Nina's Dandy is quite handicap accessible. One small ramp to get into the ship. There is a restroom (see previous tip). You can get on deck on dining level and enjoy the fresh air, but you can't get on the upper deck with a chair.Nina's Dandy Brunch & Lunch Cruise info • Jul 25 2014 star this tip starred

First of all, when we got to the dock, there were two Dandy's back to back. we went into the office and they explained that we were on the smaller boat. So we went to that and had to wait outside in the cold untill exactly 600pm. We had a nice table and I chose the chair that would be facing backwards so that my wife could get the better view. There was a paper tent withour name on it and that we were Goldstar memebers. The servers were very nice but spoke very little English. She got our drink order wrong but then fixed it right away. we started out with Clam Chowder, a nice salad and then we had the Prime Rib. I had the chocolate mouse and my wife had the cheescake. everything was better than expected. Because of the high water level, we couldn't go past the monuments and went over to the stadium area of DC. Which was okay. But then they had to waste some time, so we were just drifting very slowly. Then it started to get hot inside and I tried to find the outside part of the boat. There was none. No way to open a window, and nowhere to go, so I started feeling a little claustrophic. The music then started and it was 80's Wedding music, which everyone seemed to like. o by the time we got near to our starting point, I was ready to go. They bring the bill and there is n Goldstar discount on it. It was full price, even though we paid in advance. We mentioned it to the server, who couuld barely understand us, and she went away for a long period of time and came back with the discount. Two glasses of wine, one coffee, the tax, service charge and tip came to about 56 dollars. Then we heard the couple to our right and another couple behind us were having the same problem. No Goldstar discount and lots of talking about why we should get it. That put a little damper on the situation as I felt like they might have been trying to scam us. But the servers worked it out for everyone in the end and my wife had a really good time. So it was worth the Goldstar price, but I wouuld never pay full price.

The idea behind the cruise is great, but the event was less than spectacular. First, the waters were deemed "too rough" for us to take the designated tour route, so instead we cruised along the harbor and didn't actually get to see the monuments...continued
