Dinner cruises in Norfolk, Virginia, home to one of the country's largest Navy bases, generally ply the gentle waters of the Elizabeth River, where visitors can watch tugs, barges and Navy ships moving in and out of Hampton Roads Harbor, one of the largest harbors in the world. Norfolk's historic downtown waterfront is right on the banks of the river, and serves as home base for most of the tour boats that offer dinner cruises. Dinner cruises also are available 13 miles south in the waters off Virginia Beach.

Spirit of Norfolk

Visitors to Norfolk enjoy nightly buffet dinner cruises aboard the Spirit of Norfolk, a yacht moored at The Waterside in downtown Norfolk. The three-hour cruises navigate the Elizabeth River. Dinner menus include such entrees as chicken fontina and wild Alaskan salmon; a carving station serves roasted rosemary beef and smoked ham. Guests are given one hour to eat their meals before a pair of DJs start spinning dance hits. The top deck of the ship is open, and on clear nights guests are encouraged to take a break from the dance floor and cool down with a drink while gazing at the stars. Three-hour "early dinner" cruises also are available.

With its trademark red sails, the tall ship American Rover has been a familiar sight in Norfolk since 1986.

The American Rover has various catering, bar service and entertainment options available. Dinner menus can range from light snacks to full gourmet meals, served either sit-down or buffet style. Dinner and other cruises depart from downtown and then head up the Elizabeth River and through Hampton Roads Harbor.
