A friend took my wife and I for dinner but didn't tell us where we were going. What a delightful surprise to wind up on the Spirit of Philadelphia. The food was good, the staff attentive and I even learned how to do a line dance. Most notable was the beautiful Philadelphia skyline as we cruised along the Delaware River.... More

Nine of us boarded the Spirit of Philadelphia on a Friday night for a fun night out. Everyone had a great time for different reasons. My 82 year old father loved sitting on the upper deck and watching the sights especially the Naval Boats docked, my daughters and their boyfriends (all in their 20s) danced all night and they had...

We decided to celebrate my father's 91st birthday aboard the Spirit of Philadelphia; obviously many other parties were celebrating special occasions as well. When I book for a Tuesday, I was told that there were no steps to navigate, only the gangplank. On Monday received a call that there were too few passengers and they were canceling the Tuesday cruise,... More

My wife bought us tickets for Father's Day and we went in July. The wait staff was incredible! Sophia was our waitress and was terrific. Like the rest of the posts, the food was OK... We will be back for another cruse.

The cruise part and the entertainment was pretty cool, it reminded me of a wedding reception, Kind of corny with alot of line dancing.The food was poor quality and not very good.the experience on a whole was entertaining, but for that price I don't think it's worth it.

I have been on the Spirit of Norfolk and The Spirit of Baltimore and this one was the best. The wait staff was awesome, the DJ was on point and everyone on board was friendly and we just had a wonderful time. One of the members in our group was in a wheelchair and the Captain of the Spirit help... More

A nice way to see the city skyline from the Delaware River and to see some of the old naval dockyards. Trip took about 2 hours, during which a buffet lunch was served. Whilst food was plentiful, the choice was quite limited. A bit of a party atmosphere - several anniversary/birthday groups on board. Main thing that we disliked was... More

I have always wanted to try the cruise, so I decided to take my husband for his Birthday. What a let down and a disappointment. For the price we paid the food was horrible, I wouldnt serve it to my Dog. It was a buffet dinner and the choices were very very limited. I would not recommend this cruise to... More
