I was in DC recently on a multi-day business trip which included my birthday. I had heard from friends that Odyssey was a place w/excellent customer service. I have to say they were right. Desiree and Frank along with their staff made sure I felt comfortable and welcome every step of the way. Solo cruise turned out to be an... More

Father's Day Cruise June 21, 2015. Beware that when you book, do so at your own risk. Your cruise may not see any sights. Due to heavy rain the night before, our cruise was not able to sail the north route to Georgetown. That is fine. However, as advertised on the website, the alternate route was supposed to be to...

I was on the Odyssey in Washington, DC for the Bottomless Mimosa Brunch Cruise. I had reservation for 15 guests for my daughter's birthday. I paid $100 extra for better seats but in reality was given seats in a very poor location where the air conditioning was not working. Other sections of the ship were air conditioned. It was an...

Overall, my family enjoyed the experience. I opted for the Sunday Brunch, Bottomless Mimosa cruise. I booked with relative ease on line. I initially purchased an additional beverage add on so we could get a guaranteed window seat. I planned to purchase another one prior to the cruise so both my son and daughter would have unlimited drinks. A few... More

We were very disappointed in the cruise. The food was good, the music nice, but we boarded and after we were out on the Potomac, the Captain announced that because of high tides, we wouldn't be taking the cruise we purchased. Instead, we sailed around in circles going past the same places for the entire cruise. We spent over $600... More

My husband surprised me with this cruise for my birthday. We had each been on the Odyssey many years ago for group outings before we met. We had an amazing time celebrating my birthday, and we enjoyed the company of a couple who was seated next to us. This was all DESPITE several disappointing aspects of the cruise itself. The...

I booked this cruise as a gift to my husband for his birthday. We had a wonderful time! The food was excellent with both breakfast and lunch selections available, and bottomless Mimosas were a real plus! Plenty of time to eat and enjoy the scenery outside, and the entertainment inside was top notch! The staff even got involved with the... More

I took a large group of teenage students on a cruise. There was a DJ and dancing . The DJ basically just played music and did not involve the kids. No dance contest, no little prizes for them. The volume of the music was the same when they served dinner and when they were dancing. I was not happy with... More
