Carnival Spirittravel tips

Life On Board

The Carnival Spirit is the ship for you if you are looking for a fun cruise holiday close to home. Get on board and sail to the South Pacific, around Australia and to Papua New Guinea. Most of the local cruises depart from Brisbane.

On board, you are most likely to meet families with kids, especially during school holidays. Carnival is a brand that prides itself on being a family-oriented cruise line. The ship does feature an adults-only retreat, which is great for getting away and having some quiet time.

Onboard boutiques offer great shopping tax- and duty-free. You can get stocked up on designer accessories, top clothing brands, fine jewellery, watches and liquor.


There is a standard variety of accommodation on board the Carnival Spirit, you’ll be able to choose between Inside, Outside and Balcony Cabins or go all out and book a beautiful Suite, that is full of extra amenities and other benefits. Whatever category you select, there will be all you may need on a cruise: air-conditioning, safe, great linens, TV, plenty of storage space and a dedicated room steward. If you are looking to enjoy spectacular views of the ocean or the destinations you are visiting from the comfort of your own space, book an Outside or a Balcony Cabin. Suite guests enjoy priority check-in and disembarkation at all ports, plus Main Dining Room time assignment.

Food & Drink

The ship offers a huge variety of dining options, the assortment of different cuisines is astonishing. Here are just some eateries that are included in the price of your cruise: Guy’s Burger Joint and BlueIguana Cantina, Pizza Pirate and the Lido Marketplace, Seaday Brunch and the Carnival Deli. Special diets and kids’ menus are also catered for at no extra charge.

If you feel like spoiling yourself, go with one of the specialty options. Check out the Steakhouse Restaurant or the Seafood Shack, Bonsai Sushi or the Chef’s Table that features a private tour of the kitchen. Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast is fantastic for the whole family. Room service is available 24 hours a day and comes at an extra cost.


There is a great plethora of amazing activities and entertainment options on the Carnival Spirit to satisfy every member of the family. There is the famous Carnival WaterWorks, a state-of-the-art water park for young and old, it features thrilling slides, plenty of swimming pools, whirlpools and much more. Enjoy a game of golf or Bingo, try your luck at the Casino, or take part in a mixologist competition. Music is available throughout the ship all day long, be it mind-blowing stage shows, piano pieces at the bar, karaoke, theme parties or nightclubs. You can learn all about art with the onboard art seminars, auctions and classes or get some beautiful professional photos for your family album at the Dreams Studio.

Health & Fitness

Any holiday, and a cruise holiday in particular, is a great opportunity to start (or continue) a fitness routine. The Carnival Spirit features a great range of sports and wellness facilities, like a well-equipped gym with professional trainers and fitness classes like yoga, Pilates and boot camp, a jogging track and a basketball court.

Relaxing and taking care of yourself is part of wellbeing and is well provided for. Enjoy some adult-only time at the Serenity Retreat, go for a revitalizing facial and a relaxing massage at the Spa Carnival or discover the onboard thermal suite and thalassotherapy pool. Let your hair and nails be taken care of at the Beauty Salon.

Cruising with Children

There is so much for the kids to have a blast: the Carnival WaterWorks water park with the Twister Waterslide and more, mini-golf, the Towel Animal Theatre, the Mad Hatter’s High Tea, the Cherry on Top lolly shop and the Seuss-a-palooza Parade will all make sure there is not a dull moment on board. Plus, there are age-appropriate kids’ clubs that will keep them occupied, they are all included in the price and are staffed with enthusiastic professional child carers. Parents looking to enjoy a night out dancing or watching a late night comedy show, can (for a nominal fee) bring their 11 and under-year-olds to the Night Owls, where kids will be entertained and looked after until 12am.
