Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2017
  • Destination: the South Pacific
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

Our travel agent suggested we cruise with Carnival Australia and are we pleased we did.

Transfer from sydney airport circular key was great , met by a friendly lady from Carnival at airport after she was happy that we had all our baggage we were transported ship.Saved ourselves a bundle using there service rather than a taxi.

Embarkation went really smooth and took about 20minutes and as we had a 12.30 to 1300 check in time slot we had time to explore our new home..

We were advised by check in staff that there would be 1 hour delay befor our cabin was ready wich was fine with us as we were peckish so decided to seek out some lunch on Lido Buffet deck 9 which had just opend.

After reading a few gripes about the food maybe some of the critics need to be realistic..

The Food and choices for lunch in the Lido buffet was "Outstanding" . What a gereat start and we were still in port.

We had decided to spoil ourslves and get a Balcony cabin 4158 on the main deck and it was woth every cent..As per brochure..

We went to the Empire restaurant for dinner and the service food and general running was absolutely first class.

Numerous choice of food available in all eating places .AND SO CLEAN

If you like bautifull food served by happy people and being well looked after you will love this ship..

Entertainment on board in tth Pharrohs Palace was excellent with a differant show each night

Numerous places to go for a drink depending on your tastes .

Had a wee plaly in the casino but was not my night allgood.

Lots and lots of things to do on sea days with organised things happening around the ship

Shore excursions well organised interesting

Our room steward Sabina kept us well informed and couldn't do enough for us .so Be Generous at the tail end.

We had portaits taken by "Donald the photographer from India" and wow it was money well spent much cheaper than a studio sitting on land,

Ask for Donald l from India if you are wanting specilal moments

All the staff on the Carnival Spirit are absolutely Marvelous so remember To reward there efforts to make your cruise as good as ors

Can't say enough about this cruise ,would we do it again YES YES YES.
