Carnival Spirit Cruise Review by KJQLD58

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2018
  • Destination: the South Pacific
  • Cabin Type: Extended Balcony

We were offered a very good deal which included Balcony, airfares and $500 spending money at a travel agents mini expo otherwise we wouldn't have chosen to do this cruise. We found it very relaxing but wouldn't want to be on there during school holidays. Eat in the Dining room for breakfast and dinner, staff were fantastic and very talented - the nightly show in the dining room was sometimes better than the theatre production. Loved the Serenity Bar and over 18 area although the pool was way too small. Ports of call, Noumea - was a Sunday so only the markets open, Mare, lovely looking island, next time would do the bus trip to the beach and Isles of Pines was just gorgeous. Could have laid on that beach all day. Embarkation and Disembarkation was very smooth. We liked all the nooks and crannies to sit and read/drink. Bingo was a huge rip off - never paid out more than $700 in the five games, no jackpots and we figured some days they were taking in over $5000 and the staff while fun were too busy having their private jokes. Rust in the Balcony door made it hard to open. Room was nice, spacious. Only went to one seminar (Eat more lose weight) and a stretching class. Stretching class was good but the seminar was misnamed - should have been how to detox to lose weight. Perhaps I am a cynic. Overall came home relaxed and a bit more tanned.

Cabin Review

Extended Balcony

Spacious cabin towards front of ship, over theatre and near O2 kids area. Neither worried us although older kids did start to run a bit crazy towards the end of the cruise.
