Ship Facts: Carnival Spirit Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Spirit Deck Plans
excellent except eats
Third cruise in two years, 2nd on Carnival. Embarkation was a breeze unlike last two cruises. Luggage was at cabin when finished with lunch on Lido deck. Food was average at buffet entire cruise, not quite hot enough. Cabin was on deck 6, a balcony cabin with sufficient room and clean. Steward was very attentive to freshening cabin and also personable. Entertainment was adequate in theater with Carnival dancers and the "legends show.

Shore excursions were overpriced,especially Luau at Hyatt Regency on Maui. $300.00 for two.

Dining in Empire room was hit and miss. The service was outstanding but the quality and choice of food were dismal. I believe we have been spoiled by quality of the food on the Pride.

If I were to choose a repositioning cruise again it would not include 5 long days at sea.

Disembarkation was a nightmare, buses to transport passengers from Ensenada to San Diego sat for an unusually long time before departing and the wait at the Mexican border was unusually long. Our luggage was not on the bus we were on and when we arrived at airport we had to wait 1/2 hour for the bus to arrive with our luggage on it. Nobody from Carnival was insight at airport to coordinate this fiasco. One couple lost a bag and was late for their flight.

I would sail on Carnival again but probably not on the Spirit.
