Review for Carnival Spirit to Australia & New Zealand

The Carnival Spirit embarked on a once in a lifetime cruise in the fall of 2012 so that the ship could become a permanent member of Carnival Australia's fleet. The cruise started in Alaska and ultimately ended in Sydney. A number of passengers made the entire trip but a large part of the group boarded in Honolulu. The majority of passengers were from Australia, New Zealand, and Europe. A large ...

First I will break the cruise down to two sections: GOOD and NOT SO GOOD (BAD) GOOD: Our cabin was great (7246 on Verandah Deck). It seemed to be roomier than the last Princess cruise we did and we also had an extended balcony. This came about because the ship is recessed in to allow for the tender boats and when you have an extended cabin you do look down onto the tender boats, but that did ...

We cruised from Honolulu to Sydney via Tahiti. We have cruised before with RCCL and HAL and I have always wanted to do this itinerary. Three girls I worked with were keen so we all booked it along with our families. In all we were a group of 22 ranging from 6 years to 60 plus years. Only four of the kids were actual kids, the others were adult children in their 20s. All the parents had cruised ...

We've sailed on Princess, Rhapsody and some P&O cruises so I'm comparing the ship to them. Overall I wouldn't sail with Carnival again as they don't compete. We had 3 kids 16, 13,11. There always some good points and bad so I will explain on each. An exhaustive embarkation about one and half hrs. The cabins were good and quite large. The cabin and restaurant staff good. Food in the ...

I had never cruised with Carnival America before. It took quite a long time to board this ship, lots of elderly passengers having to wait in long lines to board the ship. I'm not used to having to give up my passport to a cruise company until we were ready to get off the ship,but I got over it in the end:) Our cabin on deck 1 was the biggest that I have stayed in so far for an inside cabin, the ...

Boarding in Honolulu was chaos,the staff did not seem to have any experience,luggage did not arrive at cabin till 1 hour after sailing [even though we were at the port 5 hours before sailing].The cruise director [Stu],had the personality of a squashed snail [a nice guy,but not suited to the task]At each port there were lengthy delays going ashore [the excuse was always,we have not been here before ...

Hi Cruisers! Up until cruising with Carnival, John and myself had only cruised with P@O. We had cruised around Australia and also to the South Pacific Islands - Isle of Pines, Lefou, Mare, Noumea and Fiji. It was a friend of ours, Stacey, a seasoned cruiser, who incidentally, we met on the Pacific Dawn, who suggested that we all go on the Carnival Spirit Repositioning Cruise from Honolulu.  To ...

Our cruise on the carnival Spirit was great, it took awhile to figure if we liked the design , very unusual,but it grew on us, the food was probably the best we have had to date,the staff were wonderful,and the entertainment was superb.Boarding the boat was horrendous, it would seem they had no idea, like wise the dining arrangements completely disorganised the first meal had a cue stretching way ...

Firstly I thought I had submitted my review but on reflection I forgot as we were away for so long it just slipped my mind. But nevertheless here goes. We arrived in Honolulu from Australia (there was a large contingent of Aussies on this cruise due to the packaging of Fire and Ice cruise land deal). After 10 hour flight we were tired and the wait in the hot sun was tiring and the usual ...

We just arrived home to Vancouver from Hawaii yesterday, and wanted to get this off while things are fresh in the mind. There was a foreshadow of this cruise not going smoothly when we never had our cabin number confirmed until we arrived at the dock in Honolulu, where we lined up up for far too long in the heat we were not used to yet, to board the ship. Then, when we entered the dockside ...
