugar without that, plenty of free water and lemon cordial.
The entertainment was awesome the big band, jazz, Michael Jackson tribute shows every night. There were also comedians every night, early shows More for the kids and two adult only shows later on.
The massages on the ship were very expensive (Starting from approx. $200). One tip I have which we did was to get a massage at Port Villa when we were off the ship. There was a massage place next door to the hotel "Grand Hotel and Casino" cost $40.00 AUD. $5AUD each person for a taxi from the ship into town.
We also went and visited Iririki Island, the jetty is also next door to the hotel "Grand Hotel and Casino", for $15AUD adults, $10AUD kids you get the boat across you can use all the non motorised water sports including free hire of snorkel gear at snorkel cove, use of the two large pools and you can also put the $50AUD towards food and beverages you buy on the island.
Get your duty free alcohol from Port Villa as well a lot cheaper than on the boat. Less
We had a inside cabin was very cosy but that's what we paid for. I would recommend getting a balcony suite.
Good first time cruise
