I was extremely appreciative of the Goldstar discount which made this event more affordable for us. (I do not know if I would have booked this event for the regular fee which is a bit pricey!) My in-laws who live outside of the US were here for...continued

The food was quite good for a boat, but hardly worth a list price of $80 pp. Note the fine-print, gratuity and tax (totaling around $18 pp) are collected on board, in addition to whatever you drink. Lots of 40 somethings and 50 somethings...continued

I need to note, for the record, I was expecting something rather different from what I got and that's why I was fairly disappointed. Let me first explain what I was expecting. I was expecting a middle aged (30 - 40 something) crowd on a small...continued

The cruise was okay but I wasn’t expecting to be charged for each non-alcoholic beverage and refill. When the evening was over and the bill was presented we were charged for a total of 17 drinks. I wish it would have been noted somewhere that...continued

Don't go for the food, go for the ride! The food was "good" but if you're used to DC area's fantastic eats you'll be disappointed. However, service was fine and friendly. The nightime cruise was a romantic way to spend our one-year elopement...continued

Normally, dinner cruises aren't known for their food and my expectations were set pretty low for the food as a result. However, the first impression I got when making the reservation was how impressive the list of entree choices was. Since the...continued

I have no idea what the other people who didn't enjoy themselves were talking about! I had the most wonderful time. I took my family on the cruise and the food was perfect, the ambiance was perfect, the service was perfect and the music was...continued

The night of our cruise was a perfect summer night. The lights on the Potomac were beautiful. Everything was exactly on time. The food was above average as was the service. Being able to go on the outside upper deck with music for dancing...continued

Food wasn't as pleasant as described. Under seasoned and definatly if you order the prime rib ask for it to be well done. And the DJ needed to play a better variety. But other than that the staff was pleasant and the boat had a great view. Would...continued

The evening was very romantic and a great way to experience the summer views. The food was o.k. and the music was a flash back to the 70's & 80's.

It was great! The food was excellent - prime rib came exactly as we requested. The crew was attentive and courteous. It was a perfect way to celebrate our 11th Anniversary. I have to add, though, that the great weather and it not being very...continued

The event was great. Compared to other peoples reviews written below I was expected the food to be terrible but it was actually pretty tasty. I got the Cornish Hen and my date had the Prime Rib. Ask for the Prime Rib Medium Rare, it was cooked...continued

The service was excellent, and the food very good. The pianist that accompanied dinner was very good, but the dancing music was kind of lame. I understand that they must cater to a diverse audience, but the music was definitely for the over 50...continued

I had sailed on the Dandy years ago and knew that the price Goldstar was offering was an amazing deal. Although my guest had never cruised the Potomac, he thoroughly enjoyed himself too...we had scrumptious entrees (shrimp stuffed with crab...continued

The event was well-orchestrated on the Nina's Dandy. Everything was smooth and very pleasant. The end costs are tricky with full price gratuity and taxes. However, a lovely evening!
