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

The parking lot was full when I arrived 25 minutes before the boat sailed. After being directed to a pay lot and boarding we found our table and then got in line for the brunch. I had to ask for them to replenish the bagels, vinaigrette dressing, and lox. The scrambled eggs were just replenished and were dried out as... More

We did the dinner cruise on the Odyssey with another couple. First the pros- the food was very delicious! The views from the water was so breathtaking. Loved the relaxing atmosphere during dinner. Cons- there is alcohol on board so a few people were tipsy which made for a little wildness after dinner. Which I didn't particularly like but made... More

I'll admit it. At first when my sister booked this tour, I thought, "how good could the food be?" I was mistaken and happily so. The tour itself was well organized and managed as the seats were assigned by table. The cruise itself is separated into two areas, the regular lunch buffet and the endless mimosa brunch buffet. Spend the... More

I sailed on one of their lunch cruises, and had a great time!! The food was good, and the music and the musicians were awesome!! It was during the cherry blossom season, so we had a really nice sail with a beautiful view. I will definitely do this again with my family!!

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
