“A Fun Night Out”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

We chose the dinner cruise. First, the staff members are very friendly and attentive. Our server's name was Jess, and she was fabulous! I especially enjoyed how they addressed you by name. We had a private table at a window, however the tables are very close together, so if you are looking for an intimate setting, this is not a trip you want to take. The dinner was served buffet style, and all of the food was delicious. Dessert was plated and brought to your table, and again, very delicious. I would recommend purchasing the drink tickets when you purchase your tickets. They do save you money, and it was nice not having to "settle up" at the end of the cruise. Even though we took this in February, we still managed to go out on deck for a little bit. I loved the views! There was a really great DJ who was very entertaining and got the crown involved. Only down side -- the dance floor was a bit small. I saw there were a few larger tables with people celebrating birthdays or anniversaries. What a great way to celebrate, and we will keep that in mind for the future!

“New Year Eve”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We spend New Year's Eve here with some friends. The phone was good but it was really cramped quarters. Was disappointed with music, they didn't play Auld Land Syne which was a surpise on us. We did go out on deck to watch fire works. They did take photo which ended up being pricey after spending all the money on the cruise.

“Great Romantic Getaway”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

My boyfriend planned this trip for us for our one year anniversary. It was our first time and we had a blast! He paid for us to have our own table by the window, roses and a bottle of champagne (sparkling wine!). The buffet was delicous, but the dessert was to die for. Cheesecake and a chocolate mousse type dessert...I know why they don't put this on the buffet--there would be none left!! As others said, service was iffy. Our server came around to check on us sporadically and there were a few times when we had to seek him out.

The entertainment was great. The servers do join in and are amazing. The dance floor lights up and the DJ really gets a lot of people on the dance floor! We took a dinner tour and it went into the night--it was so romantic sitting up on the deck of the boat looking at the Philadelphia lights. We can't wait to go again with friends.

“The Gospel Cruise What a Wonderful Experince”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Our first experince sailing was in Va. on the Spirit of Norfolk. It was truly wonderful.
So when we got back home we decided to book a cruise around my wife's brithday in
October. The gospel cruise was well worth it, from the food, the service the entertainment.
I was so enthralled with the entertainment on ship, I was unaware when we returned to
dock. A wonderful cruise look forward to doing it again.
