We took the dinner cruise with just two of us. We've done multiple dinner cruises in various locations, this was the most expensive and the worst experience we've had. First the cost is insane, the charge an "executive fee" using higher than average wages for exception service workers. They were very friendly but the service stunk! First, they forgot our... More

Went on Sunday brunch mimosa cruise. Left 20 minutes late but came back right on time. The biggest thing is that we never saw one monument--guess they couldn't get under the bridge or something. It sounds like this is a frequent event and a person should be told this is a possibility when you book. So the upcharge cost for... More

To be honest, we were skeptical. We have had not-great experiences with this same company in Boston. This boat/cruise/staff blew us away! It was the PERFECT way to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We really enjoyed the food - and they were very helpful/accommodating with my gluten allergy - the chicken was delicious. We danced the night away and never wanted... More

I read the reviews and was reticent to reserve this cruise. I am thankful that I did. The vessel is beautiful. Every seat provides a view along the scenic route. The food options were more than anticipated and the entertainment was superb. The jazz band was worth the price of the cruise alone. Cruised to Georgetown pass the Kennedy Center... More

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

We took the brunch cruise on Sunday the food was fabulous there were some beautiful views unfortunately the tides were high and we could not navigate under any bridges. It seemed a bit pricey not to get to see the monuments etc. I guess this is not the fault of the cruise line but seems maybe this price should be... More
