Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

We traveled as a family w/ 4 children-7 yrs to 16 yrs. Their kids program was great, the kids couldn't wait to go to them and the staff was excellent. The freestyle cruising was great because it did not restrict our schedule. The wait to eat in the main resturants was unacceptable 1 hour so we had to eat at the buffet alot. The food was good but a nice restaurant would have been better than the buffet 5 out of the 6 nights. We've cruised many times before and overall it was good but the ship did seem very crowded for the size.

Pros: The kids program and freestyle meals

Cons: The wait to eat in the main restaurants

Food and Dining
The food was good but the wait was to long for the main restaurants.
Service and Staff
I've been on other cruises where the staff was friendlier. On the Spirit they just appeared to be doing there job and that was it. That can make the whole difference in a trip.
Ship Quality
The ship was very nice and spaciously layed out. The kids pool had more room than the main pool area to lay out.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a balcony room and an interior room, both clean and comfortable. The size it what you would expect for a ship.
Children's Programs
I give the children's program the highest marks. The kids LOVED it. The staff was incredibly nice and they had the best attitudes. My kids could not wait to go.
Activities are what you would expect on a ship-a lot of them. Something for everyone. The casino was great, comedy shows, etc.
Nassau, Bahamas
I felt like we were being attacked. Hordes of people waiting for you to get off the ship and selling you this, and wanting to drive you here, too much!
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
The best part of the trip. You must snorkel, lay on a raft, and enjoy the beauty of nature.
