The cruise was 2 hours, down to the minute. Very attentive, friendly staff. Too many small children to suit me. Food was tasty & plentiful, though temp was uneven. Will go again but will inquire about restrictions, for instance are there any...continued

The service department on the phone was...continued

Everything turned out better than expected. At the last minute I get an email saying that the Spirit wasn't available and now you're upgraded to the Odyssey. I was able to get a steak instead of the buffet and the drinks from the bar was included....continued

Great!! Once the stewardess heard we were celebrating a birthday she arranged a window seat for us and a nice balloon at the table. The food was delicious, especially the kus-kus (spelling?), Thai beef, and the desserts. The DJ was very...continued

We had a perfect night for sitting on the upper deck and watching the city lights and fireworks. Dancing was fun, as was the staff. Food was pretty good, as far as buffets go. Would recommend to anyone... it is as much fun as you want to make it!

It was alright; the views of Chicago were great, of course. But the DJ was cheesy, and the food was alright but not impressive. Probably could get better food and atmosphere on another similar ship (Odyssey?), but not for this cheap.
