    “Staff was friendly and there if you needed but not hovering.”
    “This experience was amazing. It is perfect for a date.”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hey Osman, I'm so happy to hear that you had a wonderful date night out on the water cruising around the city. Thanks for sharing!  Best, ​Brooke
    “Food was fine but atmosphere inside rather loud. We had the worst table on the lower deck: the buffet line was snaked all around our table while we were trying to have a romantic night for two, which made for a very awkward dinner-time experience. The view from the outside upper deck was amazing, and we ended up spending most of our time looking at the skyline from there. Once we found out this wonderful spot we had a great rest of our evening, and didn't bother anymore with our terrible table.”
    “Was a gorgeous summer night in Philly and celebrating my gf's 50th. Food was excellent, views from the boat were phenomenal, staff was friendly and courteous, cabin temps were perfect and the music and dancing was an excellent compliment to what already seemed like a perfect venue in celebration.”
    “Nice and clean, DJ was good, some food was cold and rolls were hard but it all tasted good”
    “Our first time, did not know what to expect since this was also a gift to us. The entire trip from booking to getting off the ship was excellent. Food was good, friendly service, good drinks and music. We certainly will do again in the future with friends.”
    “Music was too loud and the tables too close together. Expected waiter or waitress service rather than a buffet. Food was fine. Just not the relaxing cruise dinner that I expected.”
    “Amazing, easy, friendly, awesome night out. Highly recommended.”
    “My wife and I had a great time. When I booked the tickets, I had made some food requests for my wife, stating that she reacts to certain foods and would prefer organic food if at all possible. A representative from the Spirit of Philadelphia called me for more details and said that they normally do not have organic food on board but he would talk with the kitchen chef. When dinner began I helped myself to the wonderful food provided at the buffet and they brought out a separately prepared dish for my wife. She was blown away at the service we were given, and we couldn't have been happier with the staff. It was a great experience and would highly recommend this for future customers. ”
    “Had a wonderful time. Dinner was exceptional, drinks delicious, and dancing a blast.”
    “I would not recommend Spirit of Philadelphia Dinner Cruise. The food was awful. The pasta was dry and bland and the salad was practically gone by the time our table was called. There were cob webs around the dividers of the buffet. When going up for a second time, the food was already being put away and not replenished. The rolls and butter were gone. The outside of the boat was dirty and rusty. It does not look like any daily or weekly upkeep is being done. The staff was friendly and hospitable. The cruise took off within 10 minutes of the scheduled time and returned approx. on schedule. It was a one and done experience for my husband and I. ”
    “Staff were awesome!”
    “We had a great time. The boat was so incredibly smooth, stable, and well piloted that the only way you would know that you were underway was to look out the window at the passing lights. The food was excellent, the drinks top drawer, and the DJ played the crowd to perfection. If you didn't have a good time you were probably dead.”
    “We had a wonderful time and we would highly recommend this experience to others. Thank you for your hospitality. Our server Tari was absolutely wonderful. She was a joy to be around and she made the trip a lot of fun!!”
    “We loved it. The whole experience was SO VERY NICE. We felt very cared for and the food was outstanding. Thank you guys for making my birthday celebration awesome and special. Loved the picture as well.”
    “Our Waitress, Sophia, was very helpful and very nice.”
    “Everything was great, except they charge way too much for drinks. $10.00 is excessive”
    “My wife and i had a great time. We would definitely do it again! Thanks, Doug”
