My daughters planned a surprise 30th Anniversary dinner cruise from my husband and me with many out-of-town guest. We were late to the dock due to unforeseen traffic (Friday night in DC). They held the boat until we arrived about 10 minutes late (THANK YOU) and gave us a terrific celebration. Dancing, great band, good food and beautiful sights. I... More

On a whim we booked a Sunday brunch cruise with Odyssey. From the minute we boarded, were impressed with the friendliness of the staff and the willingness to make the experience unforgettable. We were not expecting much with the food but I must recommend their waffles. I could not stop eating the waffles. I have never had waffles as delicious... More

Went with a group of friends for a birthday celebration. We didn't have one complaint. The captain takes you out around the Potomac for about 2.5 hours. Food was excellent. The appetizer was a tasting trio of shrimp, a summer salad and goat cheese. You have a choice between 5 entrees and 4 desserts. I had the braised beef short... More

This dinner cruise was a nightmare. The air conditioner broke and it was way too hot. The food was sub par. Not worth the price.

Very nice cruise, views were beautiful. Menu variety should be expanded. Music was fantastic. Definitely would cruise again on a return trip to Washington D.C.

The service was terrible. There was some kind of broken pipe which made the entire area smell of sewage. The staff was not only unapologetic but not on the slightest bit accommodating. There was an area of the boat which was clean, air conditioned and fresh smelling and they would not allow us in that area. Furthermore the manager on... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our evening on board the Odyssey cruise! We were greeted by friendly and helpful staff and nothing was too much trouble for them! They stopped for a chat, got to know the diners and we even received a special mention after telling our waitress that we were on our honeymoon. The food was divine! We had a trio... More

The views from the dinner cruise were magnificent. The food was good but not great. The environment and live music made the cruise that much more enjoyable. They have a dance floor near the live music, the dress code was formal, and the growd contained mostly adults 30+ and quite a bit of 55+. There was a stain on one... More
