Ship Facts: Carnival Spirit Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Carnival Spirit Deck Plans
Great Get Away
So we usually do a cruise. This time to keep it simple we did The Mexican Riviera ~ again. This cruise was the fourth time for the "Riviera". First time for Carnival.

The Cabin and balcony were great.Lots of storage and space under the beds for our suitcases, bath adequate with a "seashell" full of freebies ~ toothpaste, "Snore Strips" disposable razor, Cabin Steward Rahan

kept it all perfect ~ and course there were towel animals every night ~ and mints. The new TV was abysmal ~ but we didn't cruise for the TV.

The food was simple and sometimes a little like Applebees ~ but there were choices. The greatest plus for us was the "free" Espresso at dinner. Service at dinner was attentive and professional.

We enjoyed the cruise and the ship. We found that the ship was a little dark for us the atrium small ~ but this all a personal preference. There have been a lot of cut backs in the cruise industry ~ but for the

price of this cruise it was just what we needed. We enjoyed relaxing in The new Serenity area ~ with its great hot tub and pool. Lunch here was a quiet and relaxing time . The sunny weather set in after Ensenada. Cabo was great. We did Zip-Lining the first day and just walked to the beach the second day.

Puerta Vallarta was another zip-line adventure ~ Extreme Canopy ~ well worth the money. Manzinillo, we took a tour to Colima wonderful archaeological tour and history of the area.

Would we do the "Riviera" again, maybe, would we do Carnival again for sure.
