Default Spirit vs Dawn

I am trying to decide which cruise to pick, one is on the Spirit the other on the Dawn. I have been on the Dawn twice. Anyone been on both and which one do you prefer and why??

I've Worked on Both, and I LOVE the spirit.

They are both beautiful ships.
I'd go on the spirit, its a bit smaller- 20 ,000 tons smaller.. its got everything the dawn pretty much does, only in a smaller setting.
The crew is happy, and friendlier there i find. The dawn was a huge stressful place to work, and i think you'd notice it in the services you'd get onboard.

Its very clean, and its not so much walking to get to get to everywhere!

Anyway, i think you should try the spirit, because you've already been on the Dawn.. why not try something else.
The spirit- great choice.

When I was on the Dawn there was a waiter by the name of Duhri, from India, do you know him, he was transferring to the Spirit the last time I sailed the Dawn.

The Dawn was built for NCL whereas the Spirit was reflagged from the parent company's line Star Cruises. I believe it was the SuperStar Leo. I've been on the Dawn but not the Spirit and it seems like a beautiful ship with enough differences to make it worthwhile trying.

I have been on both and would have to flip a coin they where both great.
But if you have never been on the spirit I would check it out.

We were also looking at the Spirit for a 6 night Bahamas cruise. However on Travelocity I read some not so great reviews. Does it depend greatly on the crew and the destination?
I know the ship is about 77,000 tons, and we want a fairly big ship to sail on with alot of activities. Will this fit the bill?
