There are very few reviews for the Spirit. I was just wondering if the shows are different on the Pride since from the only information I can find is that they seem to be very similar. I love to cruise and it seems like I day dream about it a lot. Especially since no one seems to have done a review. Any information I can get I would love to have. I have a balcony on the upper deck with an obstructed view which I have been told is just as good as the other balcony rooms.
Hi h2o, Have not been on Spirit. But most of the ships have a theme/production they use for that particular ship and season. I would not think you would see the same show on a different ship. You do sometimes get the same tired jokes from the Cruise Director
I've been on the Spirit. A balcony on upper with an obstructed view means "lifeboat" How much do the claim it is obstructed? Partially, fully??? You might want to ask if you are heartset on being able to see a whole lot. We stared at a lifeboat hull out of our "fully obstucted" view (if you looked just right you could see water, but not much of it). Since we paid for an inside cabin, I didn't complain.
The shows are different I'm sure, but the themes may be similar (they all seem to do a "Las Vegas" style review) And I think the cruise directors have a shared "lame joke" book they circulate amongst the ships..
I can tell you whatever you want to know .. fire a question at me... The layout of the Spirit is different from the Conquest class of ship in that the Promeade deck is on deck 2 instead of 5, so it takes some getting used to. But overall the layout makes sense and works well.
from what I am told by my TA is the "obstructed view" is that if I look down I will see the top of the life boat but I will be able to look out and see the ocean and everything else. It is cheaper and the only thing supposedly I won't see is looking straight down to the ocean. I enjoy the Vegas style shows and the comedians and other type of entertainment. Sometimes I am grateful that I didn't pay a per person fee for the shows but as they are included I find them entertaining
I was on the Spirit in 2004 and will be on her again in April next year. I think that the Spirit is a very easy ship to get around and is very spacious. I like it more than the Glory because there is a deck above pool level that you can walk all the way around the ship and on the glory you needed to go down a level and then back up.
7thson or Jim C or anyone else who could help, have you ever stayed in one of the penthouse suites aboard the Spirit. Looking for input.(Size, Balcony, Decor, etc) The picture in the catologe leaves alot to be desired.
Not a penthouse suite, but one our party did stay in a suite. It was the size of a standard hotle room with a sofa and small wetbar.. the bathroom had a full size spa tub and a seperate changing area. Very nice.
h2owatson- IF you are on the upper deck, what your travel agent told you is accurate, you will be looking over the top of the lifeboat. If you are good with that, then fine. The shows are about what you stated. its you normal mix of dance shows, comdey, magicians etc..
