Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2018
  • Destination: the Mediterranean

This was our 3 rd ever cruise having sailed before on The Majesty ( Canary Islands) and The Celebration ( Norwegian Fjords ) .

I was looking for a week away and booked an All Inclusive package travelling from Malaga to Menorca ( very nice ) Barcelona ( amazing )Valencia ( nice ) Toulon (nothing special ) Cartagena ( beautifull )

We arrived at the ship very early Sunday morning having spent the night before in Malaga and were very happy and surprised to be allowed to embark by 10am where we were shown to our room , that was ready , and take advantage of the all inclusive .

The first thing you notice about this lovely old ship is the freindliness of the staff ....by the second day most of them remembered our names and were always happy smiling and chatty .

We had an inside cabin on deck 4 with 2 single beds which was not a problem at all , there was plenty of storage space and was extremely clean .Everytime we left our room the cleaners came in and smartened it up , they were amazing and as soon as we told them that the dressing table chair was slightly broken they were very apologetic and had it fixed in no time .

We ate in the Compass Rose most nights ( lovely service and lovely food )

The Lido for breakfast and lunch snacks ( lots of choice and lovely food )

Saw all of the shows in The Broadway Lounge ( amazing talent to rival any west end shows)

Spent time in the Casino ( lots of fun especially on the competition nights).

I seriously can not find fault with The Sprit , she is small and cozy and freindly and they really do make you feel like you are part of their family .

It's a shame that we left it so late to sail on Spirit as she will be leaving the fleet later this year , but I am so happy that we did !

Thanks to everyone who made our trip just fabulous !!
