UK ahoy

Sail Date: August 2013
Destination: Europe - British Isles & Western
Embarkation: Harwich
Booking in process a Harwich is very simple and efficient,you wave good bye to your cases outside the terminal where you pick up your envelope with your boarding cards,go inside and complete a couple forms have your photo taken and that's it. we were in our cabin inless than an hour from arriving [1115]

This was our 4th time on Spirit and 3rd time in a row, so we knew a lot of the crew including the excellent c/d Richard,we were welcomed back by a lot of the staff.the cruise was very good, a good selection of ports and excursions,Geoff Hurst was our guest speaker. The food everywhere was 1st class,even had 2 lamb shanks in the compass rose, where all the waiters especially Sam and Rambo gave us a good dining experience.

The entertainers and singers were top notch as well, putting on some good shows,we sat mostly upstairs in the mezzanine where the lovely Irene served us well always smiling.

Disembarcation was also quite smooth depending how you are going More home you had coloured labels to go on your cases,and then your colour was called out to go off the boat to the terminal where the cases are lined up. Less
