Mother's Day is a perfect time for a family brunch, but taking it up a notch by brunching on a ship with Philadelphia views is sure to knock Mom's socks off. Chicken fontina or wild Alaskan salmon in a restaurant can please Mom's palate, but sup on those items while cruising the Delaware River and Philadelphia's historic waterfront becomes the backdrop for a Mother's Day to remember.
Choose from three cruises during the day that include all-you-can-eat gourmet buffets that include fresh salads, a carving station, entries, sides, and desserts. DJ entertainment is provided for your dining and dancing pleasure. Be sure to go topside with your drinks to enjoy the outdoor deck of the ship, which is touted as the largest outdoor deck in Philadelphia.
The ship is docked at Penn's Landing, where you can enjoy a walk along the waterfront before the cruise. Boarding is half an hour before the ship sails, with the cruise lasting about two hours. The evening cruise will provide the best nighttime views of the city, but earlier cruises may be best if little ones are along for the ride.
Make your reservations as soon as possible, otherwise you'll be telling Mom about the time she almost took a dinner cruise.
