Very nice waited was great and the food was good for buffet. Ship was big and enough room for all especially on the upper deck and loved the roof on top as it rained a tiny bit but wasn’t a factor with roof. Worth the money as the views were picturesque

A Great Buffet Lunch on the Water

We had a lovely time on the Spirit of New York 2-Hour Lunch Buffet Cruise. The only negative was the weather which of course was no fault of the cruise! We arrived soaking wet and was cold during the cruise. The food was delicious and the staff were courteous. We would certainly recommend this lunch cruise.

This is a pleasant lunch cruise experience, very suitable for family holiday celebrations. The cruis

This is a very pleasant experience. We and three of us came to New York from far away Beijing for the first time. We were fortunate enough to join the New York Spirit Cruise for lunch. We were very satisfied. The cruise ship terminal is close to Metro Line 1 and the bus station M12, which is very convenient. Located in the center of the century-old Cho'erxi Wharf, it is also close to the Cho'erxi Market. After we get off the cruise, we can go to the Cho'erxi Market to buy lobster, king crab and big crayfish. The harvest is very fruitful. It is worth mentioning that the buffet provided on the cruise is very rich, with salads, hot stir-fry, chicken, fish, desserts, everything. The paid drinks are also very full, including red and white wines, various cocktails, and the Bloody Mary ordered by mother and lover is very good, but it is a pity that they are not used to drinking it for the first time. Take a two-hour cruise on the Hudson River, watch the Statue of Liberty and Ellis
