Loved a Trans-Pacific I done in 2015 on legend, so after 12 cruises on Spirit & timing was right, so went ahead.. The ship had just been refurnished, I found some upgrades good, but not enough, still had rust around my Balcony.. Food was good.. Loved having entertainment starting at 3:00 with 2 bands in Main Bar & having a afternoon comedian in "The Punchliner" on Sea - Days. Wish they change up the stage shows a bit... The customer service was great Bar staff; Waiters & room Stewards.. Carnival is renowen for this... The price of there cruises are very low, The drinks low also. unless you want a drinks package with other lines. The daily activities where great & Bad. They had a professor talking about the ports themselves (Culture, Food&Drink, History) eg Komodo Is & Phuket. The miss was the trivia (had too many people cheating) they policed it if they where giving away Alchoal etc. The Biggest issue was the age demo of this cruise 2000 above the age of 60 & only under 140 below under18.. Carnival is normally a family cruise line, this cruise looked more like a Princess. As one other cruiser just under 50 said 'looks like a boat going to heaven or a retirement village. Read Less

We had previously cruised on Carnival Spirit in March 2013. We selected this cruise, and the previous one from Sydney, as a way of getting to SE Asia. We are in our late 60's and have previously cruised with Princess and P&O. The embarkation was staggered. We selected a 1130 - 1200 slot but on arrival there was about a 60 minute delay. We went straight to lunch and by the time we had finished, our cabin was ready. The safety brief was held on deck 3 under the lifeboats in the 30+ c Singapore tropical heat. We were on the eastern side and I was glad we were not on the Western side. The brief was the quickest have ever experienced. The ship had just undergone a 2 week dry-dock. We had the same inside cabin on the way up and noticed that we had new carpets and shower curtains. In one of the drawers was the working clothes left by a Filipino contract worker who used the cabin during the dry-dock. The inside cabin, 6159, was a bigger size that the inside ones we get on Sun or Sea Princess. The shower was also bigger. The location was quite with little noise disturbing us. We had a fixed time late sitting and were placed on a 12 seat table. Most nights there was only a max of 6. Our waiters were great as was the course selections. Unfortunately, it was a rare to get a hot meal. There was plenty of entertainment offered and the highlight for us was the "Miss Houdini" show with the production cast members. Eli, the cruise director was always friendly and entertaining. The prizes handed out were much more than I have seen on our previous cruises with Princess and P&O. We even got a bottle of red wine and a bathrobe. The Monarch card room was very crowded with the library now incorporated. Many people coming and going and very few of them closing the door when leaving. We enjoyed all the ports visited and had a mix of private and ships tours. The procedure for tendering in Phuket was a shambles. Our group was called, but before we got to the tenders, another group from the other side was given priority, splitting up our group. When we finally got to shore, 45 minutes late for the stated starting time, the other 7 coaches had already left. We then waited another 30 minutes until the last of our group arrived to fill the last 2 coaches. Needless to say, we never made up the lost time. Rather than missing the jewellery factory, we missed the temple. Speaking to others on the other coaches, they all said the Temple was one of the highlights. The ships tour in Bali was excellent. We went to the twin lakes, Monkey forest had a great lunch and a stop at a Batik factory. I also purchased one of my favorite tropical fruits, mangosteens, at a local market. They were delicious. The service offered by all staff was excellent. We would defiantly cruise with Carnival again. Read Less

This was our third cruise on Spirit and second relocation from Singapore. After the shamozzle of the last embarkation at Singapore, I think Carnival learnt some lessons and all went pretty smoothly. We departed a few hours late but that was to be expected considering the need to completely replenish the ship and remove rubbish after dry dock.The visible enhancements after dry dock included some new carpet in some public areas, the new craft room "Soul Play", the new duty free shops, the new games and, apparently, new gym equipment...but I don't frequent such places. This is a cruise ! She also had a brand spanking new exterior paint job which, according to the captain, added 1 knot to the cruise speed. All the usual suspects are still there. Desi in the Empire Restaurant, great shows in the theatre, dirty jokes in the late Comedy Show and the Manila Band in the Red Frog. The crew were as friendly and helpful as ever and the buffet served the usual "delicacies". When you get on Spirit, you know what you're going to get....and you usually get it. It's pretty laid back, the Captain is very visible and approachable...as are a lot of the other Officers, including Duncan, the Hotel Director. The cabins are clean and well looked after, the meals in the Empire Restaurant are "nice", with the meat such as lamb shanks being standouts...as they are slow cooked. The entertainment in the Restaurant is now even more impressive...as new crew talent is continually found and groomed. Fantastic atmosphere. It's probably not worth going into Port reviews as they are rarely visited by this ship, but needless to say, if you get a chance to visit Komodo Island, do it. Airlie Beach and Gladstone were also surprisingly good. Darwin is Darwin and Bali is worth a visit for first timers. My only gripe with the cruise was the dirty external windows...especially in the buffet. They were grubbby from the dry dock and they didnt appear to be ever cleaned. What a waste of a great vantage point. All in all, a relaxing, value for money cruise. Read Less

We chose Carnival as we have cruised with them three times before. We chose this particular cruise as we were visiting friends in Singapore. We stayed there for six days before boarding. It actually seemed very disorganised boarding in Singapore. Usually we don't have a problem. Also a lot of problems with missed luggage and missing luggage tags (that were well attached to bags in a lot of cases we were told about). Don't know what the problem was but I suspect it was the handling in the port. As we didn't leave port until after 9:00pm that night (very late), and that was down to everything not being loaded on the ship in time, I would say the luggage problem was caused by the baggage handlers in port. Once we got on the ship we had to line up again. Cabin was good as usual. Plenty of room with our suitcases under the bed. I don't think the two weeks in dry dock weren't enough for what needed to be done. Our balcony had paint everywhere - on the floor and on the chairs. No care taken by the painters at all. No problems with the food. Dining room was great as per usual. Thee was a problem in the buffet with people taking up tables to play games, read books, use their computer etc. It was hard enough to find a table without these selfish people. Obviously lunchtime is busy. Why they can't use these tables out of the busy times? That is one of the biggest problems on board a ship I think. So many others complained about it too and said it happened on all ships. Must be fixed. This cruise, the entertainment was very hit and miss. There were a few wonderful entertainers in the theatre, and some rather pitiful. A lot of very disappointed people and a lot of complaints. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our cruise even with the above problems. Our next cruise is a Princess one so will be very interesting to compare. Read Less
