Manhattan Lunch Cruise

My husband and I had a wonderful time. It was a gift from our children for our anniversary. The food was delicious and the bathrooms were immaculate.The staff was wonderful and attentive and the parking was easy at pier 61. We tipped our waiter even though it was buffet and we didn't order any special drinks. The only thing I would have liked to have seen is more information on the gift certificate about suggestions about tipping with bigger and bolder print.

Very much enjoyed it, a gift from my daughter for our 44 th anniversary, our server Julia was excellent. I like the live music and singer and the lunch. My husband would have liked to go a little further under the Williamsburg Bridge, United Nations a few more sights. But overall we really enjoyed it.

It was a great trip around the harbor, but the food was hardly gourmet. Would recommend the boat trip but the food was standard catering food.

Cruise Luncheon 

5 stars

We have taken cruises around Manhattan for lunch and dinner but this cruise was so really good. It was a gift from my niece for my birthday. The food was delicious, the service was great. I drink alot of water and coffee and anytime my glass was empty the waiter was right there to refill. The piano player sang our favorite songs. We are planning our 25th anniversary in March and we are going to book this same type of luncheon for our group of 50 or more.

I got a vouncher for the above as a leaving gift from my old company. I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was and was impressed as soon as I stood on the boat. The layout means you have 360 degree views of the Manhattan and New Jersey waterside. The tables were covered in white linen with fresh flowers and you weren't seated too close to your next table. We were given a glass of sparkling wine as soon as we were seated and were invited up to the self serve buffet at our leisure. I would highly recommend this for anyone celebrating a birthday or anniversary - its romantic and the service was great plus you can walk about outside and take some great pics.

Very nice - concern with staff due to not as accommodating as hoped - guaranteed window seat on reservation, yet originally did not appoint us there until we put up a fuss - trip was great thanks to weather - food is so-so - drinks expensive.

Lunch Cruise Review 

2 stars

The cruise didn't get off to a good start. We arrived and although we were there at 12:30 for a 1:00 pm cruise our guaranteed window seats were not available. This was very disappointing since part of the experience of the cruise is seeing the sights which in our case was not so easy. We had to go outside and fight the crowd and also deal with the high temperatures in order to see much. The waitstaff was great. The hostess comped our bill to make up for the inconvenience of not having the window seats but since neither my wife or I are drinkers or big eaters we really didn't order much.

My husband and I enjoyed the cruise. I was thrilled to spend a romantic lunch with him as it is difficult to find time alone with him as we have two small children to care for.

Lunch Cruise Review 

5 stars

Our Children gave us this for Christmas knowing that we like jazz, food and NYC. We were a bit tentative because they forgot about my husbands sea sickness tendency. The servers were very attentive so we felt the freedom to move about, and go outside. Good food, pleasent music, great food & curteous.

The cruise was really great. It was a little hot sitting under the glass windows with the sun beating down, but that is the only complaint I have. The server was prompt and courteous, the food was fantastic, and the views of lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty were superb.

Brunch Cruise on Saturday 

4 stars

It was very nice. The service was a little spotty and the food was good (I wouldn't say great). But all in all we had a very good time and I would go again. I do have a suggestion though. Saturday was a very windy day. Your confirmation says to call Spirit the day of the cruise if you have any weather-related questions, but your confirmation does not give the number for Spirit. So I had to call information for the number and when I called, I got a voice mail message which said the hours were Monday to Friday. So obviously I would not have received an answer to my question in any case. And I agree wqith the comment about the boarding pass experience. We went directly to the boat with our confirmations and then were told we had to go to the ticket window to pick up the actual tickets.

My experience on the lunch cruise was okay. I really was expecting some entertainment / excitement. I only thing I really liked was that I got to spend some quality time with my mate.

Very fun time. The staff did a nice job with the narrative of the sites, although more detail would have been nice. The wait staff was very accommodating. Food was fairly good, but not 'gourmet'(except for dessert). All in all it was very enjoyable.

The experience was wonderful. The service was excellent, your personnel supper. However we should have been informed of the boarding pass procedure ahead of time and chicken is not gourmet, no way now how. By the way it was delicious. Tell the Chef.
