Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect
Admire the hustle-bustle of New York City as you enjoy the laid-back ambience of your cruise around New York Harbor. Head to the buffet as often as you like to fill up on classic American fare (see Itinerary for a sample menu). Walk around the ship or lounge at your table as you listen to narration about the sights you see from the panoramic windows. Have your camera ready for share-worthy shots of top New York attractions including the Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge, the Freedom Tower, South Street Seaport, Governors Island, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
DJ entertainment helps keep the mood light and festive. If you've chosen the upgrade option, savor drinks from the premium open bar in addition to the buffet. Your 2-hour New York City lunch cruise concludes at Chelsea Piers.

We were notified a couple days in advance that our dinner cruise was cancelled and if we would like to be upgraded to the evening cruise on the same day for no additional charge. Of course we warmly welcomed it.
The food was excellent, the staff was great...warm and friendly.
The slow drift in front of Lady Liberty and the sunset behind her, made for a terrific finally. While so, Celine Dion was airing God Bless America. Speechless! There were some elder couples near me singing their hearts out along with her. I was very moved.
My family and myself have a forever mark on our hearts from our vacation to the great city of New York. We left changed.
Highly recommended! Whether a local, vacationers, or just passing through.

great crew, food and tour

We had a wobderful time but the people working fir the Spirit were confusing. One said one thing another said something. Our ticket said gospel lunch and the ither side said gospel optional. The food was excellent. I would not want to be seated next to the DJ. The music would have been too loud.
Our waiter Brenden was wonderful; very aware of our needs and others.
excellent trip as it was my wifes birthday the staff announced it and brought to our table a plate with cake and wrote around the plate was HAPPY BIRTHDAY SANDRA, nice touch,Staff and crew could not do enough to make it a pleasant and most enjoyable experience
