Carnival Spirit Cruise Review by snowmanx
- Sail Date: January 2011
- Destination: Mexican Riviera
- Cabin Type: Extended Balcony
There were lots of empty beer bottle, glasses and dishes left in the hallways and near the elevator doors. Several passengers wore sleeveless t-shirts, baseball caps and were overweight.
Truthfully, one way to describe cruises to others is by the average age of the passengers. On this cruise I would describe it by the average weight of the passengers, which had to be around 300 lbs.
The few times we ate at the buffets were a real challenge, as we had o stay out of the way of passengers that butted in line, and there were a lot of them.
On his morning show, the cruise director actually said that to maximize your cruise dollars, go thru the buffet line and fill up your try as high as you can, go eat it and come back for more!
The sail-away band, was only 2 musicians and taped drums and backup instruments. Not much fun to sit by the pool and listen to 1/2 a band.
Not all was bad. We has exceptional service at dinner from Raphael and Michael. We sat by a large Hispanic family, about 25 in all, and they were very polite and friendly.
Our room steward did a great job, our room was always cleaned and we rarely saw him - Joe Louis was his name. Also room service was right on time every day.

Cabo San LucasWe stopped at this port for 2 days. One day is plenty for this port. There were 2 other cruise ships there. Our excursion was cancelled, and we found out later that another cruise ship had passengers going on it. That cruise ship must have paid more to book it.View All 1,349 Cabo San Lucas Cruise Port Reviews

La PazNot much to offer here either, lots of police / army soldiers around. We went swimming with a whale shark. Excellent crew, facilities and experience. I would recommend it to everyone.View All 62 La Paz Cruise Port Reviews

MazatlanDid not enjoy this port at all. We met some locals on a walk and found out that 2 passengers from a cruise ship 2 days earlier had been shot at the shopping mall. Not a place I want to go back to!View All 630 Mazatlan Cruise Port Reviews
