Liked: great views of the Statue of Liberty at sunset; Disliked: excessively pricey drinks. Liked: waiter was funny and very accommodating; Disliked: crowded upper deck--needed more tables for standing and seeing, fewer sofas that stayed empty.

Wasn't really "on-board" with this idea at first, but hubby wanted to see July 4th fireworks in the city. The whole evening was outstanding! The Spirit cruise, we were on the New Jersey, was first class. We arrived early to beat the traffic, but even then many of the roads were blocked and we ended up walking a little (of course, were in the city!) Upon arriving the staff was ready and waiting with champagne, cocktails and appetizers. The night was nicely planned with food always available (and delicious), music, a cruise up to the Washington Bridge and then a great spot to watch the fireworks. We didn't come back immediately after the fireworks were over but no fault of Spirit as all traffic is directed by the "officials". This was ok since the night was gorgeous. Little difficult to get a cab but still wouldn't recommend the pre-planned transportation as those lines were very long.

Regina Belle was incredible, I will not soon forget her singing as we looked at the Manhattan skyline at night. The sound system was very good and piped on deck at a pleasant volume. The crew was excellent. Especially nice were the comfortable and clean couches on deck. Note - the buffet, while lacking in variety, was delicious. Don't go on this cruise expecting to bust your belly, only one trip is allowed to the buffet, but using one plate for salad and another for mains was not frowned upon. No desserts that I saw, but the sounds of Regina Belle were plenty sweet enough. Finally, the clientele seemed to be mostly locals on the Wednesday night we went and were pleasant, quiet and respectful of the singer, nothing like the crass "booze cruises" or "gambling cruise" people I tend to see in Florida.
