This was our second trip on the Spirit and the weather certainly didn't dampen the experience. The service was wonderful. From the moment we walked onto the ship the crew were extremely polite, friendly and helpful. Smiles all around. Our waitress was extremely attentive and took time to welcome us to the ship. The drinks were appropriately but not over... More

Bad experience with one cruise ship staff member(JOHN at the carving station) but turns out to be the best ever!!!! I have decided to spoil my family members visiting NYC to a nice Sunday Brunch with Spirit Cruise Line. We were 9 guests among adults and teenagers. Picking up tickets at Chelsea Pier 62 was fast and smooth. The boarding... More

On a long US vacation with my girlfriend, I wanted to take her on a memorable experience. Although seemingly expensive, I liked the look of the buffet Hudson River Cruise and booked a table for 2 with a window view. We were supposed to cruise on a Monday night but due to lack of other interest the cruise was cancelled.... More

This cruise is amazing just with the views you are able to see, let alone adding a great dinner and drinks on top of it. Highly recommend doing this as a great way of being able to see the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty and the city at night. Dinner offered a range of foods including salads, mashed potato,...

Had an amazing time aboard. The staff and the customer service is excellent. The food was delicious. They did not overpower us with air conditioning. The DJ and his selections was on point. The deck was very relaxing and not crowded at all. Just what I needed for my birthday. Will do again.

We went on a Saturday Latin Moonlight Cruise around NYC on 7/30/16. We were celebrating a friends birthday and we were a group of 24. We got the Platinum Latin Moonlight Package - includes VIP Service, Cruise & Buffet, which was approximately $55.75 per person. I initially thought the package was over priced because of what was included, but the... More

I highly recommend the brunch cruise to everyone. My family and I (all adults) enjoyed the food which was very tasty, the warm friendly service and the nice mix of music by the dj. This cruise was worth every penny! It was 2 hours well spent. I am from the Caribbean and I will definitely take this cruise again because... More

My husband bought me a lunch cruise for Christmas and we were able to use it in July (through cloud 9). The vessel was large and fit alot of guests but was not crowded. We bought the premium bar package and got our money's worth. The drinks are expensive. The buffet was delicious! We had mashed potatoes, broccoli, honey chicken,... More

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
