This is how your evening will unfold:

Welcome Aboard – You’ll know you’re in for a special evening the moment you step aboard our elegant decks and are escorted to your candlelit table. Many tables are designed for cabaret-style seating with other guests, reminiscent of ocean-going cruises. Order drinks, then feel free to explore the ship while the crew casts off for three fabulous hours on Washington Harbor.

Bon Appetit – Your waiter will invite you to the Grande Buffet Dinner, where you can sample a little bit of everything, or just select your favorite fare. Everything is freshly prepared in the shipboard galley and served in the true manner of an ocean-going cruise buffet.

Oh, Beautiful – Savor your culinary selections over perfectly-paced dinner music and a never-ending view of DC’s historic harbor seen through the huge panoramic windows. Truly, a sight you won’t soon forget.

Live Entertainment – While you relax over coffee and dessert, Spirit’s Broadway-quality performers will dazzle you with song and dance on the center stage. These exciting entertainers are among the finest “rising stars” in the city, so take a good look. You’re sure to see them on television, stage or film in the near future!

Stroll Under The Stars – After the show, take your drinks topside and relax on the largest outdoor patio deck in the city while DC’s historic waterfront spreads before you in all directions. It’s the perfect pause before the pulsing beat of Spirit’s dance tunes entices you onto the dance floor.

Rock The Boat – Spirit’s dinner cruises spotlight some of the hottest DJs in the city, who for nearly two hours, will spin your favorite tunes and let you rock ’til she docks – literally. The perfect end to the perfect night.
