Good not Great!

Sail Date: September 2011
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles
My second time on the Spirit,we took this cruise for the price and the ship.

The Good
-Nice ship
-good price for a nine day cruise
-Great steak House
-Clean spacious cabin
-Cabin Crew friendly
-Good overall entertainment

The bad
-Embarkation took almost 2 hours to board.
-Internet very expensive and slow, wasted so many minutes just bringing up the pages.
-The Dining room had poor selection most of the food was the same as the buffet nothing special, I went back to steak house 2 times.
-Dining room crew rushed you through dinner or lunch, too mechanical.
-Dress code was not enforced in dining room not even on elegant nights, most nights people came in with flip flops and shorts, made for an uncomfortable dining experience. Less

Port and Shore Excursions

Best Port on Mexican Riviera cruise, great water sports and swimming.

This Port is a waste! don't bother getting out of the ship! You will be reminded your in a third world country!
