Number of Cruises: 12
Cruise Line: Carnival
Ship: Carnival Spirit
Sailing Date: January 4th, 2005
Itinerary: Mexican Riviera
This cruise was planned as a family reunion, so the criteria for choosing a ship was based on west coast, warm weather, and January. So Carnival Spirit was the only ship that met everything. Boy, what a bad choice!
The only saving grace on
this cruise was that our entire family was onboard. The food was truly
bad, the entertainment was poor, the service was well below acceptable,
and the ports are uninspiring...except for Ixtapa.
We have been on 10+ cruises, on most major lines, and this was by far the most disappointing cruise ever! I have given Carnival 4 chances to prove themselves worthy of our business, and they have failed every time...this being the worst. I am not sure why their quality is so far below the other lines, really...I just don't understand it. If you have already booked, remember that the weather will surely be beautiful, if you have not booked...DON'T! Seriously, I have never written a poor review like this before, but Carnival Spirit will do nothing but break you Spirits.
