Caribbean out of New Orleans two 1 wk back-to-back
Roatan Honduras zip line prep
Really fun 9th & 10th cruise for my husband & myself. First wk w/family was busy & fun for everyone. The port in Honduras had great shopping variety & value, very clean- seems to be set up for cruisers. We walked right outside the port to sched our own zip line experience for beginner(s)$40 w/ship card, 11 zips-really safe& fun. Great snorkeling in Belize-just take the public water taxi to the Barrier Reef, Goff Cay & in Cozumel at Chankanaab Pk, reasonable public trans cost. The Spirit was clean,good price for balcony rm, good food variety at the buffets & main dining area. Salt water pool w/pool side shower & good band entertainment at the pool. The casino staff had great attitudes. We've been on some ships where the employees were unhappy but this was not the case on the Spirit. We were surprised by being "perked" as V.I.P.'s our 2nd wk which was fun-complimentary bottle wine, afternoon snacks to our rm, breakfast&lunch in the specialty restaurant, first-off tender tickets. Only sort-of downside, no public laundry on ship or fridge in rooms.
