Celebrating my husband's birthday...this dinner cruise was beautiful...they took all the right precautions due to covid...the boat, staff, food, music and ambience was just what we needed for a night out.
I would definitely recommend, relaxing evening the mood was already set..

Traveling to NYC with a time line is always risky business. We were planning to entertain guests from Florida and Indiana on Spirit of New York cruise. After being delayed for over two hour in traffic attempting to get to the Lincoln Tunnel we jumped ship (so to speak) at the last NJ exit. Taking a chance we made our way to the SPIRIT OF NEW JERSEY. The ticket agent suggested we speak to Mr. Mike Cimini, Cruise Manager. Mr. Cimini being of good spirit made the needed arrangements to allow us castaways to board the SPIRIT OF NEW JERSEY. Mr. Cimini has that can do spirit so often lost in the public relations. On board we found the service to be efficient and attentive. The food was a great surprise with the inclusion of two seafood entree, meat, chicken and veggies cooked right. The music and musical staff were party starters and kept things moving. The cruise of the Hudson River is always an eye opener, from Freedom Tower to the Lady Liberty, New Jersey has it all.
We thank Mike Cimini for turning the traffic nightmare into a nautical delight.

This cruise was good. Good food, nice entertainment, great views. I found all of the employees to be happy to have you on board and appreciative of your business, which, at times, is not easy to find in NJ/NY.

Our convention group chartered the entire boat for our dinner cruise. I could not have asked for a better experience. From the planning, right through to the execution, Spirit was first class. Prior to the cruise, my wife and I were invited to sample the food on the ship. They had recently put a new menu in place. All of the items with the exception of one were outstanding. I gave my feedback to Spirit and they actually changed that item out for a different one. I'm sure that I wasn't the only one to voice that comment. The night of the cruise, our guests with mobility issues were met at the buses with wheelchairs and transported to the boat. The hotel manager for our cruise Alex was outstanding. A true people person who paid attention to every detail to ensure a successful evening. Everyone commented on how wonderful the food was. I've since heard comments along the lines of "this was the best dinner cruise that I've ever taken". I would highly recommend Spirit to anyone looking for a great evening out on the water in the greatest city in the world.

My husband and I celebrated our 11th anniversary aboard the Spirit of New Jersey and we could not have been happier with our experience. From boarding to disembarking everything was wonderful. Our server, Elaine was so pleasant and attentive without being obtrusive. We purchased the Romance package and we received our champagne glasses as souvenirs. Elaine even added a personal, handwritten note with our glasses. What great service!!! The food was delicious. The ship is very nice after being recently remodeled. There was some entertainment from the wait staff which was very good and the DJ played a variety of music, he even took requests. My husband and I danced to our wedding song while cruisng the Hudson River. What a great way to celebrate 11 years together. We will definitely be taking another trip on this boat.

I can't understand why they can't do a refund of this travel. Also, I don't think so it's necessary that everybody have to be vaccinated because some people have bad reactions with this vaccine.

This was the most poorly organized cruise I’ve ever been on. Came on with a group, and they had to unload a ton of high schoolers (on a late-night cruise, seriously?), before we could set off. This was supposedly a dinner cruise with a buffet and drinks. Neither my husband nor I were able to get anything from the buffet because of the absurd number of people on the boat, including many underage people (high school aged), who were clearly served alcohol. It was not fun, and was not worth the money whatsoever. If there was any way to ask for a refund or file a complaint we would, but we toured with a group. Absolutely 100% will not be back, ever.

The overall cruise was fun!! Unfortunately/fortunately (lol), for us their were 2 sweet sixteen parties on board. We were celebrating a 50th bday. A lot of the adults onboard needed to lighten up & have fun, you pay too much money to be a bump on a log. it's a good thing the teenagers had a lot of energy on the dance floor & so did we. We made our own fun as well!!

The staff, cruise and food were excellent! There was a DJ on the lower deck and a live guitarist on the top deck. It was a perfect night, the sunset and skyline were stunning. To be honest the night could have done with being another hour longer as it seem to go so fast. For that, I would say it's quite expensive for what it is.
However, why put on your website that the dress code is slacks and shirts for men and sundresses/capri pants for women if it's not enforced?? My husband bought a pair of chinos in NYC especially (as he only had shorts with him) only to board to see men in scruffy shorts & trainers and women in jeans! It was a hot evening and he could've done with wearing shorts. Apart from that we really enjoyed it & got great photos.
