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.

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...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...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.

If you want to do a military discount, I suggest calling. If you book online, there is a 20% discount with an online code. If you book the window seat, you will get it.
