This was a brilliant experience. We had upgraded so had a window seat and free bar for some alcoholic drinks. The food was fantastic as were the views. If I ever go back I will be doing this again.
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.
Absolutely brilliant Cruise. Staff were great, Ship was very comfortable and buffet lunch was excellent. Not to be missed. This is a must do when in NYC and real value for money.
We enjoyed the lunch cruise, excited about the music and especially the food, couldn't have been better. Had a great relaxing time with the amazing view. Definitely going again soon.
great crew, food and tour
would recommend and probably would go again
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
MY WIFE AND I WENT ON THIS TRIP AND ALL WAS GREAT EXCEPT BUT THE MUSIC WAS TOO LOUD AND IM ONLY 42 AND IT WAS EVEN LOUD FOR ME! THERE WAS ALSO SOME TYPE OF CHILDRENS DAY CAMP AND THE KIDS APPROX. 50 PLUS WERE RUNNING ALL AROUND THE SHIP. I WAS HARD TO ENJOY BUT THE STAFF SHOULD OF STEPPED IN AND CALMED THE KIDS DOWN! BUT AGAIN FOOD AND STAFF AND SHIP WERE GREAT!
The crew was very nice and professional from the begining to the end.The entertainment was also very good it made me feel like I was on a real cruise ship.I didnt know there would be entertainment,I thought it was just the lunch and the sightseeing,and the food was very good also.I just wish it was a little longer because I had such a good time.
Our group had a very nice time. Weather was perfect! Food was good. One complaint would be that we were last table to get food, therefore, spent more than an hour inside waiting to get on line.
The boat was nice. The lunch was tasty. The staff were good. However, after lunch, I sat on a cushion on a bench on the outside deck and my pants were soaked after that. Otherwise, I would have rated it a 5.
Viator booked us on a day that the cruise line wasn't operating!!!! Spirit was great working with us to get us on another day. The cruise was GREAT. We did the lunch cruise which was awesome, but we wished we would have done the night cruise just because it would be more lively. The DJ kept lively and fun. Food good and scenery great.
My family took pictures from the photographer and didn't even get to see them. The photographer left without even showing the photos and seeing if we wanted to purchase.
The tour also could have included more historical references. I thought it was going to be a narrated tour. I didn't hear much.
We were expecting a nice and quiet lunch cruise, and feel like we ended up on the disco boat from hell. Bad food, cheap drinks, and singing waiters just topped up the bad experience. Most people on board didn't even care to look at the sights, they were there to dance and drink. Want to see sights from the Hudson, make sure to choose another cruise line than his.
