Balcony view of room 5189. Top of lifeboat view from this room's balcony.
The gross state of serenity pool the entire 8 day journey. People were using it the entire time too. No thank you!
Weird decor. Get comfortable with seeing exposed breasts depicted around the ship. This was main atrium area.
Lido pool with broken cover remained open entire trip despite cold and rainy conditions

Our 12 day cruise started in Honolulu, toured the Hawaiian islands for 7 days, 5 days at sea and ended in Ensenada, Mexico. We had cruised often before but not for 12 years, we had retired young and moved to Mexico so always seemed to be on holidays. Anyway after 10 years we decided to take a one month holiday, 2 weeks touring islands in Hawaii and end with this 12 day cruise on the Carnival ship ...

We are a married couple in our sixties living in Orange County, CA. Even though we are not retired yet it was our third vacation this year. We had also a Princess cruise in January and a resort stay in Mexico in May of this year. It was our fourteenth cruise, fifth cruise on Carnival, and the third one on Spirit. We booked this cruise well in advance - in February. First, I do research on ...

Hawaii - Carnival Spirit - April 23-May 5, 2010 Overall, this was a wonderful cruise on the Spirit. This was my 8th cruise and the fourth time on a Carnival ship (second time on the Spirit). I was travelling "solo", however, it was nice to meet many wonderful people (a number of whom were Cruise Critic members). THE SHIP: The Spirit was a large ship, but smaller than many of the new ships ...

This cruise allows you to see all of the major Hawaiian islands, which was the selling point for us for our honeymoon, and did not dissapoint. The islands are amazing. We left Philadelphia at 7:30 AM on April 17, 2010 and had a 6 hour flight to Seattle...a layover in Seattle...and then another 6 hour flight to Honolulu. Very long day of traveling was worth it. We started our vacation with 5 full ...

Our only other Carnival cruise was 15 years ago, a 4 day to the Bahamas. Decided to "jump ship" from Royal Caribbean because of price and itinerary. We got 2 more days and one more port for abour $1000 less per person. Didn't know for sure if we would regret it or not. No regrets! The ship is smaller that what we are used to, and the decor seemed dark, but I quickly got used to it. Preferred it ...

Third cruise in two years, 2nd on Carnival. Embarkation was a breeze unlike last two cruises. Luggage was at cabin when finished with lunch on Lido deck. Food was average at buffet entire cruise, not quite hot enough. Cabin was on deck 6, a balcony cabin with sufficient room and clean. Steward was very attentive to freshening cabin and also personable. Entertainment was adequate in theater ...

Embarkation was a breeze, taking less than 20 min. to get through security, receive our room card, and up to the Lido deck for lunch! We had arrived in Honolulu 3 days prior, and stayed at the Ohana Waikiki Beachcomber, a newly renovated hotel located above Macy's Dept Store. The room was cheery, comfortable and reasonably priced ($129 per night) considering it's location on Kalakaua Ave. ...

This was our second cruise, and our second with Carnival. When choosing to cruise again after our Mexican Riviera cruise in Jan 07, I did not consciously pick Carnival, they had the itinerary I was looking for. We wanted a longer than 7 night cruise this time around, so we chose the 12 day Hawaii cruise back to Vancouver, perfect for us as we live in British Columbia. We flew from Vancouver to ...

This is my second cruise. The first was on NCL to Hawaii for 7 days. The only thing about the two cruises that was similar was the price. So we booked two category 11 suites and hoped for the best. We loved the Carnival Spirt and all the nice people who work on that ship. We flew to Honolulu and stayed one night pre-cruise at the Halekulani. If you ever want to go to heaven on earth this is the ...

We flew to Honolulu via WestJet 5 days early, and stayed at the ResortQuest Waikiki Beach Hotel. It was wonderful, complete with a really extensive buffet breakfast each morning. Other than relaxing and some shopping, our 2 main goals for Honolulu were to climb Diamond Head and to snorkel at Hanauma Bay, both of which we did and enjoyed. We didn't rent a car, but used The Bus to go anywhere that ...
