Review summary

Very enjoyable cruise on an older, but well maintained ship. Everything in our suite was operational. The Spirit is a little faster than most ships (24 knot maximum), so cruising at 20+ knots on long passages was quiet and vibration free in 10512. The ship was clean and we did not notice any unpleasant odors.

Embarkation was prompt and efficient. We were in Suite 10512, so we were escorted to Cagney's for food and drink.

We enjoyed the retro, Asian design. The ship is well maintained and clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The Suite was great! Separate living and bed rooms with individual thermostats that worked well. In spite of the fact that we traveled in some 50+ knot headwinds with 16 foot swells, we were confortable. In regular sea conditions, the suite was quiet and vibration free.

Ports of call

Casablanca, Morocco

Very enjoyable excursion; highlights of Casablana and Hassan II Mosque. The market and olive market were interesting. Tour guide was excellent. Recommend excursion with guide instead of "on your own".
