Make sure you ask for Ms. Danyl our server was a BLESSING to me and my Wife. My major complaint is PARKING that has to be corrected ASAP not everyone is able to walk 7 blocks away with getting car ticketd or towed on a Saturday.

"Valentine's Day Cruise"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed February 16, 2020
We had the best time on the Odyssey Valentine's Day brunch cruise. The staff was amazing! Kevin n Renita paid close attention to anytime our glasses of mimosas were getting low. They were very attentive and checked on us often. We had the delicious brunch buffet with lots of choices. The ambiance of the boat was just right. We were lucky and had a sunny day. The sun was shining through the top n sides of the glass windows. I so enjoyed the band we had on our side. A group of very talented musicians. One played the saxophone, guitar, and sang. The ladies had a range of songs they sang so beautifully including Alicia Keys and Sade. We will be back for sure. I'm thinking when the weather is a little warmer and maybe during the cherry blossom peak time

"Best River Cruise ever!!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed February 06, 2020
This cruise boat offered the most amazing river views to each patron due to its design, so the boat is sensational. Classy!! The best sight seeing cruise I have been on and the food was awesome matched with great service from all. All staff were very happy and friendly just another bonus was the band playing music that got us all on the floor dancing and singing along with them! This cruise is really the most enjoyable thing we did in Washington DC...I was travelling with a friend, she totally enjoyed it too but other people had young children who were also dancing...I recommend it to all.

"Birthday Brunch "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 12, 2020
I’m a little late on giving my review, but I would be remiss if I didn’t share what a wonderful time I had on this cruise. I booked the brunch cruise for my boyfriend and he loved it! The food was amazing, the live music was perfect, and the window seat was worth it. The staff was super friendly and attentive as well. Due to low tides we had to take the alternate route, but honestly I couldn’t tell. We sailed for exactly 2 hours. They did a great job acknowledging it was my boyfriend’s birthday throughout the cruise and they brought him a slice of chocolate with a candle! I will definitely be booking again.
