Full description
See the sights of the city from onboard the Spirit of Philadelphia during a 2-hour lunch or 3-hour dinner cruise on the Delaware River. Enjoy a buffet dining experience as you sail through the city and delight in panoramic views of the skyline.

Board your vessel at Penn's Landing and receive a personal greeting. Have your photo taken by the ship's photographer to capture the memory before being seated at your private table. Once there, gorge on your lunch or dinner buffet which includes an array of dishes and delicacies.

At the salad bar choose from organic mixed field greens salad, organic spinach and kale salad, green bean salad, bean and chickpea salad, red beetroot salad, and more. At the veggie station, opt for roasted broccoli florets, creamed corn and cheddar cheese casserole, baked ziti pasta, and tasty mashed potatoes. For your entree, dine on oven-baked Atlantic flounder fillet, honey and sesame chicken, or Italian beef meatballs. If you’ve still got room for dessert, tuck into some seasonal fruit, fluffy raspberry mousse, lemon pound cake, coconut vanilla cake, and carrot cake.

After your meal, play games like giant Jenga and shuffleboard, or bust out some moves on the dance floor to the sounds of the onboard DJ. Don't forget to visit any of the 3 climate-controlled decks as you glide along the river for optimal views of the city.

From very first interaction we had with the cruise staff I knew it was not going to be what I had imagined. The voucher that was emailed to me said the Sunday Brunch cruise was to start at 11:30, we arrived at 11:15 and we were told by a very rude female that the cruise didn’t start until 12:30 and we should go find something to do. The way they explain the buffet line , is that after a staff member tells your table to go up to the buffet, you are able to go up for seconds. We were the last table to be sent up, which meant every other table was on their seconds or thirds before we even had our first. By the time we got up there there were no plates,the buffet tables looked very unappetizing from people spilling food everywhere, and we had to wait for just about everything to be refilled. I will never recommend this lunch/brunch cruise to anyone. We were very disappointed. And the bathroom smelled disgusting and the floor was super sticky
