Good food, great views, attentive staff and terrific music. A very romantic night -- the fireworks were a nice bonus!

Second time on this cruise and it was a lot of fun. Took family from out of town and they truly enjoyed it. Just very expensive on the boat with drinks and tips. When you purchase this, the gratuity isn't included. The ask for the gratuity at...continued

The cruise on Thursday evening, March 22, was excellent. The boat, crew, weather and scenery all cooperated, and the dinner was surprisingly good and well prepared. We were celebrating our 60th Anniversary, and we did indeed have a memorable way...continued

The dinner was good. Service was very good. The cruise itself was very nice.
We were able to see the fireworks from the Cherry Blossom festival.
At the end, the bill had an additional $80 for the tax & tips for a party of 3 plus 2 sodas.
I'm...continued

Had a lovely time, would recommend. Took a group of 11 people from ages 7-92, we all had fun. The dining, dancing and music were very enjoyable. Sitting top deck at night to view DC is relaxing and enjoyable if you are not into the dancing going...continued

I was very disappointed that the "tide was too high" and we couldn't cruise past the National Monuments. I don't know exactly how you figure out if this will happen as I'm sure Dandy Cruises has no incentive to tell people in advance! Maybe...continued

Our party of four enjoyed the cruise. The length of the cruise was just right. The dinner was very good.

The only two drawbacks were that the crowd was noisy, it was difficult to conduct a conversation and our waiter was not attentive.

I...continued

This was really romantic. The service was excellent and the food taste great. A pianist was on board, but I think a jazz band would make the cruise more enjoyable. However, I was surprise of the cost of the drinks. My tab plus gratuities came...continued

Upon boarding the boat a pianist was playing and a server immediately took your drink order. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere was romantic. There were two decks outside to enjoy the views. Lots of photo opportunities.

We had supper with four family members on the cruise. We were skeptical about the quality of the food on these type of cruises. We were all pleasantly surprised with the quality of our prime rib dinners. The beef was of good quality, a generous...continued

We went to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We had a party of 7 and we all had a good time. The view of DC at night, was really cool, especially when we went under the bridge with the main mast down, you felt like you could touch the bottom...continued

Beware of all the extra charges. This ended up being quite an expensive meal/dance/cruise. The atmosphere was nice, and we enjoyed seeing the monuments, and dancing to the music. At times the music was too loud...sometimes the snare drum was so...continued

Boat outside looked a little less appealing but looks are deceiving. The atmosphere was lovely, love the piano player. The food was okay but the company made up for the bland food. Too pricey for the quality of food, should be better. I will...continued

Food was OK, not great. Room temperature was too cold. Piano music too loud for conversation during dinner.
