The Dinner Cruise was excellent. The food and service were equivalent to a fine dining restaurant which I must admit I wasn't expecting. The band was also very good. I would highly recommend the Dinner Cruise
Wonderful experience. I highly recommend the dinner cruise to local or visitors; which I have already done to several people.. A special thanks to Jerome Peiris who went above and beyond. The service was outstanding. Thank you ( Canadian customer)
A very lovely cruise. My wife and I did this for our first wedding anniversary and it made for a very special evening. The cruise itself is lovely and takes you past very scenic parts of DC & Virginia. The meal is superbly prepared and with some exceptionally flavoursome menu choices. Drinks are also reasonably priced with a good selection. Entertainment was lovely, and we particularly enjoyed the opportunities to dance at our leisure. Service was friendly, efficient, and professional. A wonderful evening that we would recommend to other seeking a special DC experience. The only suggestion would be perhaps to offer a hotel shuttle service to and from the Marina for convenience. Although this said, it is located very near the metro line.
Not easy to find -even when a cab droped me off. Very dark area and it was not easy to get a cab afterwrds-luckily I was with two poeple I'd met on the boat and not on my own.
The boat was very clean and laid out well. I was a single person and my table was a bit stuck out and backing onto the way in. However, I had very nice people next to me who made me welcome.
The menu was unclear about the inclusion or not of the appetiser and amuse bouche ( plus it was dark and hard to read) so Ithere was some confusion about whethe I wanted an appitiser or not ( i did) when it came it was nice. My crab cake was delicious. However, the risotto was rather dry and had just a little seafood in it. The pudding -choc cip bread pudding with ice cream was lovely. Good choice of wines.
The live music was first class and thanks to y new found friends I enjoyed a few dances.
The route taken by the boat provided a brief view of the mall area - which was lovely, the city view was also nice. Unfortunately we didn't get as far towards Georgeown area as I'd hoped due to the tides.
It was an enjoyable and pleasant evening - despite the poor main course. Not sure it it was the best value for money though.
Pretty good food and band was good. Nice sightseeing along the way. A note of interest - the boat ties up right next to the ex-presidential yacht, the Sequoia.
We had a great time. The food was delicioius, the service was great, and the music was excellent. The only blip was that the name on my reservation was incorrect, which I don't understand since I registered online for the event.
Great service,food and live entertainment! Although no fault of theirs, if one of the features of the trip was to show D.C. at night,it was not as successful coz some landmarks were dark! It would help too if there was some narration or some info.where we were or what we were seeing ( ex. To your left or to the west is the...monument...)overall,it was a great experience especially that my wife enjoyed it a lot and that's what matters most!
loved it - the food was yummy, the music lively and romantic as the evening went on. The ship made several stops so we could enjoy the views which where amazing it the night skies - we will do this one again.
Food and staff and entertainment were wonderful. Disappointed that we did not see any monuments. It was stated that they could not get under the bridge. Again...VERY disappointed as that is the ONLY reason we bought this tour -- viewing the monuments lit at night.
Thoroughly enjoyed the cruise - staff were attentive and went out of their way to meet your needs, difficult to pick out sights may have been good to have a brief commentary when going past. The Captain very welcoming when coming aboard, Jerome, the Manager was attentive and our waitress Dianne did a great job. The band played some wonderful easy listening and dancing music.
We loved the whole evening. The food was outstanding and service excellent.
Loved it, loved it, loved it!! Even though you just go around in circles the food and entertainment made up for it! What an AWESOME band, Chane Link Fence. Service was impeccable. You are close to Ronald Reagan airport and get a very close up look at planes coming and going. Food came at a leisurely pace, so you were not rushed and if you were outside on deck, they kept your food warm until you returned. Food was not your "run of the mill" fare either. The excursion was something special.
