Hi, Just some word of advice, you need to be very careful before you decide to cruise with Carnival. The Spirit is in poor shape, in cabin furniture falling apart, gym equipment not working, mini golf course in tatters, broken doors and glass. Be careful if your intending to bring a bottle of Alcohol along, it was my Wife's birthday and we intended to celebrate on board with a bottle of liquor, this was confiscated and was promised to be given back at the end of the cruise, instead they so called disposed of the bottle. Food is deplorable and un hygienic especially in the buffet areas. Unused food is recycled from day to day. We experienced food that was well passed its use by date, unfit for consumption, we also found foreign objects in our food which the staff found amusing. Food is poorly designed, lacks flavour and is based on quantity rather than quality. Vegetarians will be extremely disappointed, every day the same, tinned vegetables and heavy unhealthy dressings, food is out of refrigeration for far too long. There is not a great deal of entertainment available, very predictable, nothing spectacular, this is very boring especially when you sale at sea for a number of days. Alcohol prices are extremely high, considering they purchase alcohol at duty free prices. Sneaky unethical up selling is rampant, customer care staff don't care. Spa staff are rude and entrap you to buy longer periods or products. Sorry, but you need to know.

Hi,

Just some word of advice, you need to be very careful before you decide to cruise with Carnival. The Spirit is in poor shape, in cabin furniture falling apart, gym equipment not working, mini golf course in tatters, broken doors and glass.
