About the Spirit of Norfolk

The Spirit of Norfolk is a luxurious cruise ship that sails in all weather year round, thanks to their two enclosed, climate-controlled decks. Each enclosed deck houses a sound system and dance floor, and every deck offers a full bar for the convenience of the cruise guests. The ship has a capacity of up to 410 guests.

Attire - Dinner Cruises are business casual, and all other cruises are relaxed casual.

Seating - Seating is cruise style, and tables accommodate 4-8 people. Guests are sometimes seated with other parties.

Things to See:

Nauticus - This Maritime-themed science center was opened to the public in 1994 and features interactive theaters, aquariums, hands-on exhibits and many educational programs. The second floor houses the Hampton Roads Naval Museum, and the third floor houses a shark lab, horseshoe crab touch tank, aquariums, a weather station and Science on a Sphere.
Monitor/Merrimack Battle Site - Also known as the Battle of the Ironclads, the Battle of Hampton Roads was the most noted and most important naval battles of the American Civil War from the viewpoint of the navies. It was fought over two days in 1862 with no clear victor. It was the first meeting in combat of ironclad warships USS Monitor and CSS Virginia.
Norfolk Southern Coal Terminals - The Norfolk Southern-Pier 6 is the largest and fastest coal exporting facility in the Northern Hemisphere, and is a branch of Lambert's Point. The facility can accommodate approximately 6,200 loaded rail-cars and is capable of dumping 1,200 cars daily.
Old Fort Norfolk - Fort Norfolk is the last remaining of 19 harbor-front forts set in motion in 1794 by George Washington. It covers 4 acres and overlooks the Elizabeth River, and houses ramparts, a dungeon, officers' quarters, barracks, and a guardhouse along with other features. The fort helped in the War of 1812 by protecting the city of Norfolk.

Reviews
The booking was very easy and confirmation was given the next day (although i'm used to an almost immediate confirmation number). Perhaps the time lag between booking and confirmation can be improved. I was happy that the ticket booth was near the ship for ease of boarding. The crew was friendly. The food good. However, i got the feeling the ship was overcrowded due to the lack of safe walking space between tables. I am a thin guy and i brushed by other guests' heads or chairs just by walking past them. The thought of overcrowding was kind of confirmed when the crew admitted that they had run out of plates for hungry guests who were in the food line. Speaking of food, the desserts were miles away from what was advertised. Altogether, my date and i had a good time. The music and the dj were very good and the musical selections provided a variety for everyone's tastes, i believe. I think that a goodbye from our hostess as we prepared to dock would have been in good order because she was very good in attending to the beverage needs at our table. Might i suggest only square tables on board? The big round table that seated 8 of us also wasted a lot of unused space in the middle. Two four-tops would have been better at seating 8 people and would have saved much needed square footage for walking space. Please give my best to the captain. He provided us with a smooth ride even when the tides became a bit choppy! Will i book this cruise again? You betcha!
