We thought it would be good, it was AMAZING!
We cannot express how glad we are that we chose the Spirit of Norfolk as our wedding venue. Our coordinator, Katherine, guided us through the entire process and was a life saver on the day of the event, as we ran into challenges in our attempts to make everything perfect. Our ceremony at dusk on the Sky Deck is the stuff dreams are made of. The venue inside the ship for the reception was first class. And the food, our friends and family are still raving about. And being a DJ myself, I must give a shout out to DJ Jerritt. He executed the music for the ceremony & reception perfectly. Our waitstaff was top notch, too. The Spirit of Norfolk is the venue for a wedding superior to any other. And the pricing is excellent.

For us it was so much fun! They make it easy. We could not have picked a better venue. They do so much & make it so easy. I didn't have to worry about food, they have a Buffet, & it was good, we didn't have to worry about a DJ, their DJ was wonderful! They worked with our cake bakery so we had the cake we wanted. They worked with us so we got the photographer we wanted. Everything was wonderful! We Love the Spirit of Norfolk!
The Spirit of Norfolk and her employees are amazing! I officiate weddings on the Spirit of Norfolk every year, and am never disappointed in the level of service they provide to my couples. When a bride asks me for a unique venue recommendation, I often suggest the Spirit, especially when they want a " no-hassle" experience. They provide the ceremony location, the reception venue, entertainment, and great food. The coordinators are always "on point" and attentive to the couple's every need. The staff makes sure all events start promptly on schedule so the couple can maximize their party's private time before the other passengers are boarded for the cruise. If you are looking for a unique venue, The Spirit of Norfolk is definitely a great choice!
