Dinner was excellent and the crew was outstanding. I will do it again when we return to DC. Would love to be on a daytime cruise to see the river sites.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

This was very enjoyable. As our first night in DC, this was a great introduction. Wish they did not go back and forth a few times, but eventually we headed out further. Food was good - but be sure to get in line early! Took my two young daughters, too and they had a blast dancing!
