Great time to go

May was a great month to cruise, not to hot, not to cold.....the Spirit was a nice size ship.   It is an older ship and not as many passengers as the newest ships out there.    Second time for this itinerary.    It is a misprint about two days in only have the day you board.   You leave at 1 was ok, nothing special.   Better meals at the finer restaurants on board,but not worth the extra money per person......ship excursions very expensive.    Better to go with outside agencies, much cheaper and basically the same tours.
