It was great
The food was amazing, bathrooms were nice and clean. The staff could've been a little more attentive and it was hard to hear the narrative

Delicious food
My family and I enjoyed the Norfolk Lunch Cruise. The food was tasty and our waitress was nice and energetic. We really enjoyed the narrated tour of the Navy Shipyard; they did a great job providing information about how important the fleet is and it's history. Everything was well organized. Great cruise!

Good experience
Jun 2021
Easy boarding, Price for Photos is too much, should offer only digital, around $20.
Food , unlimited, was great. Fish, Chicken, pasta, salads, deserts.
Staff went above and beyond. DJ was fun. The views are great.
We will definitely come back for a more detailed Narrative tour.
Parking in Garage across the street, a short walk. If handicap, can be dropped off closer. About $6 for parking. Parking should be free, paid for or "validated" by
Spirit Cruise Line.
Upper deck, great views! Smooth ride.
Embarking was easy and organized. We liked the free Fathers Day raffle, should have
that on each trip. Two Grandsons 10 & 9, enjoyed the trip and the views.
No masks, so nice!!

Spirit of Norfolk was great!

Took a trip on the Elizabeth River aboard The Spirit of Norfolk. The dining was great but most of all the staff aboard the vessel was nothing short of professional and held a standard of excellence in service. Would love to visit again, you will enjoy this trip!

Celebrating our anniversary
Sep 2019 • Couples
My husband and I came to Virginia Beach for our anniversary vacation and were searching the internet to find things to do while here. We came across the Spirit of Norfolk and booked ourselves for the cruise. There was a wonderful buffet laid out for all the passengers, as well as some tasty desserts.

The captain gave us some history of the Naval ships that were docked along the cruise.

They also had a DJ who was very friendly and even played our wedding song, so we were able to have a special moment on the ship to celebrate our anniversary. It was a lovely time and I would definitely recommend the cruise. We had a wonderful time.

Wonderful afternoon, great narration and DJ!
Aug 2019
Had a great time on the lunch cruise with my man. The food was awesome (especially the honey sesame chicken) and atmosphere was great. The narration was educational and appropriate. It was a little loud on the ship so hard to hear at times, but there was a 45th high school reunion on board and they were partying hard (we didn't mind-they were very friendly and nice). The DJ was great too and Mark from Niagara Falls NY was our waiter and so sweet.
