  • 2.5 to 3 hour Washington DC dinner cruise
  • Freshly prepared 3-course dinner
  • Dine and dance to live music
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.

Terrible service!! 45 minutes to get salads. Had to ask multiple times! No follow up drink service. Main entree and desert delayed. Ship was not able to navigate up Potomac due to high tide, supposedly! For the price, don’t take this cruise ever!!!

Walking onto ship was beautiful, ( even though the photographer was a sour note, )the crew was waiting in foyer welcoming everyone and I love it. We were seated and our waitress Una was wonderful with getting us drinks and food, (although most of the people server food had long hair and I did witness the hair waving through the food especially the salad. View was amazing

Delightful Evening

We were in DC for a special trip for our 10 year old grandson and thought that he would enjoy seeing the city from the River. We had a lovely table by the window. Our servers Skyler and Rosalina could not have been more helpful and caring. They found a kids menu that had lots of choices for our grandson. The food was very good and the extra seafood platter, delightful. The music by Chane Link Band was outstanding! The next day when asked how he liked the cruise, our grandson said it was "Awesome!" I would second that statement.

DC Dinner Cruise

This was a perfect evening! We tried something different and came into DC by Amtrak, which arrived in the afternoon. Time to take a rest then head over for our cruise. Salmon dinner was great, but we enjoyed the live music too. Plus to see the monuments lit up at night from a distance was wonderful. The crew and staff very attentive. The only hitch we had was our Uber drop off at the venue. There is construction going on down at the harbor. So make sure you have the correct address. Kind of confusing for the driver and even us. But we made it!
