We had a perfect night for the cruise and really enjoyed ourselves. The only thing that I would improve was the music for dancing. It would have been wonderful to dance on the outdoor level but the music stopped. We were able to get a few...continued

Good experience. Food was pretty good, the cruise was nice. Not sure if I would pay full-price for it but the Goldstar discount was very helpful.

Beautiful Boat, friendly staff. Would cruise again at the Goldstar price, but would not pay retail for this event.

Great for a date night. It was an amazing getaway. It's like being on a mini cruise. The food was EXCELLENT. The staff was great, too. It's a dress up event but that didn't stop any of the fun. It wasn't very crowded, which I liked. The ship went...continued

I read several others' feedback before we purchased tickets for the Dandy, and our experience concurred with what others had said. The event was nice, and we had a lovely evening. It was worth the goldstar price, but would have been...continued

It was VERY nice. We had a birthday bash for two friends and from we entered until we left it was absolutely wonderful. We had top notch service from the wait staff they even sang happy birthday twice. Two people in our group decided to change...continued

We had a very nice dinner--a table by the window-- lovely views (a little weird at first-- big silver sunshades kind of crookedly covered the west windows until the boat started moving), but then the views were great. There is lots to see along...continued

The Dandy boat has seen better days. It's age is really showing. My husband and I sailed on it several times in earlier days. The food was served properly and hot and was pretty good in general. Our waiter was friendly and prompt. It would be...continued

This was an excellent cruise. I took my partner here for her birthday and everything was wonderful. They played a variety of music and even though it rained that day we still had a chance to enjoy the outside deck. The staff was wondeful and so...continued

I was extremely appreciative of the Goldstar discount which made this event affordable for us. (I do not know if I could have booked this event for the regular fee which is a bit pricey!) My 83 year old mother was visiting us from NJ; so my wife &...continued

We had a wonderful time on this cruise!
15 family members (ages 7 to 85) came to celebrate my aunt and uncle's 25th anniversary, and our 5th. :) The food was delicious... we all had different dishes, and everyone was very happy with their food...continued

The cruise was beautiful on such a pretty night and the service was outstanding. The servers could not have been nicer or more efficient. However, I did think the food could have been a bit better; the crab meat in the shrimp tasted like canned...continued

The evening was excellent - the weather made the whole evening! Can't beat a 75-degree clear day with a light breeze as the sun sets over this beautiful city! The Goldstar price is what made the night possible -- it's a little pricey at...continued

Great cruise, wonderful night and a really relaxing time. I've lived in the DC area pretty much all of my life and the views from the water at night were spectacular. My wife and I really enjoyed ourselves. Others should know thought that...continued

It was a nice dinner cruise. We started out with a live piano player at the start of the meal, but the music after dinner was from a CD and included a lot of line dances. As it was our wedding anniversary, we would have liked more slow songs. I...continued

The Baby Grand Piano whaffed through the air as it greeted us and drew us into the...continued

It was OK. I am glad I didn't pay full price. It was not worth it. Food was ok at best.

The food was just ok. The vegetarian platter turned out to be a plate of steamed vegetables. I was hoping for more focus on the sights and monuments - maybe some narration as to what we were seeing. But there was no element of "tour-like"...continued

A lovely voyage on the Potomac. We cruised pass the new National Harbor, to the new National Stadium and into parts of the waterway going towards Georgetown and past Hains Point. Lovely
