The boat was very beautiful and our server was so accommodating and friendly. It was a great experience, though there was some trouble with the tickets and the scanner that they had so I had to walk a few yards to the ticket office and have it printed out. If you come with both the digital and printed you should be fine though.

My husband and I took this dinner cruise on out last night in D.C. It was so fun! The food was delicious and the dancing was fun! Danyel was our server and she took such good care of us and made sure we had everything we needed. I highly recommend this dinner cruise!

We were told the coffee machine was broken when we were ordering drinks, and that was disappointing. Coffee finally appeared sometime after we had eaten. All of the servers were wonderful-very helpful and so nice!! The boat starts boarding at 10:45. If we had it to do over again, we would have boarded later, like 11:15, since boat doesn’t start moving till 11:30. It is a pleasant trip, and a good way to get a different view of DC. Also nice just to be out in the Potomac, a river that has seen much of our history.
