    We initially did not purchase window seats for this dinner cruise. On the day of the event, I called up to upgrade to window seats and I was told we could not upgrade to window seats but that there were 8 different window seats available and that we should arrive early if we wanted our seats to be upgraded to window seats. We were one of the first people on the boat and I requested that the person seating us upgrade our reservation to window seats. He said that we were the first group requesting this and that if a window seat was open, we would be the first group (we were only 2 people) upgraded. After we were seated at our non-window seats, another couple came on and, even though they were directed to their non-window seats, they move and took the available window seat. The same person that told us that we would be the first group upgraded to window seats went over and moved the other couple from the window seats and made them sit at their non-window seats - which were ironically right next to us. No one was ever seated at the available window seats during general boarding. After boarding was completed, the other couple was moved to the window seats and we were never offered window seats. I feel this was wrong for three reasons. First, the person seating everyone promised us that if anyone was upgraded to window seats, it would be us because we were the first group that requested an upgrade. This company's representatives should not be making promises that they don't keep. Second, the other couple tried to take the table with window seats without asking anyone. While they were initially stopped, they eventually got the window seat (over us) even though we properly requested (and we were promised) the window seats. So your company is rewarding them for trying to take the seats themselves and penalizing us for trying to obtain the window seats the proper way. Third, I hate to say that race was a factor in this, but the person seating people and the people that were seated at the window seats were of the same race. Neither I, nor my companion, were of that race. Your company should not be favoring one race over another.
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi there Irene and Steven,  I want to apologize for any disappointments experienced on your Dinner Cruise, and thank you for bringing this to our attention and sharing your experience!  I spoke with the cruise line regarding your reservation, and the request for a window seat. Customers are welcome to upgrade their reservation to a window seat directly through our cruise partner. They did informed us that the only way to guarantee a window seat is through the purchase of the window seat upgrade. I cannot speak to the conversation you had when discussing the window seating, but we do appreciate you letting us know, and will work with our partners to provide more clarification for guests wanting to upgrade their tickets. We are incredibly sorry if this was not clearly communicated, and if someone incorrectly advised you that an early arrival would equate to a window seat.  While it is worth asking for, last minute window seating is not guaranteed without purchase of the upgrade, and is, as you mentioned, first come first serve depending on availability. Our partners let us know that while the crew on board does aim to accommodate all requests, there may have been multiple requests to various crew members that day which led to a bit of confusion as to which customers were the primary request.  Our cruise partners are usually so wonderful, and we are very sorry that the request was not addressed as promised. They work diligently to serve all guests with excellence, and extend their apologies if this was not the case on your cruise.  Additionally, it seems that there may have been some over-eager guests aboard that were willing to break the rules to snag different seating. We appreciate your cooperation with the crew members, and for being so courteous to other guests. It truly speaks to your character as wonderful people!  Please note, we have placed a $50.00 credit in you Cloud 9 Living account. You can access this by logging into your Cloud 9 Living account, then clicking "My Vouchers." We look forward to getting you out on another experience soon!  Best, Sophia
    Okay. They need to tidy up the ship inside. Second floor not used but for a couple of games and walking through to get to top deck. That is okay but should make it presentable. Doors open where things are stored. Extra chafing dishes laying around.
    It was a beautiful evening, great food, smooth sailing.
    It was a very nice night!! And our waitress was a singer... wish I remembered her name!! She was great. We took our grandchildren and they had a great experience. Even at the end (getting off the boat) one said wow. The cookie is really fresh and warm, so cute!! We all enjoyed the night!!
    Great cruise, great food, friendly crew members. Had a great time.
    Food was horrible. Waiter only came to out table once during dinner to take drink orders, and took a half hour to even come to our table the first time.
    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.
    Our overall experience was great! The food was amazing, the people where friendly. We had a great time. I am looking forward to doing it again!
    We had a great time overall. Our service was slow as far as getting our drinks. The employees were very helpful and very friendly. I would definitely recommend you all to my friends and family.
    HAD NO PROBLEMS GREAT EXPERIENCE
    The parking directions weren't easy to follow. We parked in the wrong place and paid quite a bit more. No reflection on the experience, but the directions could've been much better...
    When we got there they had no idea what to do with the email we were told to provide. It took them about 20 mins to figure it out and get us our tickets. It was also advertised on Cloud 9 and on the email as a 3 hour cruise when it was actually only 2 hours. This made us a little disappointed right from the start. The food was not that good either. I feel like it was not worth the money that was spent.
