First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

After reading posts on Cruise Critic we decided to get into Seattle a day early and stayed at the Westin in Downtown Seattle. The Westin is a perfect place to stay. It is centrally located for all the touristy things to do in Seattle. The roms are very confortable and with our room in the north tower, an excellent view of the Space Needle. The Carnival Spirit is a beautiful ship. All the ...

Boarding was very smooth, but a bit long in Seattle. Our luggage arrived to our room without any issues. Tough to get elevators when you first board because of the elevators being used for baggage movement. It was perfect having a cabin with french doors so you could open them and get fresh air. It didn't matter that we had an obstructed view by the life boats, as long as we could get ...

After spending many hours researching our Alaskan cruise by reading other reviews, I knew I had to write my own review at the conclusion of the trip. So, here's my report which will focus on the ship and the excursions, none of which were booked through Carnival. We overpaid for the airport transfer but only realized that after we'd booked and no refunds were allowed. Even though it was ...

The Seattle Port is average and a little dis-organized, but overall not bad. We boarded the ship about 1:30pm and went to the Atrium Bar where we were suprised to find the Awesome Beverage Program being offered. We purchased the open bar program and it was great. You still signed for each beverage, but it showed the price, then credited back that price. We found it well worth the money. (with ...

This was one of our best vacations. We arrived in Seattle a few days early and spent time enjoying the waterfront and downtown. It is a fun city! I was concerned about staying downtown when making reservations, so we stayed at The Inn at Queen Anne, Queen Anne district. This is an old hotel, very charming, but, remember, it is old. It doesn't have an elevator, so ask for a first floor ...

My husband and I had a fabulous honeymoon aboard the Carnival Spirit on the August 7, 2012 sailing. It was my third cruise and first on Carnival, and his first cruise ever. After getting married on Saturday, we arrived in Seattle on Monday for a cruise that left on Tuesday. I highly recommend getting there a day or more early. First, it's far less stressful. Second, Seattle is an awesome city! ...

Aloha everyone, It might be long, but I'm hoping there's a thing or two that can make your trip more enjoyable. We flew into Seattle a day early and stayed a day after we returned from our cruise. Our three daughters and each of their guest had never been to Seattle before so we did the typical tourist, or first time guests, things. We found a small family restaurant serving local ( to ...

Since I read so many reviews before sailing, I thought I would try and give details from our cruise to help other cruisers. We were on a Quilting Cruise through Travel Connections in Illinois. My business partner and I were teaching on the cruise while the ship was at sea. It is a great way to go if you are a quilter! In case you are wondering, you don't have to bring a machine. Bunny has a dealer ...

August 28th sailing on the Carnival Spirit. Probably our favorite vacation to date an we've done our share of traveling. We arrived in Seattle the Saturday before the cruise. We splurged a bit and opted for car services for our transportation. We used Sabre Limo- reasonable, no issues. We stayed at the Fairmont Olympic for 3 nights prior. This is one of the older hotels in the city but it is a ...

I traveled on the Spirit to Alaska on my Honeymoon last year with my husband. It was our first cruise experience. We chose Carnival because they offer a wedding registry program, where your wedding guests can make purchases toward your trip. We found this to be a great way to supplement our costs and it cut down on cumbersome gifts to transport home after our destination wedding. We found the ...
