"B'day cruise"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed July 17, 2019 NEW
We have been on the Odyssey Cruise in DC before. It is basically fun and all staff treat you well. The biggest complaint we had this time is that just because a place plays music LOUD does not make it nice to listen to. We could not even carry on a conversation at our table because the music was soooooooooo loud. I noticed other people were not talking either. Volume could have easily been half as loud. Both my wife and I could feel our heart rate increase and this was to have been a nice, relaxing B'day dinner cruise. We had to go sit outside to get a break from the music. And they played it for the entire cruise. It was not a delightful dinner cruise at all for us. However, that being said, the food was very good and Devante was an attentive waiter.

"Not worth the price"

Booked 4 people for a dinner cruise, also asked for the "upgrade." The end of the boat we were on was completely taken over by a large young group and over zealous DJ. We couldn't even talk, had to go outside. Speaking of outside, we booked today but apparently between 1 PM and 7 PM the Potomac was too flooded for the boat to go under the 14th street bridge, so we did circles outside Haines Point, Bolling AFB and Ft McNair. I spent close to a grand for what I thought would be a premier sailing and dining experience, but felt like I was on the cheaper version of the Love Boat. Never again...I actually would like some refund, will pay for the good dinner but felt I got taken to the cleaners with this show.

"Fun, Delicious Dinner Cruise"

From the beginning to the end of this cruise, everything was fantastic. The wait staff were friendly, polite, and very attentive to our needs. The entertainment was top of the line. The lady who sang was SUPER FANTASTIC. Her voice was beautiful. The food. WOW!!!! It was superb. The dishes were divine. I cannot say enough how well prepared the food was on this dinner cruise. The photos were very nice and we bought two of our 5 and my parents bought the other three. As we were celebrating our anniversary as well as that of my parents, our wait staff treated us to a sweet treat at the end. Well done Odyssey III DC!!

This by far is one of the greatest lunches I have ever had. The entire staff was amazing and friendly. My wife says best birthday gift ever was the lunch cruise aboard the Odyssey 3. Thanks to the whole crew for helping me make her birthday special
