Default Carnival Spirit Mexico Cruise 2/21/05 - Our First Cruise!


My partner Jonathan and I will be on the Carnival Spirit departing San Diego on 2/21/05. If anyone has been on this cruise and would like to share some tips/pointers, please do so. How are the staterooms?. We've booked a CAT 9A which looks roomy (for a cruise ship). Also interested in Port recommendations.

Or, if you will be joining us on the cruise, let me know and we'll meet you for a drink onboard.

Really looking forward to getting away....wish it was now!

Hi guys, My partner and I were on the Spirit last year for the 8nt Western Caribbean. She is a beautiful ship. We were in 4424 Balcony cabin, small but fine. Tried sleeping out on the balcony at night but the sea salt spray was too much. Hope you have a great time.
E-mail me if you have any other ?'s. We are cruising Norwegian Spirit on 2/13/05. Can't hardly wait.

Brian, great ship and great itinerary!

Here are links to galleries I posted when we went in 2003:

Ship photos:


Port photos:


The 9A should be great ... though it's hard to find photos of 'em because they are so few on board. We had a standard balcony which was quite comfy.

A couple tips for the Spirit:

* Ask your cabin steward to unlock and empty the mini-bar so you can use it.

* They have a goodie basket in the bathroom with razors, Tums, etc.

* DO book an excursion in Acapulco ... numerous people post here that the sales people and taxi cabs are very aggressive there.

For port info, go over to the Mexico board here under Destinations (I moderate it) and you will find lots of info.

Fantastic ports!

Hello B & J, I will be joining you on Carnival Spirit out of San Diego on 21 Feb. Welcome to the wonderful world. I made my virgin cruise to the Mexican Riviera two years ago and this cruise will be my fourth return to these Mexican ports. If you have any specific question please feel free to drop me an email. I will try to answer and also send along a picture so we might meet up onboard. Cheers, Ron, AKA, Rocky
