Spirit Gives Back


2nd Annual Cruise for A Cure with Susan G. Komen

"We donate $16,000 in in kind for them to have a fundraiser on our boat. We believe it's important to give back to the community and especially this one because we have a shipmate that has battled this deadly disease for two years." - Tina Swan, Sales & Marketing Director for Spirit Cruises.
