I too am going on the Carnival Spirit Dec.5th with Debbie's group.
I was on the one she had last April 14th and had a great time. Good mix of age groups, we all got along very well. I usually travel alone but do like to go on at least one of her group cruises a year, and this time I picked the Spirit, it looks like a beautiful ship.
Hope to meet you on board,
