Carnival Spirit Cruise Review by DMJKelowna: Carnival Spirit = Three Ring Circus!
Overall Member Rating
Carnival Spirit = Three Ring Circus!
As first time cruisers we were hoping for a relaxing holiday with 5 days at sea and then lovely visits to the Hawaiian Islands. We certainly got the latter but a relaxing holiday it was not.
First, avoid any embarkation that involves San Diego with a transfer to Ensenada - disastrous.
Second, the Spirit is looking tired and needs a refit.
Third, the food is average at best - avoid the casual buffet at all costs.
Entertainment, also tired and second rate.
Way too much smoking allowed for this day & age.
Used Roberts Hawaii for shore trips - much better value than on-board.
The whole trip seemed to be 'hurry up & wait'.
Not sure if we'll cruise again, but it certainly won't be on Carnival! Less

Cabin review: STR7219
Nice cabin but the plumbing seemed to be a bit inconsistent. Balcony was nice & large. Pity the people next door had to smoke all the time!
