Ship Facts: Carnival Spirit Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Spirit Deck Plans
Christmas on the Carnival Spirit

Just got back from a 8 night Christmas cruise on the Carnival Spirit - great intro to cruising!!

Hard to fault the cleanliness or majority of staff.

Cruise was very well organised & no extensive lines or waiting times experienced.

Shows were excellent & were always worth the time - good variety & very spectacular.

Great room close to lifts but away from noise etc. Only issue was the balcony was locked during the last night at sea due to some rainy weather - would have been great to have been given prior notice just in case you left items on the balcony drying!! I checked & the door was still locked tight until we left the ship in Sydney.  Cabin steward was good & always kept room spotless - earned his tip multiple timers over!!!

A couple of issues however were:

**Saw several kids & some adults slipping over on the decks near Green Thunder etc. - could do with some anti slip tape. This simple fix may prevent a very painful memory for someone on the cruise.

**Was a bit disappointed that smokers had a spot set up near the pools were everyone has to walk through the clouds of smoke etc. - maybe a glassed in section vented to the outside would improve the outlook? In the end I just avoided going through that area to get away from the stench.

**Became a battle to get a "pod" or deck recliner in the adults only Serenity Lounge - maybe some sort of booking system to give everyone a fair chance at experiencing this area. Each day you would see the same people trot out very early & stake a claim to a seat etc. & that was considered theirs for the day - never saw any Serenity staff enforcing the 40 minutes towel removal as sign posted.
