Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

Was very enjoyable but it’s advertised as 2 1/2 to 3 hours and it was only 2 hours. Also was a little disappointed with the dessert Bar When we went to get a dessert it wasall gone and we had to wait 15 minutes before any more came out

It was a very nice cruise. Would have liked to have taken off at 6 like stated. Also though it was dark I still would have liked the DJ to say something like, “look to your right and you will be able to see the Washington Memorial” or something to that affect. My waiter Johnny was great!!!

Our Experience

I could only give this a 3 overall because after paying such a high price for what we expected to be an elegant experience, it was very disappointing to be placed right next to the kitchen and bar area, the worst thing for me at any dining experience! Not only were the entrails of these areas right in your face, but the high traffic made it extremely uncomfortable and the smells were overwhelming! My request for better seating was not honored so unfortunately my entire experience was ruined. Our server, William , was amazing though and this was our saving grace, otherwise I would have given my overall experience a 2! I booked on Viator and there was no information about options to dine ( there was no where on the online booking to choose seating) and there was no general information either, eg. Parking, Menu. I found the menu on another site. The good news is, they do have a (1)vegetarian option! I suggest they remove that table right next to the Kitchen- ruins the entire experience! Lastly, I had responded to the link sent in the booking confirmation email, for changing your booking or making requests, asking for a couple special provisions as we were celebrating a special birthday. I was not contacted by anyone and had to forgo those wishes. Very disappointing. Despite all of the above, the cruise and beauty of the Potomac at night is an experience to have. We made the best of our circumstances and had a great celebration of our beloved daughter!

A lot of people was wearing sport clothes, sandals, shirts, sport shoes. Whats the point on requesting formal clothes? . Also a bunch of People was drunk before the cruise departed. Is not a fancy cruise.

The staff were awesome! From the security that greeted us to the DJ that entertained us, they were great. My wife celebrated 🍾 her birthday and the waiting staff, especially, Anyia and Michael, really made us feel special. The we're polite, professional, and very energetic. They made great recommendations and always keep smiles on their faces and ours 👍🏾

Just enjoying the new view of Washington DC. The atmosphere is very attractive. If you love cocktail, you are in luck. The tip on parking helped a great deal. Just recommend they have hand sanitizers at the entrance.
