Much better than I expected based on the reviews
"No one should go hungry and the food is as good as on any cruise ship.Getting on board was smooth sailing (no pun intended) and the back to back process, while longer than usual due to waiting for everyone to get off the ship, went smoothly as well...."Read More

Holiday Spirit on the Spirit

Review for Carnival Spirit to Caribbean - Southern

If I had one phrase to describe my trip on the Carnival Spirit, I would say "so-so." Overall, I would say that if you are traveling with kids, this is certainly not the ship I would spend my money on. Also, if you want solid entertainment and engaging and fun activities throughout the day, this is also not the ship for you. I will break this review up into parts so it's easier to read for those of ...

The Spirit is an older ship and a smaller ship than the new ships being produced these days. I enjoyed the ship and never felt like I was living in the past. The decor in places is odd, to say the least, but something I got over in about 10 minutes. The only places it really was obvious was the main theatre done in an Egyptian motif and an inside walkway/lounge around the front of the ship that ...

Cabin 5231 Jay our room steward very nice and did a great job. Room ok but both of us hit tv shelf with head ouch. Thermostat difficult. Cabin Door very very heavy. Nice bathroom, good counter and ...

We to cruise in early Dec to relax between the holidays. This cruise was a quiet and peaceful trip as they normally are for us this time of year. Food was good everywhere we ate and we enjoyed the new to us Chopsticks. Only one slow night in MDR, first formal night, which can be expected. The service was good everywhere onboard esp. our stateroom attendant . Only complaint we heard was about the ...

First cruise after Covid was a learning experience

Itinerary, excursions and service were wonderful. The cruise was worth every penny but there were some issues. Cruises on carnival in the past featured high quality food and great social times in the main dining room. Post Covid, apparently very few people sit with other guests in the main dining room. Best food, therefore, was being offered in the buffet, steakhouse, chefs table, blue ...

A few not so good things, but overall everything was good.

We decided on this cruise because it was going to Puerto Rico (one of our favorites) and we had never been to Grand Turk. We enjoyed our wait and housekeeping staff as they were all very friendly and helpful. Very much enjoyed the rock shows and the getaway island show. Comedians were so/so. Movie nights were nice with a great selection of movies. The one thing that really bothered us is they ...

We cruise every Halloween (and then some) and can always find something to eat that is different and nice. Not this time. We are easy to please, but....this was bad. I heard so many people making the same comments that I am leaving here, it was a common theme! The bad: The food was not good The "buffet" was extremely limited - and recycled. I know its a small ship but having 5 items is just ...

Sewerage smells - no staff - terrible entertainment and a ship that needs to go into drydock now!

We originally booked this cruise for a group of 10 pre covid that was rescheduled 4 times. We were traveling from literally all over the world and were supposed to be on Carnival Freedom but Carnival changed our ship about 3 moths prior to the cruise. We had last sailed on spirit in Australia in December 2019 and enjoyed the ship/entertainment and crew, but unfortunately it appears that ...

As a Diamond cruiser with Carnival this was the Worse Cruise ever

Do not cruise this ship. Did the 8 day East Caribbean cruise. Bad communication and terrible Customer service overall. The HUB stinks. It did not work all the time. You have to rely on the HUB and it does not have everything you need on it. If you are Diamond, good Luck getting information. It"s not there. There were very few activities during sea days. Very boring ship even in ...

Disappointing

Review for Carnival Spirit to Alaska

We enjoy taking the end of the season cruises. Usually the crowds aren't as large and the temperature is nice. We have been on several cruise lines and have always preferred Carnival. But, our recent cruise to Alaska was very disappointing. CARNIVAL HUB APPLICATION: This application is frustrating to use. I could not stay connected to the Wi-Fi, and had to log in each time to use it. ...
