nice trip around Washington. It was fun time and we enjoyed seeing Washington DC from the water. The boat went down to Georgetown / Washington Harbor and then back. A quick 3 hour trip with good food and entertainment

We took the champagne brunch cruise, we were unable to get under the bridge to take the northern cruise. Therefore missing the monuments up close. They blamed it on the tide. Check prior to booking, the southern route gave you a view of Regan airport, we were disappointed. .

17 of us took the lunch cruise (2hrs) from the pier at 600 water street on Thursday, 4 December 2014. The ship holds 720. Our party was one of several. We had good background music from a live band and some of our group even danced. The experience was well worth it. The cuisine was excellent, as was the service... More

I booked this cruise months ago as a gift for my friend to celebrate her retirement. My husband took me on this trip last year and it was wonderful. We arrived with confirmation in hand for our cruise last week to be told that our dinner cruise had been cancelled so that a corporate function could be accommodated. Apparently an... More

My fiance also got the package with roses, champagne, and souvenir champagne glasses- a nice addition. :) I had reservations about... More

Oh we had so much fun on the brunch cruise (there was a wedding too at the same time). The food was really good and had a goo time dancing on the board.

I have nothing but high praise this activity. The food was great, the service I received from Chante and Jonoy was nothing short of stellar, and the views of the Washington from the Potomac were beautiful on an early fall evening. There was a live band providing terrific music during dinner and for dancing afterward. On a stroll around the... More

We were treated to a luncheon cruise aboard the Odyssey as part of our employee of the year festivities recently! The sights and views of the river were simply stunning! The food and entertainment were also amazing. The band kept us entertained and filled the cabin with great music and created a festive and celebratory mood. The staff and crew... More

I cannot recommend this cruise for anyone under the age of 50 -- and I'm 54! Booked the dinner cruise on a Sunday night to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries with our adult children on a recent trip to D.C. -- was looking for something special! What was good - attitude and response of staff was positive and welcoming. They really... More

I truly loved this experience. A delightful barge ride up and down the Potomac. The meal was absolutely delicious, the crew/servers were friendly and dancing to live music while watching the sun go down was a delight.
