Don, I'm so excited about your review. My family and I are going on the Spirit during Thanksgiving week. (a group of 10 people). We're prepared for the small cabins, and will be happy if everything is clean and well staffed. I've looked at several pictures of the ship, and it LOOKS beautiful. As for the poker, my husband will be THRILLED about the Texas hold'um!
Susanna, I will be sure to post a review about our cruise when we get back, so maybe that wll help with your December cruise
