What People are Saying

Went on their signature dinner cruise at the end of February. Very fun and smooth experience. Parking is next to the dock for $20, literally a few minutes walk to the boat. It’s a covered cruise with a viewing deck, so it’s enjoyable regardless of the weather. It’s a buffet experience and the food tasted great. There is also a love DJ and a dance floor. I plan to come again for a day cruise. - Bijan Abrahim
I attended a wedding on the Rendezvous and wow, It was a wedding I will never forget! I have been to a bunch of weddings in many different extravagant venues, but cruising on the Delaware river stands out from the rest, and for good reason. With city lights illuminating the sky, the party stayed lit from start to finish. I definitely recommend City Cruises Philadelphia to anybody looking for a fun wedding venue that stands out from the rest. - Luke Brubaker
Fun experience, good food and good views. My wife and I went on the cruise for Valentine's day. It was a nice 3 hour cruise with a good buffet selection, comfortable seating. Although cold at this time of year it was nice to be able to sit on the upper deck outside and watch the city line view and the boat cruised up and down the deleware. It was a great time, Id reccomend trying it once. - Brad
