This was our (wife and I) first cruise ever. We live in San Diego and thought that it would be very simple and fun to just drive down to the cruise ship terminal, park across the street and go....which we did. We took the 8 night Mexican ... Read more

By far the best cruise I have ever been on and this is my 4th. Makes me want to go on the Alaska and Hawaii one on this same ship when they have them. As long as they have the same employees I'll be a happy camper. The employees on the ... Read more

We traveled as a group of 6 with 3 cabins 8103, 8107 and 4192. Everyone had a great time. After reading the last couple of reviews here it is hard to believe we were on the same ship. I found the Spirit to be a beautiful ship, I also ... Read more

The ship was clean and very nice. The decor was really intense, like a major Las Vegas Color explosion. A bit too many things mixed together for us. I guess tasteful does not fit. The shows on the Spirit were very good. A wide variety of ... Read more

Had a great cruise out of San Diego, but it demonstrated why you must give yourself a LOOONNG lead time for your flights out. Our ship arrived 6 hours late into San Diego because of fog. I can only imagine the scrambling that went on among ... Read more

Returning to a ship for a second cruise is a strong reaffirmation that the first voyage went swimmingly--as in great snorkeling, wonderfully prepared fish, and a smooth voyage by an Italian captain who never takes himself too seriously and ... Read more
