Its 9 decks contain 627 staterooms, 3 large restaurants as well as numerous lounges, buffets and bars, a cinema and casino, self-service laundries, swimming pools and Health Club, and several well-attended retail shops. The Spirit’s Broadway Deck is the centre of activity for entertainment, with the Broadway Show Lounge providing top-notch performances spanning all imaginable genre, including both classic and original productions.

The Spirit draws rave reviews for its culinary offerings from each of its facilities, with the added feature of being available anytime of the day or night not to be overlooked.
