"We really enjoyed our luncheon cruise on the Spirit. The buffet was nice and we had beautiful weather. The boat could use a good vacuum and clean though. Otherwise, great time!"
"Very enjoyable lunch cruise -- it was a fun experience."
"We had a wonderful cruise. The crew was excellent & very helpful. My husband is somewhat handicapped and the crew were very helpful getting him to the upper deck. I would recommend it everyone. As former sailors on the Chesapeake Bay, it was great being on the water again. I would only recommend a better menu. The food left a bit to be desired. We are hoping to do another cruise with you next year. Gail Umbarger"
