www.ParamusPost.com was invited to partake of a cruise on the Spirit Of New Jersey on Wednesday, April 17th from Weehawken. The invitation stated that it was a Spring Showcase cruise and that it was a festive yacht! Aye, that it is! It was a beautiful evening on which to sail the Hudson River and gaze at the Empire State Building and the Freedom Tower construction. Then down to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. For the Showcase, this was the return point and we wended our way back to the Spirit Of New Jersey berth at 1500 Harbor Boulevard.
Staff came around and offered personalized tours of the ship. Director of Marketing Paul Owen welcomed the two hundred and thirty passengers just before the start of the river voyage at 6:30 PM. Most affable, he introduced your reporter to Melisia Douglas, the Marketing Manager who answered several poignant questions. Paul suggested the Spirit Of New Jersey as an apt place to hold a party, convention or a group get together. They even do weddings!
It was a satisfied group that disembarked from the ship and many were heard to be saying that they would return with their organizations. For information contact http://www.spiritofnewjersey.com/v or http://www.entertainmentcruises.com/city/New-York/home .
