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.

Very Disappointing
Oscar_M
, May 2022
This was a terrible experience, service was terrible, the 2 wait Hera we have were really bad, they don’t know s*** about customer service, we didn’t have silverware and when asked they took forever, when they removed the empty plates form our table they did it like if they were angry, no manners at all, one of the waiter spilled a glass of water on one of us and he didn’t even say I’m sorry and pretend didn’t happened, he just walked away and when we told him about he just made some faces like he didn’t care, food choices didn’t have beef, just chicken and salmon, and food was too salty, extremely salty Id say,,, definitely I’m not recommending this cruise to anybody we payed $1,100 hundred for our party and it was very disappointing…. I giving them 0 stars

We enjoyed this experience. The best part was the clam chowder, the bread and the dancing. The service was good as well. The cruise goes to National Airport and guests can watch the airplanes take off and land. We went in mid-May and the weather outside was perfect.

Would not recommend.
Anahi_P
, May 2022
I expected a lot more for the price. The food was decent. I thought the food was going to be a little more thought out and have at least an appetizer of some sort. The desert bar was not my favorite. I think it would have been better to have had a two choice desert menu and brought to the table. There isn’t much information as to what is going on and where exactly you go on the tour. It says you get to see the monuments but we didn’t really catch a glimpse of much. I was looking forward to this and it just fell flat of what I thought we were going to get. I was not impressed.

Boo. As locals we would never recommend.
Jonathan_F
, Apr 2022
The food was terribly mediocre diner food. The service was absent for most of the evening. We never got items we ordered or had to ask multiple times after we had waited more than 30 minutes (for a drink). And then we were trapped in this bad restaurant for 3 hours since it was a cruise. Very disappointed for the $200+ per person tickets. There was very little to “see” on the water. Just very disappointing.
