Drinks were horrible. Nice deck on the outside at the top of the boat. Hated the drinks. The drinks were watered down. Food okay but nothing to write home about.

I made reservations for my husband's birthday in September, 2014. The Sightseeing Lunch Cruise was two hours long and there is a narrator on board who gives information about the navy boats docked in Norfolk. The buffet was excellent and the music was enjoyable. My husband and I had a great time. The staff was very friendly. Everyone must try... More

The food was great. Plenty of room to move around. The dinner cruise was very elegant and great ambiance for any romantic occasion. The upper deck provided seating for intimate moments.

Received bookings from our children for me and my wife in a continuing celebration of my 80th birthday! The weather did not cooperate at all - heavy downpours the entire day. Did not seem to dampen the spirits of anyone. Almost a full house for the Luncheon cruise and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. A very large crowd celebrating,... More

My husband and I recently (09/20/2014) took a trip on The Spirit of Norfolk to celebrate our 10 year anniversary! I am so glad that he planned this. When we booked we took advantage of a $100 gift certificate that had been given to us by one of his bosses (that he had since 2008....he was still worth the $100... More

I recently had dinner on the Spirit as a part of a conference for the company that I work for. The atmosphere was great, that staff was amazing and very interactive, however the food could have been better. But I had a great time and I would return if I visit the area again

I recently arrange about 100 or so of my former shipmates to go on the Spirit of Norfolk Lunch cruise. It lasted about two and we were served a wonderful buffet . This is truly a must stop if you are in this part of Virginia. The boat takes you around the harbor and the speaker informs you about all... More

We chose the Early Dinner Cruise and it was just average. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. The cruise offered a nice dinner by one of the "food network's chopped chef's" which was enjoyable. However, we made the mistake of skipping breakfast (not on purpose) and having an early lunch at a nearby restaurant prior to boarding the... More

My wife & I celebrated our 6th anniversary on board the Spirit of Norfolk. We had an excellent first experience on the ship. The food was delicious and our server Brittany was outstanding, the other staff was very cordial & friendly also. Can't wait to do it again.

I rode on the Spirit of Norfolk as part of my husband's Navy reunion, and I think it was my favorite part of the tour we took. The food was very good, and apparently their chef is a champion of the Food Network show "Chopped." After we ate we went up to sit outside on the deck and see the... More
