Booked because we both enjoy water, my friend and I were looking forward to the sights of DC. We were greeted and seated by Chante and enjoyed both her humor and professional service. We enjoyed champagne cocktails, excellent food, and live music. I had the short ribs with a tangy sauce and my friend had the herb crusted salmon. Both... More

I have taken several Odyssey brunch cruises, most recently for my grandson's birthday. The food is quite good, considering that they are serving hundreds of people. There's lots of variety, from good buns and bagels to salads, side dishes, chicken and a beef carving station. After the main meal, there are desserts such as cheesecake, pies, and fruit to dip...

We did the Valentine's day cruise several years ago when we first started dating and a wonderful time. We recently got married and thought it would be charming to return... DON'T, STAY AWAY! It got interesting very quickly as we were one of the groups seated relatively early. The dinner staff came around and took orders, brought rolls, and butter... More

My wife and I went for the New Years Eve cruise. We were promptly escorted to our table. The staff were friendly. Service was a little slow, and it appeared as if they were understaffed. The drinks were watered down, possibly for the best. The food was fair. We didn't receive our dessert despite requesting it twice. A majority of... More

I am always hesitant about the meals on these cruises as a whole - not this specific brand. This was a great time. The views of the city were exceptional from the river and something I most certainly would do again. The food was better than expected and actually was quite nice. This is a great experience for couples, a... More

My son and family booked an evening on the Odyssey for my husband and I's 70th birthdays. The evening cruise was a wonderful surprise and a lovely touch of flowers for me on the table. The meal was great with plenty of choice and was well presented. The cruise was 3 hours which gave us time to stroll out and... More

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. .

Hi - We feel awful that you were so disappointed by your cruise with us. It is never our intention for our guests to leave unhappy. The safety of our passengers and crew is always our top concern, and unfortunately the tide on the particular day of your cruise severely impacted our ability to fit under the 14th street bridge...

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
