New York Cruise

We had a wonderful time on the dinner cruise. This was a wedding gift to us, so we had no idea what to expect. We definately did not expect the food to be what it was. The food was truly delicious. The Staff was great. We had no complaints at all. Believe me if we had a complaint we would definitely express our thoughts. We met some nice people on the cruise. It was a pleasant experience. Sincerely, Dennis & Debbie Peloso

NYC Dinner Cruise 

4 stars

Had a good time and the views are worth the ride. Upon arrival our window table was taken, but they did give us another just as good. The waitress seemed spread too thin which affected the overall service. We were last in our area to receive drinks and it was very time consuming to get more EXPENSIVE drinks. The food was very good, but that could have been the large quantity of butter used - ok to eat only once in a while. It would have been nice to have a coctail hour to mingle with people while eating some orderves. The food was very rushed leaving not enough time to check out the outdoor views before eating. The entertainment was just ok, although they had some talanted employees. The outdoor tables could use some grip for the glasses. Overall amazing view of NYC, NJ, Brooklyn and Statue of Liberty well worth the photos that can be taken. It was a nice unique gift.

The Cruise was Great the food was excellent the service was great our waiter was the best. We really enjoyed his singing. You see it was our anniversary and my wife was so impressed that she could not stop talking about it after the evening. She loved the Roses and the champange but we did not get the chocolate truffles but it was not important we had a great time and we hope to do other things in the future.

We were treated very well, and had lots of help from crew members with my wife's scooter and subsequently, her wheelchair. Our wait help, Ashley, was spectacularly helpful, acceeding to our every request. All in all, it was a great experience.

It was not as bad as I thought. The menu was limited. The DJ was annoying. The inside of the boat looked a little shabby and the carpet needed a shampoo really badly. I was hoping we would go all around Manhattan island but we started at west 23rd st and went up to the south street seaport on the east side. We had a brief stop at the statue of liberty but it is at night so average cameras wont get a good photo. If you never had a dinner cruise before this is a good way to try one.

Spirit of New York Dinner Cruise 

4 stars

We had a wonderful time. The buffet, while limited in items, was delicious. The staff was very nice and attentive. We had both a server and assistant server to see to our needs and the manager came to each table in our section to introduce himself. With window seats, we had a excellant view of the skyline. The DJ did a fine job of selecting music for both dining and dancing. We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise.

I found the cruise to be very nice, it was my first time giving such a gift to my girlfriend, the food to me was excellent along with the wait staff. They were all very attentive and on top of their game as far as making you feel comfortable. The only thing I wasn't impressed with was that we could not go up on the observation deck, I feel as though they could have planned a little bette for the inclement weather we experienced earlier in the day. But other than that, not a single complaint from me, very impressed with the whole experience

Spirit dinner cruise 

4 stars

We had a great time. Very nice dining room and we were given a window seat-nice suprise! The food was good, absolutely nothing to complain about. The weather was perfect and we spent a lot of time outside. The only reason I did not give a 5 was because of how loud the music was outside on the upper deck. I'm sure some people liked it, but we found it very intrusive and unnecessary on a beautiful evening cruise.

Spirit Cruise 

4 stars

We received this cruise as a gift and decided to use it on our anniversary. The cruise was very enjoyable except for the first 15 minutes when we boarded and was told that we were not entitled to get the champagne glasses, flowers and chocolates because we did not pay for that package. This caused us disappointment and embarrassment. However, so as not to completely ruin our evening, we put it behind us and said we would take it up with them the next day.

The ship ride was nice and the night out with my wife was also good. It was a beautiful night, the food was ok not great. Some of the food was cold, we had been given one plate of desert for two people. The waiter did not come around very much to look after us.

Overall somewhat disappointing. It was a beautiful balmy summer night and we spent quite a bit of time outside with spectacular views of Manhattan, the bridges, the 'Waterfalls' and the Lady. However, paid for a window seat (confirmed)and didn't get it, Ordereed pricey red wine that was served HOT (100+ degrees), and ate mediocre cafeteria food. Service was marginal had to literally pull the waiter off the dance floor to get served coffee. I'd give you a five on the cruise and 2 on most everything else.

Had a great time, cruise itself was wonderful.Service was OK, food was really disappointing, reminded me of hospital food. We were encouraged to go outside, went out for about five minutes, came back, noticed other people were eating salad, asked for ours, told we were too late? Next time we'll do the Circle Line and eat in Manhattan instead.Entertainment was very good
