Okay but could be much better. Most of the staff weren't friendly at all. The people at the concessions were borderline rude. Upstairs deck holds few people and it is hard not to be blocked by people standing if you are sitting at the supplied...More

This is a great way to visit Mount Vernon. The waterfront was only a few blocks from our hotel, so we were able to walk to the pier the cruise departs from. It was a great way to see some historic landmarks and other points...More

I cannot imagine a better way to visit Mount Vernon than this. Arriving and departing via the Potomac was relaxing, quiet, and beautiful. Based on the crowds in and around the estate itself, I cannot imagine the same can be said for arriving by parking...More

Sorry, it was a part of our pkg (one drink included with a souvenir glass). I can't really help with your situation since I don't know how much the upgrade is, length of cruise, etc.

I went on the Thanksgiving Lunch Cruise and that was $44.95 per child, ages 3-12. Adults were more.
