Went on this mini cruise with my wife for our anniversary and was more than pleasantly surprised! It was great smooth and lots of fun! I payed for the VIP option where you can get roses or complimentary glasses. It was worth it to not have to share a table and I got the unlimited bar option this is worth... More

Me and my husband planned this trip for our 2nd wedding anniveraary and we did not enjoy it. We purchased a vip package on a midnight cruise. The staff was nice but we were not treated like we were in vip. The waitress came over one time to ask what we wanted to drink and that was the last time... More

We have spent a couple of evenings dancing and dining on the Spirit of Norfolk. I think this is a nice attraction if you are hosting a party or invited for an event and don't have to pay full fare. They can be a bit pricey for the quality of food and entertainment. It really is a must see if... More

My husband and I were on one of the cruses for his company's holiday party. We had been looking at it for a special night out since we love cruising, but we are so glad we got to try it first. The food was very lack luster. Only a few options and most was just barley warm if you didn't... More

I went on the Spirit of Norfolk for the first time for the New Year's Eve dinner cruise this past New Year's 2014. As soon as we arrived, before we were even on the boat, we were warmly greeted by the captain and other employees. We were escorted to the ticket booth to pick up our tickets, and warmly greeted...

Our tickets were easily accessed but the parking could have been a disaster. your vehicle will be towed if not parked in the parking deck. The crew were extremely nice: welcoming crew, photographer, waitress, waiter and dj. As we walked in our names were on the screen. The window seat is definitely worth ever penny. The food was remarkable with... More
