I worked with Mary Elizabeth in the Sale Department and planned a small dinner party as a surprise for my mom's 60th birthday. From the time we got on the boat until we got off, everything was perfect. Everybody was accommodating and kind. The food was delicious and everyone said how good their meals were! This is a must do... More

We enjoyed the dinner cruise with the reunion group from the U.S.S. Ranger. Although it was crowded, the wait staff did their best to serve us with very fresh and well prepared servings. The views at sunset and then at dark were amazing as we passed the U.S.S. Yorktown and slowly cruised under the Ravenal bridge. A wide selection of... More

Took the dinner cruise along the Cooper River, it departed in the late afternoon and returned just after dark. Food was good for such a large group and service was prompt and efficient. Nice views, Including, USS Yorktown, shipping port, and Ravenal bridge. The top deck has seating if you choose to sit and enjoy the view after dinner.

The first part of the cruise is at sunset, which is a great view of Charleston, but once it is dark with no moon, or very cloudy, you are too far from shore to see anything until the last part of the cruise where they go back up the harbor on the far side of Charleston. The waitstaff was efficient... More

There were children on that's... More

I attended last week with a group of ladies for my birthday and we had a great time! Only problem I had was the seating arrangements. We were told when I booked that my entire party would be able to sit together at one table and when we got there only to find ourselves split up. I also think that... More

The staff and crew at Spiritline Dinner Cruises are extremely professional and courteous, making for a delightful experience! We were in a group of 6 girls, one of which has a dietary restriction and allergy and our server, Greg, was so knowledgeable and accommodating. The food was also very good as well, from the she-crab soup, mixed green salad and... More

We went on this dinner cruise our first evening in Charleston. I thought the picture taking by a life preserver before boarding was silly. A large tour group was there the same evening and we had to wait a long time on the ramp while pictures were taken - and then they gave up taking photos to sell. There were... More

I am sorry to hear that the dinner cruise was not what you expected. At the request of our customers we do offer a number of special packages including the table-for-two which guarantees private seating not a window table. We do not ever guarantee window seating although with large panoramic windows on three sides of the Spirit of Carolina there... More

I have taken this dinner cruise at least 5 times - each experience was unique and memorable! Any special occasion can be celebrated aboard without regret. The staff are courteous and attentive.

Charleston is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Enjoy extraordinary harbor views, while passing notable landmarks, from the comfortable decks of the Spirit of Carolina. Our Executive Chef prepares a delicious three or four course dinner made to order onboard from local, seasonal ingredients. With live music from local musicians nightly and an amazing sunset over the Charleston Harbor - This is truly Live & Local Waterfront Dining!
