Ship Facts: Carnival Spirit Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Spirit Deck Plans
One of my best ever holidays!

One of my best holidays! I am well travelled and had cruised before and I am pleased to say this cruise exceeded my expectations. After reading some reviews I was a bit worried - No reason to be.

I normally stay in 4-5 star hotels so can be quite fussy. Knowing this was not going to be a 5 star experience I am pleased to report it was great. Meals were great, buffet choice was huge, all food was fresh and plenty of choice. We had breakfast up in the Grill on deck 9 each day. We dinned in the main restaurant "opted for free dinning" which was good as we could go along anytime. The wait for a table was short and they buzz you when ready. The Nouveau Restaurant, which you pay AUD40 per person, was well worth it, some of the best steak I have eaten and cooked to perfection. Portions are huge and they have an extensive wine list.

One thing I could not find prior to the trip was the cost for drinks. I sneaked a copy of the drinks menu. So

here you go: NZ Sauvignon Blanc $9 glass, $35 bottle - Red wine from $7.50 per glass, $29 per bottle - Bubbles $8.50 per glass, $33 bottle - Veuve Clicquot $115 per bottle. - Heineken, Stella $7.50 - Spirits $7.50 - Daily cocktails are around $10 and are potent. we found these prices fine as that is what you would pay at a land resort.

The service was great, embarkation and departing ship was seamless, you can self carry your bags off.


Take extra coat hangers, stretchy cord to keep deck door open, washing powder (ship has laundry or only $12 for bag of laundry) small thermos to take hot drinks back to cabin.

Go with a positive attitude and you will have a great time!! You don't have to lift a finger for 9 days or sit back and relax.
