“Spirit Of Philadelphia Dinner Cruise”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2011

We had a nice cruise on the Delaware river. It's a good chance to see the city skyline and other attractions along the Delaware river. The food was good and it is a self serve on a buffet line. The entertainment was OK, but it reminded you of a very loud wedding reception.
Please be aware of the drink prices though. The beer was OK at 5 dollars a bottle for a local brand. The wine however was 12 dollars a glass and that is really pushing it. We were with two other couples and our bar bill was 165 dollars plus tip.

“Great Evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2011

We used a coupon as well. IT was a great evening, the waiters sing (awesome voices) in between the DJ playing. Buffet was a carving station of beef and pork, grilled fish, chicken florentine, pasta, veggies, mashed potatoes, salad, potato salad. Dessert is two mini desserts, one a cheesecake with lemon and top and one a chocolate cookie with chocolate mousse dipped in chocolate. Everything was very good. Coffee, hot tea and ice tea included. Soda and alcohol is available at a cash bar. Very good night if you want something different.

“Something different and better than just a regular dinner.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2011

The boat was nice, renewed, the buffet style dinner was delicious and fresh, atmosphere was fun, if you want to dance, stay in, of you want to chill, go to the top deck. Overall was a great night. We paid $44 per person via Groupon.

“April 2011! Fantastic Cruise - I'll be back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2011

I recently went on the Spirit of Philadelphia. The ship has been completely renovated. I was really impressed with the courteous and prompt service. Every server within our area asked if we needed anything. The food was great! It was fresh and tasty. They have a really cool new dance floor that is lit on each deck. The DJ was right on with his songs and everyone was groovin! I would recommend the cruise for a date, for my family or my customers. Way to go Spirit! Great job bringing me back! I would go again in a minute!
