“Inflated administrative fees”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 December 2012

Went to buy two tickets for a dinner dance cruise, only to be presented with an "administrative fee" of over $100! So, buyer beware.

“Dinner and a cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2012

This dinner cruise is my favorite in DC dinner cruise and we've done all or most of them. The food is excellent and the service superb. The leisurely cruise up the Potomac River passing all the monuments is awe-inspiring.

“An Evening On The Potomac”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2012

Every part of this cruise was wonderful. Because the evening was warm and clear for November we were able to enjoy all the sights up the river to the boat house on river road. The service was outstanding with the dinner having a varied selection. Enjoy an evening on the Potomac with this cruise.

“Wedding and Reception”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2012

We highly recommend the Odyssey for your wedding or reception. We booked the Odyssey for both our wedding and reception on October 13, 2012. Reservation was for a guest count of 110 people. Our event started at 6pm and ended at 11pm.

The venue is beautiful, and only needed minimal decorations. With clear glass windows, white linen tables, beautiful glass & silverware - the reception was gorgeous.

We worked with Odyssey's wedding coordinator Rachel Macasieb. She was our single point of contact which made everything so much easier on us. Her response to emails were always professional and thorough. She was extremely positive with amazing energy to boost up even the worst situations that we went through during our wedding planning process. Rachel even gave us her cell phone number for any emergency situations. This helped ease anxiety and nail down final details as the celebration date approached. They were accommodating with changes up the last minute. Even after the wedding, she continues to be available for us for any further questions we might have. After hearing all the horror stories of weddings falling apart from other brides using other venues, Rachel and the other staff made sure that everything was on schedule. We were even ahead of scheduling giving us even more time to dance with our guest!

Half the boat was blocked off for our event. We wanted it exclusive and weren't quite sure at first, but the event definitely felt intimate and completely private. At times we forget that there was another half to the boat. They made sure to keep our area blocked off and scheduled the times, so that we wouldn't bump into the other guest.

All the staff were professional. The guest complimented the bar staff especially for being so pleasant through the entire night. Our wedding was everything we had hoped for! Thank you Odyssey, the staff, and especially Rachel Macasieb for making our special day We highly recommend the Odyssey for weddings. 5 stars!
