Carnival Spirit deck plan changes 2018 refurbishment review

During the ship's drydock in 2018 (May-June, in Singapore) were upgraded the entertainment (available at new clubs for youth activities - kids-only arts-crafts area ("SoulPlay") and teens-only area ("Warehouse Arcade").

Other changes included:

  • redesigned retail area - new duty-free shopping brands - Clinique, Lacoste, Quay Australia, Seafolly, Swarovski, Swatch
  • redesigned Photo Gallery - Pixels Digital Photo Gallery - upgraded kiosk allowing passengers to view then purchase photos through smartphones and iPads
  • updated Fitness Centre (latest training equipment)

In 2022 February, Carnival Spirit was drydocked in Dubai UAE, mainly for general maintenance works, as well as for changing the old livery with the fleet's new one (blue-red-white).

In 2017, on the Australia-based Carnival Spirit was introduced new kids programming that includes new onboard activities, games, themed parties.

  • On the ship were introduced an inflatable bocce court and giant-sized board games (Cranium, Trivial Pursuit, Guess Who).
  • Another 2017 addition is the Cluedo (aka Clue) murder mystery game that is a group activity involving 2-6 players. At the beginning of each cruise, costumed characters present their alibis, and the players attempt to solve the crime mystery through clues given to them throughout the cruise.
  • New themed entertainment events are the shows "80s Rock" (music-themed), "Glow Night" (fashion-themed) and "Lip Sync Battle" (a musical competition involving choreography, costumes, and stage sets).

"Carnival Hub" app

In 2016, Carnival Australia introduced on Carnival Spirit the "Carnival Hub" app. It provides information on the ship's daily scheduled activities onboard ("Fun Times" newsletter). Among the app's functions are:

  • "favorites" - passengers can bookmark the events they like (shows, promotions, etc)
  • real-time onboard account balance checking
  • reminder for attending chosen events
  • making onboard reservations and bookings (spa, dining/specialty restaurants, lounges, etc)
  • current itinerary information (ports of call, searchable deck plans / with highlighted attractions)
  • The Carnival Hub app (costs AUD 9) also has a "chat" function for connecting with your family and friends on the ship. The function automatically adds to a contact list all passengers traveling together. The unique ID number allows adding new friends to chat contacts.
  • Booked passengers can download "Carnival Hub" online (for free), set up a profile, enter the next cruise date of departure, and the app starts to countdown. The app can also be downloaded while on the ship (for free).
  • The ship's "Fun Times" newsletter on paper is also available but in a reduced-size format. This, along with the Carnival Hub's introduction results in around 50% reduction in paper usage.

Cruise ship Internet

In May 2016, Carnival Australia introduced faster and cheaper internet and social media Internet packages on the Australia-based ships Carnival Legend and Carnival Spirit. The improved internet access offers increased bandwidth and speed.

  • The value package (costs AUD 30 per day) offers unlimited Internet.
  • The (faster) premium package (cost AUD 50 per day) allows passengers to make Skype video calls.
  • The new "social media package" (cost AUD 15 per day) offers unlimited access to Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter.
