We chose this cruise because the site boasted a promising family experience with plenty on board for little ones. In actual fact if it's too cold for swimming and your little ones are too shy for the kids club then there is very little ... Read more

We went on this cruise as a family group of 10 ranging in age from 2.5 years to 73. As noted in other reviews, this ship is incredibly gaudy and over the top in terms of decorations, so a little hard on the eyes! Having cruised before on ... Read more

I'd never considered going on a Carnival cruise before this trip. Perhaps the snob in me said it was too down market and there were better alternatives around. The price however was right as was the timing so we said 'why not' and I'm glad ... Read more

Very pleased with this cruise - it was a great price as we booked it online as a last minute fare. Our room which was nice - was at the front of the ship so it was very rocky. The facilities on board were excellent and everything was ... Read more

By mistake! We did not notice the "Family Friendly" statements. I have never seen so many overactive kids on any previous cruise. Families would find this ship ideal to allow their kids let their hair down while they relax in ... Read more

I have always had a great time on the Spirit. It's the staff that keep me coming back, also the islands we visit. I would say that if at all possible to eat at the dining room as it's much less noisy from the people in the buffet area. ... Read more

Carnival Spirit is a good ship to cruise on. Good public rooms and cabin fine. Kept very clean and tidy, But I made the mistake of choosing a cruse in school holidays - not a cruise for the solo traveler over 60. The food in the Empire ... Read more
