What To Expect
Come aboard Washington's premier dining ship! This three-hour dinner cruise takes you along the Potomac River for panoramic views of the nation's greatest monuments as you dine on a four-course dinner.
The boat's unique design allows you to travel beneath the historic bridges spanning the Potomac River, while the glass-atrium dining rooms offer spectacular views.
Dressed in your most festive attire, arrive early and enjoy a cocktail. You'll discover the ship's unique elegance is merely a taste of the experience to come. The Captain and crew will greet you as you step aboard, and the ship's photographer will record the moment for your party. Once on deck, your hostess will greet you and escort you to your private table, where your wait staff will introduce themselves and give you the opportunity to decide how you'd like them to pace your service.
The boat has three climate-controlled dining rooms, an open-air deck to explore and a distinctive atmosphere that's reminiscent of the European canal ships. Be sure to visit the Captain's bridge, open to all passengers throughout most of the cruise.
The menu of creative seasonal hors d'oeuvres, appetizers, entrees and desserts is freshly prepared onboard daily, perfectly complemented by an excellent wine list.
Listen. Dance. Cheek-to-cheek. Take a spin around the dance floor as our live band and talented vocalist entertain you with a popular variety of jazz, Motown and adult contemporary hits.
As you depart, feeling relaxed and refreshed, you'll find your boarding photo ready for purchase.
