Some options for one-night dinner cruises are those offered by Spirit Cruises in Boston, New York City, Chicago, Baltimore, Norfolk, Philadelphia and Washington D.C., notes the company's official website.

One option with Spirit Cruises is its "Spirit of Boston" cruise on Boston Harbor, which features DJ entertainment, drinks, food and activities. The ship has three climate-controlled interior decks that offer panoramic views of the harbor and city. There is a topside pen-air rooftop deck, full-service bar and floor space for dancing. The dinner menus offer passengers both vegetarian and gluten-free options.

Those in the New Orleans area can take a two-hour dinner cruise on the Mississippi River with the Steamboat Natchez. This cruise offers buffet-style dining and both indoor and outdoor seating. Guests enjoy views of the city, museum-quality Engine Room and live jazz by the "Dukes of Dixieland," as of 2015.
