We got back from our first cruise Feb. 26th off the Spirit. Debarkation was a breeze! It was nothing like I expected. Embarkation was a pain but its because we didnt have a clue what we were doing, but we got on the ship so it worked out. The ship was nice. Our room was clean and our room steward was really nice. The food was ok in the buffet and ok in the dining room. Excellent at the Steakhouse. I highly recommend. The shows were really good also but what we enjoyed most was the guy running the Karaoke. Brilliant Jay ! He was really funny!! We ran into some rude and demanding people. I didnt like the way they treated the workers. But mostly people were nice and polite. Ran into one rude bartender but didnt see him after my friend complained. We felt safe in Mexico so all in all it was fun, but I do have to say that cruising is not for us. Too many people, felt like we were on a schedule somewhat and I just cant pin point what exactly it was but its just not for us. I do recommend that everyone who hasnt cruised do so. You may just get hooked. One more thing, the shampoo they provide is wonderful!! I have thin fine hair and after I used it my hair was so shiny and fluffy!!! I didnt even have to use creme rinse!! Another thing is that the beds were comfortable so we slept well.
