Carnival Spirit - Western Caribbean

Sail Date: March 2004
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami
Hello fellow cruisers: After a long winter in Toronto we were really looking forward to taking our long awaited vacation. We finally drove down to Miami florida, we parked our van at the pier parking, Unfortunately we had to pay cash as the credit card machines were not available.

The embarkation procedure was very good also we did arrive at noon for our 4 p.m. departure.

The ship was absolutely fantastic, super clean and very big with a beautiful atrium. After checking out the ship with my wife we headed to the lido deck for some lunch, and guess what the food was great they had pizza and various other meals such as Deli, burgers etc. The first supper was great beautiful dining room and great service and what can we say about the food it was great. Those so called professional critics can moan all they want about the food not being like some stuffy restaurant they're use to, but the food and service was excellent every night. P.S. the same applies to the More entertainment.

This particular cruise went to Belize,the cave tubing was great but there was not much in the souvenir dept. Next port was Costa-Rica which was very beautiful, here we went to the Sloth sanctuary good tour much better souvenirs, such as coffee, wood work. Panama was our last port country was dirty but the tours were good and duty free even better. Less
