If you live in the Tri-State area (NY, NY, CT) or even in Eastern PA, you might be interested in a really nice giveaway in honor of Spirit of New York Cruise Lines 25th Anniversary. I’m giving away two tickets to the winner’s choice of cruise (except holiday or themed cruises).
Spirit offers passengers three levels that are climate controlled (so you won’t freeze in the Winter or sweat in the summer). The ship also have over sized windows so you can take in the breathtaking views of Manhattan and the surrounding area. You can even stroll around the deck for some fresh air and even more amazing views of the Hudson River.
One of the things on my “Bucket List” was to go up in a Helicopter. I considered it “bonus points” if I was able to see Manhattan from a Helicopter. Last year I knocked two things off my Bucket List in one day – I went on a Helicopter and saw Manhattan from above, and I went on a hot air balloon ride (both in the same day!).
I’ve been in Manhattan, and I’ve flown above Manhattan, but I’ve never been “around” Manhattan via the Hudson River. That is something I added on my Bucket List after I saw the photos my daughter took from the cruise line.
My daughter has been on a Spirit Cruise for her friend’s birthday. She has seen TWO Broadway plays (with chorus at school). Two things that I really want to do. I’m jealous!
Spirit is run by Entertainment Cruises.
One of the reasons why I want to go on an the Entertainment Cruise is so I can capture amazing photos of New York City.
Check out these photos that my daughter took when she was on the Spirit Cruise ship(her first name is the same initial as mine – and yes, she’s an amazing photographer).
She snapped these photos with a little pocket camera. I wonder how pictures would come out with my Nikon?
My daughter was on the dinner cruise with her friends (and the birthday girl’s parents). Both lunch and dinner cruises are available with Spirit of New York.
Entertainment Cruises offer lunch cruises, dinner cruises, holiday cruises and themed cruises. Your ticket not only gets you on board one of the beautiful ships but it also covers your cost of food and entertainment.
Each cruise offers you a meal from the Grande Buffet with includes a bountiful array of salads, entrees and side dishes. Of course no delicious meal would be complete without dessert. Appetizers and cocktails are also available for purchase (not included in the ticket price). Coffee, tea, ice tea and water are complimentary.
Dinner cruises also include live entertainment. At night your talented server staff will delight you with unique solo performances of some of your favorite songs. From line dances to Top-40 hits, Spirit’s DJs know how to get everyone up and dancing and rock the night away.
You can finish your meal or your evening with a lovely stroll across the deck to take in the sights and sounds of Manhattan and New Jersey.
I checked out their holiday cruises. WOW! If I had the $$$$ I would take my family to the New Year’s Eve cruise or the Christmas Eve cruise. They make both nights truly memorable. Some day I’ll do that with either my family or just my hubby.
The cruises are family friendly (lunch and dinner cruises). You might want to check on the specifics for holiday and theme cruises just to be on the safe side. Alcohol is available for purchase on the ships.
The Spirit Cruise ship sound like a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to going on a cruise with my family someday soon.
