We were in town to see family. Brought friends with us who hadn't been to DC that much. This is a wonderful glass top boat cruise with a weekend brunch and cruise with live music. The food is delicious and the staff excellent.

I lived in Washignton, DC area for 38 years and never took the Odyssey cruise until now. We loved it, great food and entertainment. The service was good too.

My wife and I took a brunch cruise on the Odyssey to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was a lovely cruise, the on board staff was great and the food delicious. There was a live band on board that we both thoroughly enjoyed. The problems were with the shore side experience. If you look at the price on the website,... More

My husband and I had an amazing evening. It was so much more than I expected. The staff especially Chelly and Antonia made us feel like we were the only ones they were working with. The Deckhands were also very friendly and accommodating. Oh did I mention the music...wonderful and I danced all night. The food was excellent too. I... More

I think the staff was overwhelmed with not having enough help. However some in our party did not receive dinner until almost the end of the cruise. The salmon was delicious. The scenery is nice. I wish the owners weren't such money hungry fools and hired a few more people to help the hard working staff. As locals we will... More

This was a great way to travel to Mt. Vernon and there was ample time to stroll the grounds, have lunch and visit the gift store! The shuttle from the pier to the estate was welcomed as the walkway is uphill, but it's not far if you want to take the walk.

From the time we arrived on the cruise ship to when we left our expectations were taken to a new level. The staff was over the top! Such a wonderful way to celebrate any special occasion with family or friends. The food was awesome as well as the service. The entertainment was great!

The atmosphere was very nice with live music and well-prepared buffet. We came for the Mimosa Brunch, and the staff was very attentive - clearing our plates and keeping our glasses full, even when we went out on the deck to take pictures of the view. The interior is comparable to a cruise ship - I would have dressed-up a... More

I took my wife out for a night of something different. The service was spot-on as the servers always made sure we had what we needed and/or wanted, also advising us on what was not included in the price. Both me and my wife enjoyed the food as well. Now the reason for the 4 instead of the 5. The... More
