It was great!! – My family and I did a lunch cruise the weekend of 4th of July and the weather was great - the welcome was great, the staff was accommodating and very service oriented - the view was great - the pre-planning experience was also always very helpful and made the planning as easy as possible! Would definitely do it again - made us feel very special on the cruise...
Spirit Luncheon Cruise – We went to the city for a combo 24th Anniversary and Fathers Day Cruise. We arrived and were greeted with big Hellos and Welcome. We escorted to our seats which were fine as we could view out the window while we ate our waitress was very friendly and accommodating. The food served as buffet style was plenty, hot and very tasty. I especially enjoyed the Salmon. Once we finished lunch we went top side and viewed our cruise they were very informative on where we were and what we were approaching.. We finished our topside about 20 minutes prior to the cruise ending and we went back inside and found waiting for us at the table to fabulous deserts. We would defiantly return for another cruise and would like to experience the Dinner Sunset on in the near future
Great College Reunion Event! – Hofstra's School of Communication faculty and alumni had such a wonderful time on the Spirit of New York last June, we jumped on booking our second cruise this summer!
Sure, working out the details with a university legal staff can be tedious but Margaret at Spirit was SOOO incredibly patient and willing to make it work. Definitely worth the battle.
The staff on board could not have been more helpful - the DJ, the bartenders, the wait staff. I had a minor issue that was resolved immediately and I couldn't be more pleased. And their ticket people were wonderful, too!
The food was fine - not great - but our open bar package and great service more than made up for that. I brought our famous Hofstra cookies and that was a big hit, too. (Some places won't allow food in.)
The only complaint I got from everyone was that the 90 minutes was too short. Wish there were a way to add half an hour at minimal cost, but there isn't so we're going to do 90 minutes again. I have no doubt we'll get a great turnout.
Spirit Cruise – My Fiance & I just recently joined the dinner cruise 01/16/2011 and we chose not to guarantee a window seat for the extra $50.00 because of the way they lay out was set up. Needless to say, we ended up seating one table over from the window and saved $50.00. The food was great, my favorite was the salmon. The only thing I did not like was u could not go upstairs because they were having a private party. The Martini glasses were so tiny, they probably could only hold a shot, that was a rip off. Oh yeah and the had the heat on hell! Overall the cruise was very nice, rather expensive. We paid $204.00 and that was with no upgrades. I do recommend you taking it if you want a romantic dining experience and you get the best pics of the Statue of Liberty on this cruise.
Breath-Taking View & Live Entertainment – Got a pair of comp tickets for VIP lunch foliage cruise and I was so excited to be on board. I know I am guaranteed to have a good time.
So the cruise is 3 hours long which takes you from Pier 62 Chelsea Piers to Hudson River. The scenery was amazing; you saw the change color of foliage.
The lunch buffet was pretty good. It was not 5 star but it is all-you-can-eat so I cannot complain. I really like the grilled chicken and mashed potato they serve. The desserts are probably the best among all. The cheesecake and chocolate mouse cake were great. We got 3 hour open bar so I got a nice Signature drink, which provides the glass as a souvenir.
On top of all these, they provide on-board live entertainment. All the waitresses on board are awesome singers and they each sing a song or two throughout the journey.
I had an awesome time on board and would definitely recommend to people who want to enjoy a great view of NY and a relaxing sail.
NEED A CELEBRATION IDEA? Look no further. – I needed somewhere to take my girlfriend for an anniversary and stumbled across "Spirit Cruises". I always heard of dinner cruises and wanted to take one, but never looked into it because I thought it would be too expensive and not worth it. Not only was the Spirit Cruise affordable, but it was awesome. From the time you arrive on the pier and get your photo taken, to the time you depart and the crew sends you off, the experience was well worth it. The food and desserts were delicious, the entertainment was great (some of the waiters should be on Broadway), and the sights are amazing. The Statue of Libety, Brooklyn Bridge, Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum are only a few of the many things you will see on your cruise. And when night falls, the view only gets better and provides an excellent backdrop for a breath taking photo opportunities, a romantic star gaze with a significant other, or just good time spent with friends and/or family. The cruise has all the right ingredients to cook up an evening you wont forget. Dinner, dancing, great people, and sights, everything you could ask for. I look forward to my next cruise and would recommend Spirit Cruises to any and everyone.
Really great fun! – We've been on many of the harbor cruise/dinner yachts here in the city. This one is my favorite. It's the right mix of great foods serenading staff; city lights; statue gazing; dancing & drinking.
Dining on the water with gorgeous views of New York City. – Overview
Several packages are available depending on the type and time of cruise. Typically guests will see the Brooklyn, Williamsburg, and Manhattan bridges, the Statue of Liberty and the New York skyline. The lunch cruises include a narrated historical tour of the harbor. Dinner cruises feature dancing to live music.
awesome view, excellent service & good food – I needed a special venue for my Mom on her 60th birthday and i was very glad to find out about this cruise. As reviewed previously by others, it met our expectations in service, food and the view. The performers were very good and sound system was excellent & not too loud that we could have conversation w/o a problem. Staff were very friendly & professional- one of them even taught my Mom Salsa! Tip is included in the payment when i reserved the cruise --our rate was 70 per person for sunday night andit came out to be about 110 after adding one drink, tax, service charge and separate tip for drinks. i would go again for my special day. Highly recommended. bring your camera!
We took the evening dinner cruise on Wednesday, April 2, 2008. From the time we boarded the Beataux I know we were in for a treat. Our waiter Sean was exceptional. My husband, step son (age 10) and I are from the land lock state of Colorado. We are in the hospitality industry and it takes a lot to impress us. This was a true example of hospitality on the water. From the ticket counter to the docking we were treated like royalty. We knew that going on the cruise would be a nice treat, but were absolutely overwhelmed by the level of service, the abundance of choices on the menu and the final result that was gracious placed in front of us at each course. The crowning moment was the extreme close up that we enjoyed of the Statue of Liberty. Though it was a little chilly standing out in the night air to see her that closely, it was beyond worth it. I could not recommend an activity more highly for tourists and locals alike. I have family heading out to NYC in June and they already have this cruise as a must do on their list. To not participate in this adventure is to rob yourself of a true treat that New York has to offer. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.
