24/5/2016 Just got back from the Carnival Spirit Fiji trip, Isle of Pines, Mystery island, Suva,Port Danarau, Noumea. The best holiday we have ever had. The level of crew professionalism and service is first class, the food and entertainment superb, and the entire experience left us wanting to come back again. 900 crew comprised of over 60 nationalities supporting a passenger group comprising about 2400 means they are serious about looking after you well. We didn't book any shore excursions, preferring to make arrangements when we got there and that worked well. The balcony cabin 8170 was excellent, the views from the balcony were terrific and well worth the extra. We had a minor issue which was responded to by guest services quickly and professionally. Thankyou Carnival, and especially Lloyd the mexican comedy lounge manager, Eli the cruise director, the entertainment ensemble and the musicians who brought such life and fun to the experience. Would I recommend it ? Absolutely. We will be back. 5 stars.

Cabin Review

Extended Balcony
Cabin 8K 8170
The extended balcony view was terrific. It let us see each place as we arrived and left. It let us glimpse the sea rushing by in the middle of the night. We sat out there with champagne and had a place to dry our wet gear. We had a minor issue with deckchair noises from the lido dine in pool area at 5:30am when they repositioned them for the day, We were also directly below the coffee machines which were turned on at the same time and which took a while to boil up water. Guest guest services were prompt, efficient and professional in how it was resolved. The cabin steward Christine did an excellent job. Each night, a Fun sheet was left at your door, telling you what was scheduled for the next day. The TV was excellent. We watched a few movies and the information channels allowed us to catch up on tips from Eli the cruise director about what to do next. Great cabin- worth the extra cost of an extended balcony Airconditioning was bliss. .Luxury.
