I consider the time and money spent on the cruise as time and money well spent. It was a wonderful evening out and the weather was accommodating. The food was excellent and portion size was big, we had doggie bags. Most of the staff was customer oriented and sought to please. The Musicman did a great job, and had a nice mix of music. He even took requests. My server/host/hostess "D" worked extremely hard and was very pleasant and caring, even offered free stuff when our food took too long in the kitchen. The only turn off was getting to the actual loading pier. Because of continuing development in the area, there need to be more signage to help people unfamiliar with the area to locate pier 4. Even people who work in the area couldn't help. We eventually located the pier in time to board.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 relaxing, musical hour cruise and delicious dinner on the Potomac overlooking the banks of Washington and Arlington, Virginia, a unique perspective ! The staff was professional, courteous and attentive. The ship was about half full. All the guests were friendly and enjoying themselves. The D J was tasteful and fun-loving and able to let get the people, young and old, out on the dance floor. The photographer was talented and made us look 20 years younger with her photoshop skills ! It was all around a very memorable and romantic experience for me and my husband.
