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

We were so excited for this event because we love food and boats :) the menu was extremely well written, but the food was subpar cafeteria at best. The mashed potatoes were bland. The braised short ribs on top of them could have been any type of meat ; tiny, tender and unidentifiable. The tilapia was repulsively fishy. The chicken... More

Ship was packed with prom kids and wedding couples. Basically a wedding/ prom on a ship. Everyone was having fun. Lots of line dancing an hip hop. Food was very good. Not a quiet, romantic evening though. Only a few slow songs.

The overall experience was acceptable. The DJ/music was good, the ship was nice, and the staff was polite. However, some glaring issues I really hope they get fixed for other people. I paid for the first class experience and upgraded drinks. This meant unlimited drinks all pre-paid for $30. I noticed everyone around us was paying for drinks as they... More
