Relaxing cruise to the Western Caribbean
Destination: Western Caribbean
Embarkation: New Orleans
We have been on several cruises. The Spirit is one of the most beautiful ships we have been on. It is not one of the huge ships and that appealed to us. The food ranged from excellent to just okay. It really depends on what you order. Don't miss the bread pudding on the evening menu or the strawberry shortcake at lunch in Windows. The New York steak on the menu tended to be pretty tough even when More medium rare. No one was in danger of starving. We did not try any of the specialty restaurants since we figured we could spend that money on shore. The service in Windows was very good, not so good in the Garden Room, the one night we tried it.
We didn't book excursions with the ship, choosing to find what was available after we docked.
The entertainment on the Spirit was great. Our favorites were Emily and Arvin a duo you can check out on youtube and the comedian, David Naster. Other reviews have mentioned the smoke in the casino. I didn't find it to be as bad as some people said and since I ended up $400, I wasn't complaining.
There was no doubt that we got our money's worth on this cruise. New Orleans is a great port city, especially since the ship docks within walking distance of the French Quarter. There is a cable car that runs from Julia St. to the quarter if you don't want to walk. Less

The pole in the middle of the room was an unwelcome surprise but we got used to it. The location was great.Read All Inside (IX) Reviews >>
