Additional details

Sail Date: Apr 2010

Background Information: Engaged the Carnival Spirit Hawaii trip through a local SLC agency to full fill my wife's dream of visiting Hawaii. This state visit completes our visits to all 50!

Hotel Info: We stayed post cruise at the Mariott on Waikiki. What a wonderful relief from the ship.

Ship Info: The ship was not only dated but worn. Half of the drawer and cabinet handles were broken. The edges of doors and entry ways were worn. Elevator doors were marked with grafitti (on the inside). The ship rocked back and forth when the swells got over four feet. Even though it rained on most of the ocean crossing days, the top cover was never closed to help with the cold. The whirl pools were not heated (colder than the air temp in Hawaii).
