I've saied on the IMAGINATION, FANTASY(twice), the PARADISE and the SPIRIT. The SPIRIT was my favorite vessel, but the dining room team and the entertainment were the worst. John Heald was my first cruise director and he's still the best. Since 1995 I've noticed that the food has gotten better and the service has gotten worse. I don't know why but the East European help on the Spirit were just not very friendly or prompt.. I can honestly say I've enjoyed every cruise, including the one two weeks after 9/11.
