A big waste of time. Too many people on the boat, terrible food, cheap looking boat and accommodation...

Fireworks Extravaganza? I guess it was if you were one of the few who could actually see the fireworks from the covered and enclosed craft. This was a once only and wasted venture!

While fun and the fireworks were great, I would not attend this again if the boat was the same. Very poorly set up for watching the fireworks and for eating.

Join Professionals in the City for their cruise aboard a double-decker boat on the Fourth of July!_ _All aboard Miss Christin on July 4th for a star-spangled adventure on this chic, double-decker cruise boat for the best experience of the fireworks, on-board socializing and after-partying in Old Town! Whatever your political viewpoints, there’s definitely one thing that Washington, D.C. always gets right, and that’s celebrating the birth of our nation. You don’t have to watch the pyrotechnics at home on CNN; you can be there in the midst of the festivities of sounds and colors that mark the dawn of the United States of America in all her historic glory.

Each year, the National Mall hosts the day-long events that honor Independence Day in Washington, D.C., including the breathtaking fireworks display that is mimicked all over the nation from small-town backyards to supersized metropolitan cities. In America’s capitol area, there’s no place more exciting than aboard a cruise boat on the Potomac River when the food and drinks are served, the party music plays, old friends are greeted, new friends are made and the show begins. The ship will drop anchor at the Washington Monument, the undisputed best place to view this merry display.

Check-in begins at 6:45pm with boarding at 7:15pm and departure at 7:30pm.

Tickets include:

Your Reservation on the Miss Christin

Dinner from Local Pizzeria Bugsby’s

Beer, Wine and Soft Drinks

Three-Hour Cruise

A Double-Decker Boat with Air-Conditioned Lower Deck and Outdoor Roof Deck

Viewing of the half-hour National Mall Fireworks Show beginning at about 9:10pm
