The embarkation process was quick and painless. The transfer staff was courteous and efficient. The Spirit is a beautiful ship, and is very easy to navigate. Since I love Egyptian art, I really enjoyed the decor in the Pharoah's Lounge. The ship is very well maintained and very clean. My cabin had a picture sized window. It was spacious with plenty of storage space. The bathroom was well ...

We booked the cruise in February 2009 directly through the Carnival website at the Past Guest rate. A couple of days before the Early Saver 5-month deadline, we converted our booking to the ES rate. That resulted in a $60 credit on our final payment. After final payment date the prices only increased so we did not receive any OBC nor were we ever offered an upgrade or upsell. Still we were very ...

We are from Montreal, Quebec so we know what winter, snow and cold weather mean. So when I told my husband that I wanted to go to Alaska for the summer he was a little bit hard to convince. But we did no regret the trip at all. there were six of us: my husband and I, our daughter, my niece, my mom and my aunt who flew all the way from France. We flew the day before from Montreal to Vancouver and ...

Since in the weeks and months leading up to our July 1, 2009 cruise on the Carnival Spirit I was constantly searching for new reviews, I was determined to post mine in a timely fashion.  Overall, our vacation was fabulous - and this was our 10th cruise.  The most amazing thing was the weather!  In the 10 days we were in Alaska - we had rain on 2 days - the days we were "at sea" - so it really ...

7 Day South Bound Alaskan Cruise on Carnival Spirit July 2009   My wife and I took the 7-day Alaska cruise on Carnival Spirit, departing from Whittier, Alaska on July 1, 2009.  We had good weather (mostly sunny with highs in the 60s and 70s) for the first 6 days of the cruise.  The week before the weather was overcast and wet with highs in the high 50's. The following is my review of our ...

We just came back from 7 days Alaska cruise from Whittier to Vancouver on Carnival Spirit. Alaska is unbelievable beautiful, I am sure we will go back again. Carnival or even cruising, we are not so sure. Food: Very very bad. We have read from several books that Carnival has one of the best cuisines among mainstream cruise lines. All I can say is I can't imagine how the food can be ...

 My wife is 63 and I'm 66.  We have cruised several times before - the last time on the Glory in 2008.  We've cruised the Inside Passage twice (NCL Spirit and NCL Star) and enjoyed both of these.  We booked several months in advance with Ashley at MOAA, and booked our excursions with CCL after comparing prices and finding very little significant difference. We flew Delta from Atlanta to Salt Lake ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Background: We have cruised several times before, most recently on the Miracle in 2007.  My wife is 39 and I'm 38.  We left the kids at home for this trip.  We booked the cruise about 3 months out and used CC to plan all the excursions.  Since we were cruising without kids this time, we didn't feel the need to use Carnival excursions and we also used credit card points to pay for most of the ...

This was my wife and my second cruise (we had previously taken a Princess Caribbean cruise in January 2008). We travel several times per year, but are relatively new to cruises. Our lodging and travel to our port of embarkation and from our port of debarkation was not arranged by the Carnival. Our entry onto the ship and the handling of bags were accomplished in a very efficient and ...
