Carnival Spirit — Ship Review Rating: 4.2 out of 5 based on 204 ratings.

Life aboard Carnival Spirit
Carnival Spirit is Carnival’s first ship to be based outside the US, and is based in Sydney, Australia. Cruises of 8 to 12 nights visit the South Pacific islands of Fiji, Vanuatu, and New Caledonia. Three-night ‘taster’ cruises depart Sydney to nowhere from time to time, so you can get away from the office. The Melbourne Cup cruise of 6 nights gives you three days in Melbourne. Occasional 4-night cruises head for Moreton Island and the Tangalooma resort. Carnival Spirit has just returned from a re-fit in Singapore with a giant pool-side movie screen, and new eateries and bars on the lido deck. Adapting to Australian customs when sailing from Sydney, tips are built into the fare.

Carnival Spirit, carrying 2,124 passengers, gives the feel of not being particularly crowded. After its 2015 modifications Spirit offers 25 bars, lounges and dining options, seven of which are new – try the ‘Boomerang Burger’. Created for the Australian market, there are Australian comedians, and Australian currency and power. On top is the world’s steepest vertical drop waterslide at sea, and Camp Ocean Kid’s Club. This “Fun Ship” has a nine-deck-high atrium, onboard golf program, duty-free shopping mall, video arcade, and creative touches such as museum-quality artwork and “designer” martinis. Carnival Spirit has received top marks from past guests for the quality of its entertainment and facilities for families and children. The Night Owls program also offers nightly babysitting between 10 pm and 3am, which is designed as a “fun filled slumber party at sea” (extra charge).

Accommodation
The 20 cabin categories include interior staterooms, ocean view rooms, ocean rooms with French doors (but no balcony), ocean rooms with private balcony, and four grades of suites. Eighty percent of the cabins are outside; 80 percent of those staterooms have private balconies. Each cabin has a gift amenity basket in its bathroom. All staterooms include flat-screen TVs, safe, AC, mini-bar fridge, beach towels, hair dryer, bathrobes to wear during your cruise, and Carnival Comfort Bed with plush mattresses, good quality duvets, linens and pillows. Standard cabins are a good size. Most with twin beds can be converted to king-size bed. Good design and soft lighting add to a feeling of spaciousness in interior staterooms.

All five Suite categories have a large lounge and sleeping area, large bathroom with twin wash basins, and whirlpool bathtub. The best suites and cabins are those on the aft-facing decks. The 6 Grand Suites mid-ships are largest in area. Suites qualify for priority check-in at port. Some cabins can accommodate a third and fourth person, and most cabin categories are fitted with inter-connecting doors to suit families. There are no single cabins, and 16 wheelchair-accessible cabins. A room service menu is available 24-hours, for a small charge.

Food and Dining
The ship has a single two-deck dining room – the Empire Restaurant – with a choice of fixed-time dining at two seatings, or flexible “Your Time Dining”. Dining assignments can be booked before the cruise. Allow for one or two nights “Dress Elegant”. Menus change daily and service is excellent. Breakfast and lunch are open seating. The La Playa Grille Lido Restaurant is an extensive casual eatery, with sections that include small buffet counters, salad counters, a dessert counter, a 24-hour pizzeria, ice cream/frozen yoghurt station, and deli. From August 2015 BlueIguana Cantina Mexican eatery adds to specialty dining options, and Alchemy Bar for premium spirits and cocktails.

The Nouveau Restaurant (dress up, reservations only, cover charge), for steak and seafood with your selected wine, is a superb fine-dining experience not to be missed. There is a poolside grill Fat Jimmy’s C-side BBQ that offers burgers, hot dogs and the like. Hot coffee is available at drinks stations throughout at no cost, but the offerings at the specialty coffee and patisserie European-Style Café are tempting. The Chef’s Table (for 12, reserved, pay) takes you on a galley tour, then fine cuisine. Drinks are available at 16 bars. The ship offers 24-hour room service, ranging from basic continental-style breakfast fare to a variety of sandwiches and desserts.

Entertainment
There is something for everyone. Pharaoh’s Palace Show Lounge spanning three decks presents large production shows and cabaret acts backed by a live show band. There’s an alternative show lounge, Versailles Lounge, on the lowest deck. Night is the time for late buffet snacks, R-rated comedy, and lounges and bars to suit every mood, many of which feature live music. Try the popular Shanghai Piano Bar for sing along with the piano. From August 2015 there’s a poolside giant screen and new adjoining eateries.

Daytime activities include the customary art auctions, karaoke, Hasbro The Game Show, ballroom dancing, comedians, bingo, library and Internet café. Adults have the large action-packed Louis XIV Casino. For adults, an open-air deck called Serenity will have a child-free pool, spas, sun lounges and a bar. Take an aerobics class, work out in the gym, refresh with a beauty treatment and massage. There’s a mini-golf course, jogging track, and deck games. Teens enjoy their own parties and movies at Club O2, junior teens at Circle “C”, and pre-teens at Camp Carnival. Entertainment extends to the humungous WaterWorks slides and pools. Late-night child care is available for a charge.
