FABULOUS 15-day cruise to Hawaii on the Carnival Spirit!

My wife and I (56 & 55) recently returned from the 15-day, roundtrip cruise to Hawaii aboard the Carnival Spirit. It was the BEST cruise we've ever taken! Despite the cold and windy weather going to and from the islands, I can't think of anything at all to complain about. We flew from Cincinnati to San Diego two days prior to the cruise, mainly to allow for jet lag to settle in and to explore a ...

We just returned from a 15 day cruise on the Spirit to Hawaii and as expected, had a great time! Carnival continues to live up to its reputation by offering a great cruising experience at a reasonable price. Embarkation/Debarkation No complaints in this category. It is important to be patient and understanding because the cruise line is trying to load/unload over 2,100 passengers and ...

We've been home a week now and I finally (kinda) have time to write a review. I am so thankful for all the reviews I have read, I wanted to give back a little.DH & I are from Columbia, SC. On 4/10/12, we started our vacation off wrong by oversleeping! I think neither of us could sleep the night before like it was Christmas Eve. We had a flight out of Charlotte at 7:50 am. We had plans for someone ...

Where should I start? First, I want to say this is MY review and ONLY my account will be in it. Nobody else had any input or review of it so if it is badly written it is all my fault. This cruise was memorable to say the least. I will start with kudos to our wonderful "hostess" Amy, our Cruise Critic leader. She was on top of stuff and was/is the spark plug that made things seem to come together. ...

A cruise could not have seemed so us, but after the first 4 hours on board that all changed. We were scheduled to leave San Diego at 4 heading to 5 Hawaian Islands 15 day cruise this was a dream (I thought). We did not leave at 4 but at 10:30pm at 8 they were still loading food and the luggage. This of course put us way behind schedule so they had to go much faster then they would have and with ...

I would like to critique my experience on my first Carnival on Carnival Spirit to Paridise or so I thought. It was one incident after another, with Carnival Cruise line. Let me add that we have taken several cruises on Princess, Royal Caribbean, MSC Cruise line. I have never experienced, the unacceptable operations, planning and initial service this ship displayed. My first experience with ...

Ok, my only cruising experience before this was 20 years ago on the old norway so i dont have a lot of foundation to compare this trip to. The upsetting things to me, would probably be far more upsetting to those of you that have more experience on cruise lines. And the truth is I'm coming from this from a different perspective then many readers. So a little background. im a single 42 year old ...

15 days of a Circus

This was the most disorganized cruise we have ever been on. This was our 6th cruise and definitely the most disorganized. It seems you don't care (Carnival) you have our money. This was our first Carnival cruise and it was more like a Circus than a Carnival cruise, it was not ready to disembark. Let me begin: Departure what a joke! 4-5 hrs to get on the boat while we watched the Holland America ...

Disappointed in the Entertainment and Smoking aboard ship

The shows were not impressive, spectacular or worth watching like some cruise ships we've been on. I think I only stayed to watch one all the way through and I walked out on all the others that I went to see. I do not appreciate seeing girls and guys touching each other seductively on stage. To us, that is NOT entertainment. The skimpy outfits that exploit the women, to me, is not in good ...

Read this if you plan to take Hawaii 15 night cruise aboard Carnival Spirit!! While we enjoy reading reviews prior to our bookings,for many reasons, this cruise did not have any reviews for us to work from, and we would have booked elsewhere and not wasted the money. So here are a few pointers if you too decide the price is too good to be true!!! - 15 nights typically means a general age ...
