We went on the cruise for a corporate event with 100+ people. Great service, flow of beer and selection/quality of food. Lots of space to mingle and talk to colleagues inside and out. Neat venue but not spectacular like the NYC dinner cruises. If I did this as a tourist, I'd have been disappointed as we didn't get that close... More

We recently went on the Odyssey cruise while visiting Washington DC and enjoyed the experience. The boat is very nice, we took the dinner tour. The food was good and plentiful. My husband ordered the short ribs and I had the chicken. The starter trio was great, as well as the desserts. The band only played a few songs, which... More

We opted to spend the day at Mount Vernon via a cruise down the Potomac River. The day was absolutely perfect. The cruise took about 1 1/2 hours each way, the views were stunning and we wished the cruise lasted longer. A definite must have experience if you are visiting D.C.

We took the Odyssey lunch cruise on April 8. We arrived by train at Union Station in DC and needed transportation to the boat dock. The closest bus stop near the dock was to far to walk so instead we used Uber. Very reasonable compared to a taxi. I took my Mom who suffers from severe arthritis in her knees.... More

I was nervous about shelling out so much money after reading the reviews, but our experience ended up wonderful. Took seven members of my family on the Cherry Blossom brunch cruise, and we were celebrating my daughter and niece's birthdays. Lucked out on having a stunning day for the blossoms. The staff was delightful. Our mimosas were topped off often,... More

The people were very efficient and friendly until you told them the salmon was cold. Things turned a little chilly after that. We were with a large group and three other groups were there also. It was very noisy and cramped quarters. Many of the people at our table and around us only ate part of their entrees because they... More

Our lunch cruise was part of a bus trip to Washington to see the Cherry Blossoms. The service was excellent and the food was tasty. Views along the river were nice. My only complaint is we were not able to hear the tour narration clearly due to the location of the speakers.

This was a lot of fun for a week day. We were guests so I do not know what the tickets cost, but I know that they were purchased through Groupon and considered by locals a good value. We boarded about 11 am for a noon cruise. The staff was kind and helpful. We were greeted at the door with... More

The cruise is 45 minutes long. The problem is that the time you are actually sailing on the Potomac River is about 20 because the rest is getting out of the Washington Channel. You don't even get to see any monuments or anything that could interest a tourist. We payed $130 for 2 adults and 2 kids. We definitely do... More
