We had a great evening cruise with a group of college reunion friends on the Spirit of Norfolk. We upgraded to a premium package to include open bar and a champagne toast. It was well worth it, and our excellent server found our group wherever we were on the boat (table, upper deck, poker table or dance floor) to see... More

I took this cruise with my spouse and 9 other fellow church members. It was a celebration of our Pastor and his wife's 20 anniversary as out Pastor. The food was excellent. The staff was excellent. Just too short. By the time everyone got to know each other, it was over. About 3 hours.

I did the brunch cruise, It is totally a lot of fun and comfortable cruising up and down the Elizabeth River. The staff is friendly. The food is hot and delicious. The DJ is a lot of fun and play all types of songs. The experience is worth the price of ticket. Great memories.

This was our first trip on the Spirit of Norfolk and we really enjoyed the trip. The food on the buffet was very good and offered fish and pork. My wife and I really like to dance so we did enjoy that part of the trip. We took the lunch cruise and wished it would have lasted a little longer.... More
