We booked this 45 minute tour of the cherry blossom online. I thought we would be the only ones on the boat since the trees did not bloom yet. The boat was half full. Nothing to see since the trees were not in bloom. Not the boat's fault. The only thing I can recommend is not to park in the... More

As a native Washingtonian, I've been on the Odyssey many times, but the last time was probably 10 years ago. My husband and I decided to give it another try, taking my adult niece with us. First, let me say, the administration booking fees are very high, and I am not sure why. For three, the fees were over $50,... More

Went on the Odyssey cruise for our family of five to celebrate a birthday. The hostess was nice greeting and seating us, but just like the other reviews had pointed out, we feel neglect by the waiter during the whole meal time. Some of the utensils were very dirty that we had to ask the waiter to change them, and... More

I booked a cruise for 4 ladies to celebrate my sister's 32nd birthday. We could not have been happier with our choice. From the time we stepped foot on the premises, we were greeted by friendly staff (except for the lady at the ticket window...she was courteous but not extra friendly like EVERYONE else). The photographers, the greeters when we... More

I'd been on a summer time cruise, but we decided to try their new years eve event. It sells out early and its expensive, but I think it was totally worth it. The boat was nice, the crew really helpful and attentive, the tables were nicely set up (all that usual new year stuff) and the food and music were... More

I have been on this dinner cruise several times both for the nighttime and lunchtime over the past decade and the most recent experience was disappointing. On the positive side: +the view is always good +the sites were good but they are better at night and they are better when it's low tide because you can go all the way... More

Ship was very nice. Fancy. Dress nice. Band and DJ were good. Sit down dinner was good. We had a window seat so saw all the sights. Did a Thursday night cruise. Hardly anyone was on ship. A little chilly at night on deck see didn't venture out for too long. Bought the picture. Cost $25. Thought it was very... More

We got a cruise certificate as an anniversary gift. When we arrived, I really had no idea what to expect. We weren't sure if this was a romantic dinner or a party boat as the crowds was mixed, varying in ages from 21 to 80. It was a little dry at first, but once the boat left the dock, it... More

I have to say I was nervous planning our 20 year anniversary date. We've already done so much, but never a dinner cruise. Well, we were not disappointed! I marked the anniversary bubble when booking the cruise online (had a 15% off code from retail me not). I also upgraded to a window seat, which I highly recommend. So, when... More

My husband and I took this cruise for something different for the evening. The food was awesome and we were waited on at our table. Dinner consisted of a first course, main entree, and a dessert. Water, tea and coffee were provided and pop and alcoholic beverages were available for purchase. The band that played was great. They played to... More
