Thought this was going to be an old foggies ride. Turned out the band was terrific, the views were spectacular, the food was reasonable not great

Great experience and thanks for making the evening special
Pleasant cruise, food sufficient however the trio of appetisers included a salad taster - fine, a seafood taster - not good for me as I don't like seafood and a goats cheese taster - not good for me as I'm lactose intolerant! The short rib entrée was amazing. Service was good and they had a good selection of reasonably priced wines. The band played a good selection of music throughout the evening.
WE did the dinner cruise on our last night in town. It was the perfect ending to our vacation. Food and service was excellent and the views were spectacular. Would do this again and again. We took our granddaughter who is 15 and she loved being apart of an adult evening. This could be a very romantic evening for a celebration. The crew went above and beyond any expectations we had.
We arrived about 30 minutes before sailing time, were seated, drink orders were taken while reviewing dinner menus. The boat left the dock just after the 8PM Sailing time. We had drinks, and dinner dinner was served shortly after we cruised south out of the marina harbor area around Haines Point ? out into the Potomac River where we turned and cruised upriver past the DC sights, and Reagan National Airport across the river in Va. We Cruised up river to just beyond the Key Bridge at Georgetown where we turned around to cruise back. The dinner was very good, the cruise smooth on the River and the company excellent. The band played requests, dance music and folks enjoyed dancing on a reasonably spacious dance floor. We arrived back at the marina just after 11PM 3 hours after leaving the dock. Upon leaving the boat and making our way across the parking lot, to the street we were disappointed to find no large number of taxis waiting to take away the large number of people who had not driven themselves there. Since this is a regular and ongoing operation, I would have thought that there would be a number of taxis waiting or arriving reasonably soon. Only 3-4 showed up, and we finally were picked up by a passing limousine driver with whom we negotiated a fee to take us to our hotel nearly twice what a cab would have cost. After 11PM most everyone has left this area of the city so there was not the vast amount of traffic which would be passing during the daytime. I am going to suggest that the cruise company make arrangements with at least one of the cab companies in town to send a number of cabs down there to arrive within 10-15 minutes after the boat returns to pick up passengers. Otherwise it means a walk around to one of the more traveled streets. So if you have an app on your Smart phone to call a cab you will want to use it or make arrangements otherwise. All in all an excellent experience and I recommend it to anyone. Will probably do so again.
We took the whole family on yhis trip and it was excellent! The crew were very helpful and friendly. The food was fantastic. The entertainment was enjoyable. And, the view of DC from the Potomac was unforgettable. We would definately recommend the experience to others.

Outstanding! Everything was in place, and perfect, it made my 31st Anniversary a special memory.
Thanks for the memories!
The food dancing and cruise wqs great! Would tell everyone to do this!!
The live singing on the cruise was amazing! We had a great time.
The cruise was a delight. The boat was lovely, the service was extremely good and the cuisine could rival any great restaurant. I highly recommend this dinner cruise if visiting DC. Although the price seemed a little steep when we booked, it was well worth it, and afterwards we considered it a great deal.
Since I had lived in the D.C. area for many years, it was important to me to show my family and more importantly the younger ones our Nations Capital. I did not make a mistake in choosing this Dinner Cruse...it was just right. The crew were very welcoming and helpful, the food was really good and the trip was unforgettable to the family. It's pricy but for a one time experience, well worth the money. I would highly recommend you put it on your evening agenda on your next visit....oh, don't get me wrong, it's not only for family's, It's romantic for that special someone.
We were celebrating our 47th wedding anniversary and had a super time. The staff was exceptional and the ambiance was great. We really liked the band. The complimentary flowers and champagne made the evening even more special.
In spite of the pouring rain, the cruise was lovely. Very attentive staff. I would definitely recommend to others, and I would do again.
An excellent meal also the entertainment was first class one of the best nights ever.
We enjoyed every aspect of our trip with your cruise. The food, and music were wonderful, I can't think of any way to improve it. Even the weather cooperated. Joan M
