Spirit of Philadelphia will complete renovations by spring

    Well into the second of its two-phase renovation project, the Spirit of Philadelphia will be ready for cruising again by April. The $1.5 million plan is supposed to modernize the Entertainment Cruises ship and add some amenities.

    Aside from new performers, servers and managers, the ship will boast plasma TVs on the decks, a new lit atrium and a dance floor with an open mezzanine and colorful LED lights.

    Spirit of Philadelphia’s renovation is an investment in Philadelphia’s waterfront and our city’s hospitality industry,” said Tom Corcoran, President of the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation, in a release.

    The ship stopped cruising in January, and will resume in April.
