This is the floating resort that ushered in the Spirit-class ships with innovations such as the two-level promenade and the reservations-only supper club. She is nearly the length of three football fields and stands twelve decks tall – that’s a lot of ship! Her greater speed — and the fact that eighty percent of her cabins are outward-facing, and of those, the majority have balconies — make Carnival Spirit the perfect ship for special or longer vacations.
Carnival Spirit’s interior decoration really is something else. Many different cultures are reflected around the ship in Carnival Spirit’s different lounges, restaurants and show venues. Some of the notable 6 onboard bars and lounges are: the deep red Oriental-themed bar, with its pagoda-style ceiling and delicate woodwork lattices, the sports bar with its seats and tables camouflaged as different types of sporting balls, the Egyptian lounge with a piano for a bar, and then the chintzy piano bars with marble furnishings, grandiose sweeping staircases and plush leather seats. Some rooms also allude to African climates, with bamboo chairs and walls, palm leaf ceilings, and 3D depictions of African wildlife jutting out from the walls. The Egyptian-themed theatre is also spectacular, with its gigantic sarcophaguses lining the walls and traditional embellishments. One thing is for certain on the Carnival Spirit – every room you walk into will demand your attention for one reason or another.
