"My boyfriend and I had an incredible time celebrating our one year anniversary aboard the Spirit of Baltimore! Every single staff member was beyond friendly, entertaining, and accomodating. This experience was a surprise for my boyfriend and he loved every minute! The food was fantastic, we definitely left stuffed to the gills...the music was awesome, never a dull moment on the dance floor...and the excellent staff members topped off the overall experience. Thank you again so much. I think we will be looking at other experiences through your site in the near future!"
"Since it was a dinner cruise, I thought the food would have been a little better for the price. The staff were excellent. Fun time."
"It is quite unfortunate that I have to leave this review. The customer service at Cloud 9 was exceptional, however, after that the experience goes down hill as fast as an avalanche. As you enter the cruise there are staff there pushing costly picture. After boarding dinner begins. The food was just horrible. Mushy vegitables, dry chicken, tasteless fish, powdered mashed potatoes. Even the salad was limp. The music was too loud and catered to a very young hip-hop crowd. We were so unimpressed that I wanted to get off before they even left port. My husband wanted us to stick it out for the sake of our anniversary. We did, only because the people who sat next to us were good company. Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Lowe. I would not recommend this cruise to anyone."
