This is not my first time on the Odyssey Cruises, and for good reason. It has a great environment, our server has always treated us as a welcomed guest. The food was very good as well, and the sights are very nice along the river.

Very unique vessel with plenty of table seating as well as some seating on the deck for taking in the sights. We promptly boarded the ship after waiting only a few minutes in line.

My husband hadn't seen his cousin in 30 years, so when she came to town to visit, we wanted to do something special. We decided on the lunch cruise, and it turned out to be a great choice. The boat was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the staff was friendly and welcoming. The boat has large windows and a... More

The buffet quality was really poor. Lines were long and not something you would expect for a fancy buffet on a cruise. Bottomless mimosas were more of juice, as expected and the coffee was absolutely "terrible"- couldn't drink past the first sip. The ambiance is average and the white table cloth doesn't help. Bathrooms were clean, I still don't know... More

My family and I did the Brunch cruise on the Odyssey to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. From the time we stepped on the boat, to the time we got off, is was an amazing experience! The staff was very attentive and friendly and kept the mimosas coming! The food was very delicious and we had a variety of items... More

I thought we would be closer passing by the monuments. We had upgraded to a window table which is not necessary. My husband's short ribs were very good, but my crab cakes were much too salty. Our server, Lucy, did a fine job. The wine list is poor. The believe the value is not there.

I've seen DC from the streets, but from the water is an experience on its own. Viewing DC with Odyssey is taking the experience to another level. The staff is amazing and you feel a very warm welcome from the entrance of the gate to the vessel itself. The food is great and you'll feel like in a high-end restaurant.... More

The food was absolutely amazing. We had Mimosas coming non stop. The servers were excellent. Buffet style. Great selection of food. The salmon was amazing. Lots of fruit, breakfast meats, muffins, desserts galore. The band was amazing. People were dancing the whole time.

My wife and I were on a trip to Washington, D. C. and wanted a special night, so we booked a dinner cruise on the Odyssey. Boarding went very smoothly a did the seating, dinner, and after dinner dancing. I had the short ribs and my wife had the salmon. Both excellently prepared. The entertainment--a trio--was very good and during... More
