What You Can Expect

Washington DC Odyssey Dinner Cruise

Washington DC Dinner Cruise

Enjoy a sightseeing dinner cruise along the Potomac River and Washington, DC’s beautiful waterfront, departing from Gangplank Marina at 600 Water Street SW. This excursion covers the Potomac River with fascinating views of DC’s famous monuments and the city's historic waterfront.
The Odyssey is a modern dining ship with three exquisitely decorated glass atrium dining rooms, offering amazing river views of the nation's greatest monuments from every table. These inner dining areas offers plenty of comfortable seating with large picture windows to see the sites. There is also an open-air observation deck (reminiscent of the European canal ships) and dance floors.
The Captain and crew greet the guests as they arrive and the ship's photographer will record the moment for each party, if desired.
For the 3-course dinner, there is a tasting trio, entrees and desserts. To begin, choose from roasted summer vegetable salad, rock shrimp spheres or whipped goat cheese. The entrees include crab and mussel gratin, Romesco crust salmon, maple mustard glazed chicken, braised short rib, cauliflower steak or steak and lobster tail (additional charge). For dessert, there’s duo of sorbet, Odyssey signature bread pudding, mountain berry shortcake or chocolate decadent cake.
After eating, dance the night away to live music. The evening begins with softer standards before shifting to more high-energy dance music after dinner.
Throughout the cruise, enjoy stunning views of the Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Reagan National Airport, the United States Naval Research Laboratory, Old Town Alexandria in Virginia, the Woodrow Wilson Memorial Bridge and much more.

The end of June 2017 we took a tour of Washington D.C. and while at the National cemetery our tour guide explained about the gondolas
that come by if they had a U.S. Flag over the gondola not to take pictures because the burial had not occurred ---if it had a black drape over it that it was ok to take pictures. As the horses came by and got along side me he stopped!!!! I had my Vietnam Veteran and Navy cap on. The lead horse came directly over to me and stopped real close--the man reached out and handed me a red rose and said
Thank you for your service!!! I was just so honored more than anytime in my over 20 years of active duty in the Navy. The tour guide said that in her over 20 years of doing tours she had never observed this. This was the most outstanding tour ever!
