About this Baltimore, Maryland tour
Gospel music – it's not just for church anymore. This weekend lunchtime cruise on the Spirit of Baltimore is not your typical boat ride around Baltimore's legendary Inner Harbor. Instead, you can listen to a gospel choir belt out the best in spiritual music, all while you feast on a fabulous lunch. You will also see views that will renew your faith in the city.
Your tour starts at the Baltimore Visitor Center on Light Street in the Inner Harbor, where you come aboard our stylish vessel. Our ship has not just two climate-controlled enclosed decks with panoramic windows to keep you comfortable in any weather, but an outdoor rooftop deck that's perfect for breathing in the fresh air. You'll see the best of local skyline views, as well as landmarks like the National Aquarium, Fells Point, and Fort McHenry.
Now, about that gospel music. Whether you prefer those old-time spiritual songs, or spiritual tunes with a modern touch, you'll love hearing a Baltimore choir sing songs of faith. And DJs provide a mix of inspirational music as well. If the spirit moves you, our dance floors are open for you to strut your stuff.
Our Caribbean-style buffet lunch starts with a Market Salad. Caribbean Jerk Chicken, Herb Roasted Chicken, and Blackened Tilapia will make your mouth water. Sides include Buttery Green Beans, Cajun Red Beans and Rice, and Scallion Mashed Potatoes. A decadent dessert is included. Enjoy a beverage – an alcoholic or non-alcoholic one – to go along with your lunch, while you toast your great cruise.
Eubie lying about your age
Eubie Blake was a Baltimore musician who wrote his own jazz and ragtime songs. And the older he got, the more famous Blake became. The 1978 Broadway show Eubie celebrated his music. He also received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Ronald Reagan. But after Blake died in 1983, just five days after celebrating turning 100, the truth came out. He really was born in 1887, making him 96 at the time of his passing.
