All inclusive night tour was awesome. The food was all great and plentiful. You might have to get a drink from the bar even though our server wants you to order through them. Get up and have a drink outside. Have a relaxing time and...More

This tour sounded like such a wonderful evening. Boy was I wrong. The lack of sufficient air conditioning was just the beginning. They were completely understaffed. Couldn't get a waiter so waited in line 20 minutes for a $21 beer and awful cocktail. Then the...More

I was very disappointed with this cruise. It was my mother's birthday and this is what she wanted. We paid an additional $100 for guaranteed window sitting only to be placed directly in the sun on the hottest day of the year. The food service...More

I bought two groupons for this experience for me and my wife's 7th anniversary in an effort to do something special and different. That it was! We are normally very sea sick type people but once on the boat it was a very smoothie ride....More

I have been on boat cruises before, but the Odyssey Potomac Boat Cruise was much better than I expected. The boat is a glass enclosed flat sailing vessel, so you can see everything around you. There are plenty of viewing areas on the exterior of...More

What a wonderful lunch and with views of the monuments of our Capitol. The food and service were excellent-try the braised beef. There was live music thru the cruise,which was a nice complement, but at times it drowned out the person on the speakers identifying...More

Stay away! Total rip off! If the tide is too high you turn around and see nothing but construction and buildings. They don't tell you ahead of time so call prior to leaving.

This evening, on Father's Day, was sold as special and described as luxury. It wasn't. The staff were, at best indifferent. We had booked the luxury package at $471 for two. Probably worth the $71 of that. Droopy flower arrangement on the tables sums up...More

I feel as if I played into a scam. I paid over $500 for mediocre service. Definitely not worth it when I could have gone with the Spirit cruise for $45 and have much more fun and great value for the buck. I reserved a...More

I don't recall Odyssey specifying a tip policy. Given the outstanding service we received on our voyage, I would suggest a generous tip. That's assuming you enjoy similar service. By our choice, we tipped them well, felt it... More
