We went on a dinner cruise and I felt that for the money we paid (close to $100 per person), it was definitely not worth the money. The food wasn't that good. It was the quality of an average diner. It was essentially like a wedding reception with noisy teeny-bopper music playing (Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé, etc.) full-blast and really nowhere... More

We went on this lunch cruise as a "day date" for my husband and I. We went on line and saw the packages and a section for guaranteed window seat for $50. Not sure if this was an additional 50 for the window or $50 a person for the cruise and the window seat, we decided to call and place... More

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
