Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Make your way to a launch site in downtown Norfolk, where the crew of the recently-overhauled Spirit of Norfolk welcomes you aboard for a dockside launch party. You have time to explore the ship while it's still tied to the dock, from the climate-controlled interior decks to lounges, game spaces, dance floors, and full-service bars (alcohol will be available for purchase throughout the cruise).

After the ship pulls into the Elizabeth River, enjoy unobstructed views of the Norfolk Skyline as a DJ spins music from the dance floor, with the option to join in the dancing, play indoor and outdoor games, or simply relax on deck. Sit down to a buffet dinner of salads, fresh entrees, and desserts along with unlimited hot coffee, tea, and water.

The dinner tables on the Spirit of Norfolk can accommodate groups of all sizes, with seating options for two to 10 at communal tables that offer a fun opportunity to socialize. At the end of your cruise on the Elizabeth River, the Spirit of Norfolk returns to Otter Berth, where this tour concludes.

It wasn’t worth the drive, the food was cold, the manager on the cruise was rude! We didn’t get the special occasion that was requested! 160 dollars is way to much for cold food, expensive drinks and rude people
