Old School Party

Lady B & DJ Touch Tone played the best old school music. The food was good but the drinks were over priced. I had a great time. I will return.

I booked this trip they Groupon and I thoughly enjoyed the trip and dinner. The food was good for a buffet and they constantly refilled it. Chris our server treated us like family and tracked us down on the upper deck to ask us if we wanted coffee. Now that's service.

This is a different way to have dinner the scenery is different and lovely. The food is sub par. The mashed potatoes and Ziti had way to much salt guess that was the supplement for real seasoning. The fish was horrible. The chicken and beef was decent. Best part was the salad!! The food was not warmed enough and the... More

Went on a fireworks cruise July 2nd. Preordered photos which were supposedly being taken where you board. I was early and leaning on my cane for about 40 minutes when I was told I had to go back to the dock by the bow of the ship. I showed the girl my cane and asked if I had to go... More

Surprised my boyfriend for Father's Day on the spirit of Philadelphia. He's never been to the city or on the boat. I was a little disappointed by the service and the food. For 200 per couple the food was ok but the service was horrible. I've been on this ship for many different functions so I was hoping for at... More

Ordering online was easy. I would not recommend buying your ticket from TripAdvisor and to buy your tickets from the Spirit Cruises website, as the cost is much cheaper. We were onboard the Lunch cruise ( you get the same food for half the price ) and throughly enjoyed it. We were seated on the bottom deck which, although was... More

The majority of my disappoint is centered on the food buffet, but here are my list of positives: + Friendly waitress + Decent Drinks + Weather was nice for standing on deck The cons... More

I attended an party on the Spirit. The entertainment was great!! The food was just okay and with the amount of people who attended not everyone had a opportunity to eat. 👍🏾
