My husband and I had a great time on this river cruise. I was nervous that he'd leave the boat still a bit hungry or that we wouldn't have had a good time, but it far exceeded our expectations! I will say that jackets were not required and we...continued

My party enjoyed the captain's commentary and insights into the history of the areas we were cruising through. My father is a history buff and learned some new things! The food was quite good. It was a lovely afternoon and I would recommend it!

Nice cruise, just to get away for the day. The boat from the outside is very old looking but once you get inside it is a little nicer. The food was great and sitting on the top deck was so peaceful and the weather was great.

Our experience was wonderful. It was a beautiful, windy, Fall day on the Potomac. What an enjoyable way to reconnect with friends -- eating, drinking, and being cheery whilst taking in the sites and sounds of D.C. along the river.

Parking was easy to find. The crew were dressed professionally and greeted each people that entered the boat. The food was great and everyone had enough to eat. I went to the buffet table twice. The music was also great.

The food was great. Exactly as menu said it would be. I liked the outdoor deck and the inside of the boat and seating was very nice. However, I booked this because I thought there was supposed to be dancing but didn't find out until the cruise was...continued

The itinerary is nice, you get to see Alexandria, the National Harbor, Georgetown, the airport, etc. and the length of the trip is great. The top of the boat is huge and you get to enjoy the views from up there. The interior of the boat is...continued

The ride was enjoyable however the food was a little bland and the extra fees were disappointing. The music and atmosphere was very nice. Birthday girl still enjoyed it.

The tour past the monuments was nice, but not close enough to see them due to the ice on the river. The sound system was too loud, and the captain's monologue prevented discussion at the table. The food was ok, plentiful. The music was very old...continued

This was a very nice cruise, and the food was great. I just thought there was a bit to long of time between the salad and the main course. Other than that, the weather was great that day, and the upper deck was very nice for sitting on and...continued

This was a nice cruise. The food was pretty good: omelettes, waffles, bacon, sausage, fresh fruit, as well as turkey, ham, beef, pork & veggies. In addition to ticket price, gratuity on full $57, $3 fuel & $3 tax
