Today was National Red Hatters Day, so the boat was filled with Red Hatters dressed in all their bling's,gorgeous hats and clothes.That boat rocked with fun. You board the boat at 11:30 am and leave at 12pm. You're all seated at tables,they take your beverage order and then serve a buffet lunch which was yummy.They take pictures before you board... More

We attended the lunch buffet and there was also a gospel brunch. Except for getting in the ship the entire cruise was well organized. You can go from floor to floor. Outside upstairs is a walk up bar and nice comfortable chairs. The DJ on our floor was great. Seems as though it took the gospel band way too long... More

Always nice being on the water. The private party had good music which made the cruise so enjoyable. The food was good but the alcohol is a waste of money. Cup of wine $8 and was like flavored water. Tried Hennessy n coke for $12. Not sure if I had a teaspoon of liquor. Beer might be worth your money.

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
