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

I've seen a lot of great reviews of this cruise, but we were largely unimpressed. The meal was average (generously), and the service tried hard but just couldn't get anything right. It's certainly scenic, and a unique way to see DC. BUT... It's just not something we would do a second time, and it felt over-priced for what it is.... More

Prices at the dock are higher than advertised on the internet. They advertise a guaranteed window seat then tell you that no more are available after boarding. Salad had a remnant of a store label still on tomato. Menu was soiled. Trip was about 25 minutes shorter than advertised with no explanation and the boat docked with the band still... More

If it was possible to give 100 starts I would! Here is my experience... I wanted to try something new for my anniversary in so I took a chance on the Odyssey. It was a chilly and rainy night but I made my way down to SW DC. When I arrived I was told that the boat had been brought... More

Had a fun Fourth & saw the fireworks on this cruise. The bands were great. They had a nice local (Virginia) wine list. Food was good, especially when trying to prepare for so many people in a short amount of time. The only slight down side was rather slow drink service. Staff is very professional

Went on the Sunday Brunch bottomless Mimosa cruise. Our table appeared to be added, it was on the dance floor beside the buffet. While eating people were constantly bumping and jostling us while we tried to eat. The waiter complained that everyone was eating at the same time, yet he only needed to supply beverages and remove used plates. While... More
