If you're looking for "The Fun Ship" I guess this might be it; but if you're looking for more nature and wildlife exposure, the Spirit is a bit lacking in that.
The large ship and passenger load was easier to live with than we expected - they do handle the crowds very well. The food and dining choices were excellent and the service staff was marvelous.

Ports of Call
Don't Miss: salmon creek near piers
Don't Miss: Mendenhall glacier and visitor center
Don't Miss: had no chance to explore, but the eagles nesting on the land side of the ship were fun to watch!
Pros: The cabin and dining room service was wonderful -- especially the creative surprises left by the cabin staff in the evenings!
Cons: Too much marketing of excursions and shopping; not enough naturalist sessions.
