What people are saying about Virginia

We chose the Spirit of Norfolk to celebrate my sister's 40th Birthday and it was a Great night. The cruise staff, food and the crowd was Awesome. I would definitely recommend to others and I definitely will be going back more often to have a great time. Thank you Spirit of Norfolk for all you do!!!

I liked the fact that everything in the meal was labeled. I have allergies and it was easy to eat - for once! The meal was good. I was not crazy about being seated in the middle of the room when there were seats by the window, but we went upstairs after we ate

It was sooo beautiful. I surprised my boyfriend for his birthday. The food was very good. The ride was so smooth and the staff very friendly. We are going back for New Years Eve.

Loved it. The captain even waited 5 minutes to depart for my friend who was running late to the cruise.

The cruise was very nice. The music, food, and customer service was great. We had a wonderful time.
