Service was great. Food was excellent. Environment was pleasant. We danced, watched the monuments cruise by, and had a very romantic evening. The people around us were very pleasant too. It was a fabulous value!

The choices of food were good, it was a good amount. The atmosphere was very nice. I would have only wished there was somebody announcing the sites we were passing, as we are from out of town and had no idea where we were.

Review from Lynz

The cruise was definitely more "couples oriented" than advertised. The food was OK, but not awesome, and I don't think worth the price. My tickets were already paid for, but I still dropped $30 for parking, taxes, and a tip on the low end of the...continued

Review from Stephen

The event was great. Great food and service, well worth the price and time. Enjoyed the cruise and the atmosphere. We were hoping for more variety of music to dance to, lots of the same genre (hustle/disco). We danced either way (and the only...continued

The food was great and the music was nice. I do not however recommend that you do a dinner cruse during winter months - by 6 pm it was already dark and NO VISIBILITY through the windows whatsoever. Why be on a boat if you cant see anything or...continued

The ship was great, the staff were friendly. The captain even gave us a special tour of National Harbor which was really fun. The food, however....

There are more spiders on the boat than people. The venue promised to call a cab, but it never arrived. They left us stranded in a huge rain storm with no protection from the rain for an hour. We were from out of town, we couldn't call a friend...continued

There was confusion as our reservation did not get on the list of guests. Make sure to bring your receipt. I did and it was easy from there on. Dinner was very good, the atmosphere was surprisingly pleasant. We enjoyed the music...was great for...continued

This only shows a reservation for 3 but we were actually 13 and everyone enjoyed themselves thoroughly. The dinners were all VERY good, as was the service, the ride smooth (even 2 who have motion problems were fine), it was terrific to have the...continued

Review from Linda D.

Very enjoyable, even for a "local". The weather was great (necessary to fully enjoy the cruise). The food was of good quality and prepared well. Our rare prime rib was as good as you would get except at one of the premium steak houses. The...continued

We had a wonderful night. Food, seating, scenery, boat was good. Service coud be a little more friendlier. It was disappointing that boat could not go under bridge to see Georgetown, due to high tide. Overall, we had a wonderful and romantic...continued

Review from Elena Gagieva

We've been to this cruise 3 times already. It's a good option to do something special or different around DC. The views are nice however it's better in the warmer months when you can enjoy the views on the upper open deck.
The average age of...continued

Beautiful evening! Saw 2 fireworks displays. The Dandy travels a good distance. Prime rib was great - a bit rare, but tasty. Fresh fruit, decent salad and nice dessert selection. Beware the hidden charges - "fuel charges, etc" And remember,...continued

Being on the Potomac is a really beautiful perspective on the monuments and bridges along the way (Lincoln, Memorial, G'town). Food was better than I expected. Music was good for couples dancing. Be sure the Dandy does not try to charge you for...continued

Review from Ben

Cons: We were the only people on the boat under the age of 50. The food was nothing to write home about...It was kind of like a diner on the water. Also, there are other charges including gratuity, tax, drinks and even fuel. We got a bottle of...continued

Couldn't be more pleased. The food, service, and entertainment were first rate. The views of our beautiful nation's capitol were spectacular. A special and memorable night.

Couldnt really see any of the sights from inside - not sure if its the tinted glass or nighttime element. Also the food was very mediocre. Soup and salad were good but fish was bland and my wifes veggie platter was not good at all. id ask you to...continued
