All the staff members were extremely friendly during the booking process and brunch cruise. All of my questions, changes in reservation information, etc. were handled professionally. I went with 4 of my friends to celebrate my birthday and would love to come back for a dinner cruise. It definitely worth every penny you pay! See you all sometime soon!

We were on the night dinner cruise and it was lovely and fun. The staff could not have been better, food was way better then any harbor cruise. The music was fun and everything seemed to enjoy it as much as we did.

"Ray’s birthday mimosa brunch"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 12, 2018 NEW
We booked one of their Sunday “bottomless mimosa brunch cruises. What a great time. The food selection was very diverse and extensive. And it tasted great too. The mimosas kept coming for the two hour cruise. You don’t go as far up the Potomac as some other cruises due to where it starts. We got as far as the Memorial Bridge before turning around. But the day was beautiful and the river was nice. They also had a live band playing music for us. What a great time!

Took my mom on the Sunday brunch cruise including the bottomless mimosa deal. We purchased the window seating upgrade. The food, service & band was very good. Plenty of food & mimosas. Don't expect commentary during the cruise, but the music the band played was nice.

Can the staff accommodate my dietary restriction?
Vegetarian menu options are available. While we offer gluten and allergy free products and gluten sensitive menu items, we openly handle several allergens throughout our galleys. While we take precautions to keep ingredients separate, we cannot guarantee a gluten-free environment. We do not have separate prep surfaces, cooktops or equipment. Our chefs prepare and cook in common areas with shared equipment, therefore the items may come in contact with other food products.

What is the difference between "Boarding Time" and "Cruising Time?”?
"Boarding Time" is the earliest you and your guests may board the ship. You are free to board any time after that up until the "Cruise Time." The ship will leave port at the "Cruise Time." We recommend allowing plenty of time for parking and getting to the ship. The ship leaves promptly at the listed “Cruise Time” and passengers will not be able to board once the ship sets sail.

May I bring my own camera on board?
Guests are more than welcome to bring their own camera for personal pictures aboard the ship. In addition, as you are boarding, the ship's photographer records the moment for your entire party. As you depart, you'll find your boarding photo ready for purchase.

Is there a coat check where my jacket and briefcase may be kept during the cruise?
Coat checks are available when needed. Your server would be more than happy to check any items for you at the beginning of your cruise.

What if it rains or snows?
