Carnival Spirit Reviews
Prepare yourself for a thrilling journey abroad when you board the Carnival Spirit cruise ship. This luxury liner, built in 2001 and refurbished in 2012, is 963 feet long and weighs in at over 85,000 tons. Within this impressive sea craft is more fun than you can shake a stick at, and Carnival staffs its boats with courteous and professional crew members to ensure your sea-fairing experience is one you’ll always want to remember. Just like any Carnival cruise ship, Spirit is home to numerous bars and lounges, cafes and restaurants. The Champions’ Sports Bar is the perfect place to enjoy the game while you sip on a cold one, and the dance club will let you get your groove on. Play the slots at Louis XIV Casino, or head on over to the ice cream parlor for your favorite flavor!
When it’s time to regroup, hang out in the Pharaoh’s Palace main lounge, then travel through The Jungle Interior Promenade. For group gatherings, there’s a convenient conference room available, or meet up with friends in Versailles Lounge. Want to get a good workout? You can take an aerobics class, workout on new gym equipment, or get pampered with soothing treatments and massages. Ladies can try out a new hairstyle, while the men on-board can have the ultimate shave, all at Spa Carnival.
If you’re looking for a romantic time, head to Deck 3 where you can rent your formalwear and then head into the on-board wedding chapel to get married to that special someone! For the honeymoon, you can take in some live music at Club Cool Jazz Club or the Shanghai Piano Bar. Don’t forget to go swimming at the water park while you’re on your cruise, because Spirit recently had installed the steepest waterslide at sea, known as Green Thunder. Everyone has a blast on Carnival’s Spirit cruise, so be sure not to miss this fantastic oceanic excursion.
