This was a great team building event. The staff was amazing and so friendly. Now let me say the DJ helped us turn the event to a very warm, funny event. We danced, talked, watch the sunset. Now the food was good for a buffet.

I did the Spirit of Norfolk for my birthday in 2017. My family and I had a ball. The food was good, the entertainment was good, the laughs were good. My only upset is that 2 hours is not long enough.

My family had a blast on this ship. Good food, good conversation and great entertainment. The DJ kept the dance floor full. A must do if in the area! Great for Reunions, Celebrations, Birthdays or just a night out on the water.

I have not, but I’m sure it would be awesome during a holiday. I did the cruise last year and this year and I had amazing time. Looking forward to my next one.
