Spirit of Philadelphia Turns 40Philadelphia, PA - For four decades, the Spirit of Philadelphia has graced the Delaware River, offering countless guests an unforgettable way to experience the city skyline.  This spring, City Cruises Philadelphia proudly celebrates the vessel's 40th anniversary and invites everyone to join in the festivities with a spectacular lineup of dining cruises.

 The Spirit of Philadelphia, a three-level yacht, was custom-built in 1988 to navigate the unique conditions of the Delaware River. Its elegant interior, spread across the Ben Franklin, Walt Whitman, and Betsy Ross decks, provides panoramic views while ensuring year-round comfort. A 2019 renovation further elevated the guest experience, making it a premier destination for dining, sightseeing, and special occasions.

"It's an honor to have been part of the Philadelphia community for so long," says Ryan O'Connor, General Manager of City Cruises Philadelphia. "The Spirit is more than just a boat; it's a backdrop for cherished memories, from weddings to anniversaries, and everything in between."

On Thursday, May 2nd, 2024, City Cruises will host an exclusive 40th-anniversary celebration aboard the Spirit. The event promises delectable food, crafted cocktails, and the best views in the city – a tribute to the dedicated crew and countless guests who've made the Spirit of Philadelphia a beloved institution.

Locals and visitors alike can share in the milestone with a fabulous dining cruise. Spring and summer are the perfect seasons to enjoy their Signature Bottomless Mimosa Brunch Cruise or the Signature Dinner Cruise; both offered every weekend. Whether it's a romantic date, family outing, or a lively friend's night out, there's a Spirit of Philadelphia cruise for every occasion.

A Legacy of Memories

From its construction in 1988 to its recent refresh, the Spirit of Philadelphia embodies tradition and innovation. As it sets sail for the next 40 years, it will continue to be a place where new memories are made, laughter echoes across the water, and the Philadelphia skyline shines its brightest. City Cruises invites everyone to raise a glass to this iconic vessel and create their unforgettable moments aboard the Spirit of Philadelphia.
