Sail Date: Aug 2015
Cabin: Extended Balcony

As indicated in previous reviews about the Spirit cruise from Singapore to Sydney - complete debarcle on embarkation at Singapore - due to partial re-fit and late arrival of boat to dock. Carnival's initial use of this cruise terminal and obvious lack of pre-planning or preparation on scoping the venue and available facilities for video/audio communication (was none), suitable seating and failure to utilise available technology such as text/email to forewarn passengers of expected delays. Extremely poor management of issue on site and exposure of aged/infirm/very young to health/safety risks through long embarkation process.

After boarding subjected same passengers to further distress/discomfort with safety drill out on open deck in high temperatures.

After finally setting sale it was obvious the vessel had not been commissioned properly after work was done with passengers reporting numerous issues; toilets; cleanliness; flooding; no hot water etc litany of issues.

Cabin Review

Extended Balcony

good sized cabin with extended balcony on the forward area of the ship.

very noisy balcony partition that was unsecured throughout the trip - constant rattle/banging when cruising.

Shower good and cleanliness/servicing also very good.

No hot water for a number of days.

In room entertainment - substandard. (tv/movie channels)
