Default carnival new ship SPIRIT

We have booked a criuse onCarnival's newesr Ship. The yet to be launched Spirit.
Can any one give us some ideae as to what we are in for. According to the publicity , this is an entirely new type of ship at 83,000 tons abd 930 ft. long. We are taking the inaugeral sailing for 16 days through the panama cannal. The Carnival web site does not even have a real photp of the ship posted yet. Should i be concerned ,or is Carnival of a solid reputation.? This is also our first attempt at cruising. Help!!!

For an idea of general info on the Spirit, check out reviews and pictures of the new Costa Atlantica ( which is sailing already).
They're both built from the same basic design, and most differences will be in the interiors.
16 day sailing for a first cruise? U do jump in when U jump <G>
I was going on that sailing myself of Spirit myself but had a scheduling conflict, and had to change plans.
U should have a WONDERFUL time!
Regards,
Kuki

Hi Dave,

I took my first Carnival cruise in September on the new ship Victory. Just to let you know I've been cruising since 1958 and look forward to every single one of them the way I always have. I was very impressed with 'Victory. Not everything about the ship's design thrilled me, but what counted, my cabin, was beautiful, big and very comfortable. What impressed me was the attitude of the crew. They were absolutely wonderful.I never encountered anyone onboard that wasn't extremely helpful and very friendly. Clearly, they were all devoted to the idea of giving us all a wonderful cruise and they succeeded. The food was just fine, just don't eat the gumbo or the beef wellington. The food in the alternative dining room was great for lunch and dinner but too crowded for a hot meal for breakfast. Since the dining room was open for a full hot breakfast, that didn't matter. We had a chinese restaurant and a deli onboard as well as a barbecue/grill, a pizzeria and soft serve ice cream pretty much whenever you wanted it. The entertainment is wonderful. Our cruise director Corey Schmidt was hilarious, had us all in stitches. You are in for a wonderful time, enjoy!

Carole

Hi Dave. Myself, my husband and 5 other couples will be sailing with you on the Spirit. I agree with Kuki, when you jump in .... you jump in. However, if you want to relax, have fun, see different places, AND do whatever else YOU want to do...then cruising should be right up your alley. Be sure and post on the "Meet me on Board" section of cruisemates! Carnival did send me the cabin dimensions, balcony dimensions and amenities of the Spirit. If you are interested, I would be happy to share them with you.
