Nice boat ride on the river. Beautiful view of the city. And the dinner was very good. The staff was nice, boat was clean. Absolutely a tour to remember.

Having a great time dancing the night away. Great food buffet. Staff is on the ball and everywhere. Cannot feel the boat moving for the vibration in the folks on the dance floor. Looking out at the night lights once in awhile.

Lon boat ride along a Potomac looking at the monuments. There is good food and music played all night. There is a dance floor, and a sky deck. Fun night.

We are local so can take advantage of these as folks visit. Go to their website to look at the Brunch, Dinner, Mount Vernon, and Holiday Options... if you want to see the monuments you need the "Odessy" ship as the others are too big. Parking is a challenge due to major waterfront construction, but worth the fight. We especially... More

Had a voucher for 2-1 brunch cruise on the Potomac River on a sunday. Smooth sailing, tasty brunch items. Server wasn't overly interested in serving us, I only received one glass of juice and wasn't offered anything else. They also run out of scrambled eggs just as our section of the boat got up to have food. Had to wait... More

Attentive and friendly staff. Food very delicious..... Buffet style. Two hour lunch cruise is worth the money we paid. Cruise is ideal for Birthdays, Anniversaries or any special occasion. The only concern that we had was parking. The parking garage is two blocks away. However, we received a parking voucher and only paid $3.00 for parking. The total parking fee... More

Attended courtesy of my employer. 100 guests from conference were treated to this dinner cruise. The Buffett dinner was plentiful and tasty . The dessert table was spectacular . The most memorable part was the staff and crew. Each greeted you with a big smile. Very good DJ. Everyone seemed to enjoy their job.
