This was our first cruise with Carnival. We chose this cruise to celebrate our wedding anniversary and my wife's birthday. We were very happy with the choice for the following reasons * value for money * friendly and enthusiastic staff throughout the ship * fantastic dining experience in the Empire Restaurant with good quality food, correct and friendly service and amazing entertainment by staff * comfortable, well appointed cabin * relaxing Serenity adults only area * smooth embarkation, disembarkation and shore excursion processes * good quality evening entertainment - not outstanding but pretty good as part of the overall experience. * clean and well maintained public areas * not only the acknowledgement of our special occasions by staff but the genuine joy in helping us celebrate * the efforts to cater for children. There were a number of children on the cruise but as elderly guests we were able to avoid them Really our only complaint was the expectation to pay for room service meals that were available free elsewhere on the ship. In summary the Carnival Spirit is marketed as a "fun ship". This is exactly what you get in spades.

Great Overall Experience

Cabin Review

Cabin 5186
Cabin was very spacious, spotlessly clean and comfortable. The bed was great. The cabin service was excellent. The mid ship location was convenient. Although this was an obstructed view cabin the view was only limited downwards due to lifeboats. The view outwards from the room and balcony was fine.
