    For this experience, our partners are taking extra measures to prevent any potential spread of COVID-19. In those jurisdictions where it is required, all guests over the age of 18 are required to provide their full name and email address prior to boarding the vessels. Guests who self-report they are experiencing any symptoms indicative of COVID-19 will not be permitted to board our partner's vessel. All guests ages 3 and older are required to wear face coverings at all times while on board our vessels, except while dining, unless exempted by the local health authority. Our partners request that each guest face mask fully cover an individual’s nose and mouth and allow the guest to remain hands-free. They also require that the mask fit snugly against the side of the face, be secured with ties or ear loops, and be made of breathable material. Guests who do not have a face mask will not be permitted to board the vessel. If you have travelled internationally in the last 14 days, the CDC advises that you should stay at home and avoid contact with others. Additionally in those jurisdictions where it is required, guests will undergo temperature screening prior to boarding. Based on guidance from health authorities, anyone displaying a temperature of 100.4 F or above will not be allowed entry; those in their party will not be allowed entry either.

    “It was classy and fun and buffet was good”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi there George!  Thanks so much for letting us know!  Our partners aim to put on a truly spectacular event, and I am so excited to hear that your Baltimore Harbor Lunch Cruise was just that!  Best, Sophia
    “Was ok music was ok small floor was windy out so couldn't enjoy the view from outside Our waitress was great but the drinks was very expensive”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Thanks for writing in about your lunch cruise. I'm sorry to hear the weather wasn't the most cooperative while you were out on the water. Despite that, I'm glad you had great service and hopefully had great company on board. Please, let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Enjoy your weekend!  Best, Brooke
    “My husband and I scheduled our cruise on what happened to be a super rainy day. The staff was nice and accommodating. Unfortunately, We were not able to enjoy the indoor portion of the second floor, due to a scheduled wedding. It limited what where we could go on the boat - and because it was raining outside - we weren't able to fully enjoy the decks. Food was great and drinks were tasty!”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Thanks for writing in. I'm sorry to hear Mother Nature wasn't the most cooperative during your cruise. Despite the crummy weather, that's great to hear you had accommodating service and delicious food. We would love to get you out on a better day, so I have added $25 to your Cloud 9 Living account for a future experience. Best, Brooke
    “Food was great/ staff courteous and polite but was expecting more. Narration of the history of Baltimore as we cruised and saw scenes, games after eating or something besides food and music! We have been on similar cruises and do much more is possible.”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Thanks for writing in. I'm sorry to hear that the cruise missed its mark in regards to your expectations. This cruise does only offer lunch and musical entertainment on board, but I will be sure to pass along your comments to our product team to see if we can better address this in our description.  I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the food and had great service, though. Please note that I have placed $25 in your Cloud 9 Living account to use towards another experience.  Best, Brooke
    “Excellent cruise, food and staff!”
    “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”
    “I did a lunch cruise on the Spirit of Baltimore. It was fabulous. We were welcomed immediately by our server, the atmosphere was incredible. The food was delicious, the music great and the staff and crew friendly. I have already told my friends and i will be returning soon.”
    “Loud speaker system, to the point the waitress had to repeat several times what our experience would be and ask what we wanted to drink. The entertainment was terrible. All waitress sang (screamed) a song as part of the entertainment. The sound system again. Not to fault the waitress, but they can't sing! Cheap entertainment to say the least. The food was passible, but if I had my way (this was a gift, by the way), I would NOT recommend this to my worst enemy.”
