VIP package includes food and... More

We took advantage of one of their available discount coupons to enjoy a fun two-hour lunch cruise on a Wednesday. We were greeted warmly at the door and shown to our table. Immediately we were invited to the standard welcome picture opportunity, a standard cruise feature. We had boarded about 40 minutes prior to launch, and offered a variety of... More

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
