Carnival Spirit

Cruise-loving vacationers can now sail to Alaska, Hawaii and the Caribbean aboard a revolutionary new class of ship: the fantastic 88,500-ton Carnival Spirit. Not only is this 2,124-passenger superliner one of the longest ships in Carnival’s fleet but, thanks to a unique propulsion system, she is also one of the fastest. Moreover, she’ll have the largest percentage of outside staterooms of any cruise ship. 80% of her staterooms will have ocean views and, of those, 80% will have private balconies. To further dazzle guests are an 11-story grand atrium and a two-story indoor/outdoor promenade with clubs, lounges, an Egyptian-designed showroom, a ship-wide casino, a conference center, wedding chapel, and boulevard of fashionable shops. Another outstanding feature is her two-level Nautica Spa®, with its state-of-the-art fitness center, ocean-view steam rooms and saunas, and European-style spa offering the latest health and beauty treatments.

Carnival Spirit will also represent the epitome of Carnival’s Total Choice Dining program, which offers guests greater flexibility of dining hours, settings, and mode of dress. Restaurants will include the two-story formal dining room (with incredible views on three sides) and the casual indoor/outdoor Lido Deck dining room (where the 24-hour pizzeria is also located). A new dining option will also debut on this remarkable ship: the reservations-only supper club located beneath the ship’s expansive red glass dome. For fun in the sun, this ship features wide decks, a choice of four pools (including one with a retractable dome) and a Sports Deck jogging track. Kids from tots to teens will love the activities of Camp Carnival, which is headquartered in the ship’s aptly named Fun House.

Carnival emphasizes casual dress during the day, and most evenings also enforce this “cruise casual” dress. However, a few nights may require a more refined approach to dress—this is categorized as “Cruise Elegance.” This may include cocktail dresses and pantsuits for women and dress slacks and shirts for men.
