Room With a View: Spirit of Philadelphia

Organizational events and meetings are often vitally important to group success and cohesion, but rarely memorable experiences. Spirit of Philadelphia seeks to change that by offering a completely customizable event experience—on water. The Spirit of Philadelphia cruise ship can accommodate meetings, company outings and client events in a memorable, modern setting. It boasts three climate-controlled decks and an open-air rooftop lounge. In addition to offering lunch and dinner events, Spirit of Philadelphia can host late-night occasions, or “moonlight cruises.” Groups are able to reserve their own private deck or the entire ship, which can hold up to 550 people.

For a more private setting, groups can rent out The Freedom Elite, a separate yacht capable of hosting up to 110 people. Both ships promise one thing: unprecedented views. “You cruise down the Delaware River and see the Philadelphia skyline like never before,” says Sophie Schwartz, marketing coordinator. “We are a floating event and that sets us apart.” Spirit of Philadelphia previously served as host to large com- panies including Comcast and Herbalife, in addition to hosting various local uni- versities. The ship cruises year-round.
