I was on the Spirit for 15 nights for the Nov 3rd, 2007 repo to New Orleans and loved the ship. We had no problems getting towels by the pool. There were in large bins by the blackjack table. No problems with the food. We really liked the fare in the Blue Lagoon.
The hotel and cruise directors were a lively bunch and it showed in the social hosts as they were having fun. We will be back on the ship again right after its drydock and on the first sailing out of NOLA for the winter 2008 season.
