Spirit Cruises - welcoming your input

Hello all,

We won a $200 gift certificate for Spirit cruises. Has anyone taken one of these? Food decent? Music too loud? Your two cents are welcome.

No experience with the company ... but you WON? Did you enter a drawing or contest? ... or did you just win because you are 'special'?

hmmm ... if latter, then watch out for the 'free lunch'. Could be costly.

For cruises, I don't think that $200 is much of a deal. I think that we got $200 per person off plus a two category upgrade plus a $75 dining credit for a six day cruise. I would shop around and read the fine print (e.g., is the coupon only valid for a full price cruise.)

No experience with Spirit but I would recommend you check out Cruise Critics.

This was a drawing at the Monte Carlo night last Friday - just plain 'ol gift certificates. These will cover all but about $3.00 of the regular full price dinner cruise. (or the whole lunch cruise) If we want to upgrade to the "romance" package, that will be extra out of our pockets. Not in the market for souvenir glasses and a bottle of cheap champagne and roses. Buffet dinner, cabaret style seating, live music, a 3 hour cruise around Manhattan (unless we choose to go to Philly, DC, Boston, Chicago or Norfolk)

NYC viewed from the water at night is beautiful.

Then this sounds like a good deal since most of the cruise costs are covered.

later this year we're having our high school reunion 50th birthday party on a world yacht dinner cruise out of manhattan.

we often cruised around manhattan on my parents' boat in my youth. up the east river and down the hudson. the city is amazing by water. my last visit up there when i wanted to go into the city i parked in jersey just so i could take a ferry across. love it.

Funny... I loved it and it was my work commute for awhile... lived on the south tip of the island and worked in Jersey.. went against the flow, so it was not crowded either way... but when it was cold and or choppy, not much fun..
