Our 7-day cruise to the Western Caribbean was absolutely fabulous: The Crew went to great length to serve us and never failed to bring a smile on our faces. The food was delicious and the only problem we had with it was the difficult choices you have to make when studying the menu (and the pounds we gained!). We had dinner at the Windows MDR and never had any trouble getting a table even though we mostly did not make any reservations ahead. The morning buffet was good and the chocolate buffet simply delicious.
The weather was very nice with a smooth crossing across the Gulf and temperatures from the lower 60s on sea days to the mid 80s in port. Plenty of deck chairs to be found - make sure to check out the area next to the children's pool or at both sides of the chimney, too, if you do not want to be at the pool all the time.
We had a blast with our Cruise Critic friends who made this our best cruise ever.
The only thing which was sub-standard compared to our previous cruises would be the layout and beds in the cabin: As there is only one bunk bed in the cabins, one of our two children had to sleep on a bed on the floor between the lower two beds. This made the cabin seem rather crammed once the beds had been made, and those sleeping in the lower beds had trouble getting in and out of bed without stepping on the person sleeping on the floor.
All in all, we loved our cruise onboard the Spirit and would go back tomorrow if we could.
