WEEHAWKEN, N.J., April 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Entertainment Cruises, the largest harbor cruise company in the United States, today announced the completion of a $1.5 million renovation of the Spirit of New Jersey. Offering a striking and modern new design as well as fresh features for both the interior and exterior of the vessel, the Spirit of New Jersey is setting sail just in time for the picturesque spring and summer seasons.
The renovation, which took place over a three month period, features double-paned, anti-fog windows to provide an optimized sightseeing experience from inside the beautiful ship along with LED lights on the dance floor, a DJ booth and new dining chairs to give the already impressive vessel a more contemporary, yet comfortable feel. The renovation also includes two interior bars and one exterior bar, each of which feature LED lights that change color and can be programmed for a custom look and feel for private events. Ideal for upcoming warm weather months, the outdoor observation deck will be converted into a lounge area featuring new deck furniture as well as a bar and plasma televisions, offering the most unique outer deck boat experience in New Jersey.
"After doing business in the New Jersey market for more than 20 years, it was important for us to re-invest in the Spirit of New Jersey in ways that directly enhance the on-board guest experience," said Christine Metivier, vice president and general manager for Spirit Cruises. "The renovation and new modern features help to ensure the Spirit of New Jersey offers the best dining, entertainment and sightseeing experience possible."
The Spirit of New Jersey will celebrate the renovation completion with a unique collection of spring offerings, including Mother's Day and Gospel Lunch cruises, a series celebrating New York City Fleet Week and Tall Ships as well as the 2012 National 9/11 Memorial & Dining Cruise Series.
The Spirit of New Jersey comfortably accommodates up to 400 guests and delivers an exceptional combination of dining, dancing, entertainment and spectacular views. Cruising year-round from Lincoln Harbor in Weehawken, N.J. and Chelsea Piers in Manhattan, Spirit Cruises offers Lunch, Dinner, Cocktail, Moonlight Cruises and much more.
