I enjoyed the cruise. The crew was polite and helpful and the variety of food was very good. When we docked, the crew lined up on both sides and sang to us as we left the boat.

We really enjoyed the October 21 Lunch cruise. We couldn't decide between the Spirit and the Odyssey cruise. The Odyssey was a barge with a restaurant on top. This was a real ship with multiple decks.
The food was good and the waiter was AMAZING! ALL the staff was outstanding. We really enjoyed that the boat was not full for the lunch cruise and so we could find places to watch the shoreline go by where we were not in the middle of a crowd. We wished there would have been more explanation of what we saw along the shore. There was some, but it was minimal. The DJ was good but not pushy.

Very enjoyable lunch cruise.

The Cruise was a delight. The Staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly. The food was delicious.
The only difficulty was at the ticket window, it was unclear what line we were to get in for our tour.
And the temporary construction around the dock made it difficult to be sure one was at the correct
address. Otherwise, my husband and I gave high kudos for this experience.

I booked Friday morning for Wed at 12. At 11:45 Wed morn my status was still pending. I called and the lady was panicked for me asking where I was. I told her a Pier 4 (loading area) so they called and had them wait. A crew member came to get us and escorted us to the ship. DJ played nice variety.

I am so glad you asked. We were 5 adults, 1 four and a hall year old and twin two year olds. I was celebrating a big birthday with my family in the DC area.and thought the cruise would be a lovely way to end a fun weekend . It was a great choice for us! I don't recall seeing that there would be reserved tables on you r contact info but, it was welcomed when we went on board not to have to search for an empty table and manage the kiddies. By the way, they absolutely adored the flights of steps and would rate their ascents and descents a solid 5 STARS. As a family we had been eating out all weekend and found the food in many places very good but the service lacking. You were all very organized, friendly and totally customer service oriented. From the photogs on deck and then Drew on board , all servers and the Baquet Manager helped to assure on cruise was great fun and exceeded my expectations. PS the food was yummy , too. Thank you all for a wonderful birthday celebration!! Andrea P. And family

The lunch cruise tour was awesome. My entire family really enjoyed the time we spent on the boat. The employees were great, the food was marvelous. And the DJ was wonderful, he had a dynamic voice, he can dance and d j at the same time. He help made to trip magnificent. So I thoroughly would recommend this tour, it was worth while. We enjoyed it so that the time just flew by us, that was just how much fun we had. My hat's off the cook, the DJ, and the whole staff. If I ever travel to D C again, this will be one of my stops. Oh, we were from Mississippi, and it was my birthday and they really made me feel special. Thanks again!

This was a real shocker! When we got up to get ready for our lunch cruise it was pouring down rain and it was still raining when we go to the boat. But the cruise was still on, and all the people did an incredible job; the food was great, the boat was great, the service was great, and the entertainment was great! In fact, everything was GREAT!! Oh, and it did stop raining and turned out to be a nice day. Every person who lives in D.C. or visits D.C. should do this lunch cruise it's GREAT!!

Having never been in Washington before I thought this day time lunch cruise would be a good way to get the lay of the land and river.

The food was very nice,Plenty of it, some good choices and your encouraged to go up as often as you like. My erstwhile vegetarian friend also found plenty of tasty delights. The waitress, Nakeda, who looked after us, was an ambassador for the cruise line and she is a service star, juggling drinks, having fun, clearing tables and finding time to help the DJ belt out a tune, in rather fine form.

Now for the DJ, chatty, LOUD and always there, so be ready for that, it's not every ones cup of tea, but he kept the party going, though for a Sunday Cherry Blossom Festival lunch cruise I personally found it to much, I would have been happy with more sights highlights and peaceful tunes. But I bet this is a real fun cruise at night. It did take me back a few times to my Disco days of the 70's, so for those moments of nostalgia it was pleasant.

This is a well run cruise with good food and service, and whilst it wasn't what I was expecting, I didn't not enjoy it. Thank you Nakeda you made us feel really welcome and special. The Chanel guy.
