The view is beautiful at night. Lovely and calm. There is dancing on the ship and a live piano with dinner. It was maddening that the pianist had to play HAPPY BIRTHDAY 6 different times. It is so completely annoying that a wonder song being...More

This is an inclusive experience. You get a 3 hour Potomac River cruise from Alexandria up to Washington. The views are excellent and the narration informative. You get a 5 course meal (you select the main course when you book or before sailing) which includes...More

The Dandy and Nina's Dandy are nice trips up and down the Potomac River. The vistas of Virginia and DC are something from the river. The food can be decent but not always. The price seems a little high if you don't hit them on...More
