    As for the food and entertainment it was a five star. What monuments? From afar you see the Washinton memorial and the Capital. Near by some buildings that were described. No photo moments.

    I enjoyed the cruise. The crew was polite and helpful and the variety of food was very good. When we docked, the crew lined up on both sides and sang to us as we left the boat.

    Was a nice trip down the Potomac on a clear cool day. The food was ok - nothing special at all. The staff was especially nice and attentive, and the DJ kept everyone dancing and smiling throughout the trip

    We really enjoyed the October 21 Lunch cruise. We couldn't decide between the Spirit and the Odyssey cruise. The Odyssey was a barge with a restaurant on top. This was a real ship with multiple decks.
    The food was good and the waiter was AMAZING! ALL the staff was outstanding. We really enjoyed that the boat was not full for the lunch cruise and so we could find places to watch the shoreline go by where we were not in the middle of a crowd. We wished there would have been more explanation of what we saw along the shore. There was some, but it was minimal. The DJ was good but not pushy.

    Very enjoyable lunch cruise.

    The Cruise was a delight. The Staff was exceptionally helpful and friendly. The food was delicious.
    The only difficulty was at the ticket window, it was unclear what line we were to get in for our tour.
    And the temporary construction around the dock made it difficult to be sure one was at the correct
    address. Otherwise, my husband and I gave high kudos for this experience.

    The lunch cruise was so much fun! The food was awesome and it was so wonderful to see the staff on the dance floor. Thank you for a great experience.
