This was a great way to travel to Mt. Vernon and there was ample time to stroll the grounds, have lunch and visit the gift store! The shuttle from the pier to the estate was welcomed as the walkway is uphill, but it's not far if you want to take the walk.

From the time we arrived on the cruise ship to when we left our expectations were taken to a new level. The staff was over the top! Such a wonderful way to celebrate any special occasion with family or friends. The food was awesome as well as the service. The entertainment was great!

The atmosphere was very nice with live music and well-prepared buffet. We came for the Mimosa Brunch, and the staff was very attentive - clearing our plates and keeping our glasses full, even when we went out on the deck to take pictures of the view. The interior is comparable to a cruise ship - I would have dressed-up a... More

I took my wife out for a night of something different. The service was spot-on as the servers always made sure we had what we needed and/or wanted, also advising us on what was not included in the price. Both me and my wife enjoyed the food as well. Now the reason for the 4 instead of the 5. The... More

This is so much better than the cruise on the Dandy two years ago. The food is much better and the boat much better maintained. The music on the Odyssey is high quality, initially a trio which played before and during the dinner service, which included a vegan GF option. Then the volume was very appropriate to dining and conversation.... More

This was my sister's treat to show me more of DC. We had a good seating area, right next to the buffet tables. The buffet spread itself was not impressive considering the price being paid. However, the live music was fantastic, with 3 wonderful musicians. They played music that encouraged the guests to dance and have fun on the dance... More

We had so much fun aboard this cruise! We had ages from 8 months to 80 year old and all had fun. The brunch had a nice selection. The music was also good. And of course the sights of DC. along the Potomac were awesome! I can not forget the bottomless mimosa, they indeed were bottomless!! A great outing and... More

Haven't taken the cruise yet but had to post a comment on the booking experience. I was online and the chat person came on who was very helpful in explaining choices. I did tell her that I wanted to see if there were promo codes. She did not respond. I booked for 4 people. After disconnecting with her I saw... More

It was an enjoyable outing on a particularly hot summer day, but well air conditioned boat. The service was exceptional. The food, surprisingly good. Hats off to our server Diamond and to Desiree for being our ' Cruise Director'. I have been on several of these in other cities and it has by far been the best. Well done Odyssey... More
