The cruise was pleasant and exactly as expected. The area to load is busy and there are several tour companies there, but ours was easy to spot as it had DC Cruises in big red letters on the side of the boat. Don't let the reviews throw you off. Just ask someone if you are nervous about missing the cruise.
The Moonlight Cruise was beautiful and it was a nice evening on a nice boat. But, my only complaint was that the place was hard to find and once we found the place we assumed the boarding was to take place we couldn't see the sign for the DC Cruis boat, or the boat for that matter. So, we asked another Boat group and showed them our paper work....they were confused and said they did't think that boat existed, so I thought we got ripped off until I talked to another guy and he pointed me to the sign that was correct. I paniced, by calling the phone number on my sheet and it was only recording. I then saw the DC boat arriving and asked the crew members and they said we were in the right spot and that we were scheduled for their boat. Thank goodness!
This cruise was ok but the name of the name of the boat was not clearly identified as the other boats were so we missed our 8:30 tour which we arrived for at 7:30. Therefore when we did get on the next boat which we had to wait for for over an hour, we were starving and wanted to rush the cruise along. We then ate after midnight.
music was a bit loud, wished there had been an "announcer" to tell us what different buildings were. Pleasant ride though
I just wasn't impressed with the tour. There was no one to tell you about the sights unless you ask. I thought for the money paid it would have been a better deal. I think I would have got more out of the bus tour. The boat just went up the river and back. Very very disappointed in the trip. Should have saved my money. Would not recommend this trip to anyone.
