Mother Nature could have provided a warmer day but not a better trip. From the greeter to the crew all made this a fun filled day for all. Full information of the sites on shore, the music, and clean rest rooms contributed to a great family...continued

Had a wonderful time and with Goldstar the price was just right. The crew was friendly, the ship clean and warm, and given the time of year, it was not crowded. It was a great way to see the cherry blossoms on Haynes Point. I recommend it if you...continued

Because of the cold weather the blossoms weren't out as much as anticipated. I was a little disappointed that we didn't get closer to the Tidal Basin but the boat is too high to pass under the 14th St. bridge. I wouldn't do it again.

So first, some directions. The easiest way to get there is take 395N to Maine St exit which is a couple of exits past the split to take 14th street into Washington DC. When you hit Maine, take a left and the marina is right on your right. It...continued

Nice tour. Cheery Blossoms were in full bloom along both sides of East Haines Point.

The trip was great and they offered a lot of historical and anecdotal tidbits that made it even more enjoyable. We went on a chilly evening when rain was possible so there weren't a lot of people. Even so, it was just great!! Don't miss it and...continued

It was lovely. A short cruise around Potomac Island and up towards Georgetown. The lights of the city came on as we came back, very nice view of the skyline and monuments. Just right for a chilly evening.

Wednesday evening came with nice weather therefore, the cruise was very enjoyable, the sights and lights from the city line were beautiful. I really did enjoy it and will go again and take friends.

From the moment we got on the boat until the end of the tour, my family and I had an amazing time! The staff was very friendly and the tour guide did a great job of letting everyone know where the best spots on the tour were to take memorable...continued

We had bought the cruise expecting it to be a bit warmer -- it was 78 when we bought the tickets, but near freezing on the actual day of the cruise. Still, the crew and employees were warm and cheerful and made for a pleasant experience.

This is a short (less than an hour and a half) cruise down the Washington Channel into the Potomac and back. On a nice day, it's a pleasant excursion on the water, but it doesn't show a lot of Washington landmarks on its short itinerary -- Fort...continued

Although it was raining and cold, the crew and sights livened things up for us and kept even the youngest of guests occupied.

The staff was friendly and the boat was warm on a chilly day. The route went from the waterfront around Haines Point to the 14th Street bridge, then came back again. There was less commentary and description than I expected from experiences with...continued

The staff was very nice and the boat is very nice as well. The problem is that the boat cannot go under the 14th Street bridge and almost all interesting sights are between that bridge and the Key Bridge.

Basically it is a good chance to get...continued

Thoroughly enjoyed the cruise and the staff were entertaining. Although it was quite chilly, it did not detract from beautiful scenery of the cherry blossoms at sunset.

Weather was beautiful and a wonderful breeze was coming off the river as we sailed. It was very relaxing. The crew members were very friendly and talkative. I had an excellent time and the trip was very enjoyable. Well worth it

Wouldn't really sell this as "seeing the famous Cherry Blossoms." That didn't happen until we were on the drive home.

Cruise was brief but relaxing. Plenty of room to walk around boat but be mindful of those seated as you may impede their view. A longer time on the water would be nice but for the price, fair deal.

EH, it was just OK. Not worth the price I paid. the people that greeted us and worked on the boat could not have been nicer. Would have liked more commentary.
