I used a groupon voucher to do the 1hr lunch cruise. I greatly enjoyed it, the information given out over the loudspeaker was great, being able to see parts of DC from a different angle was really enjoyable. The staff were very friendly and polite....More

Made the 9am Saturday boat with small crowds. Much busier later in the day. Audio tour at both stops is a must to get the most from the trip. Water bottle filling stations in the gift shop.

You are closer to the DC fireworks when docked. Entire back end of boat reeked from the poorly vented bathrooms. Bartender had a terrible short-term memory and sub-par math skills.

I used a Groupon that I saw advertised on the Metro website and decided to give it a try on my trip this weekend. I'm glad I didn't read a lot of these reviews or I never would have went! We found it pretty easily...More

I scored a Groupon ticket for half price, which is about what the cruise is worth. The boat is nice and clean, with a bar on both levels, and basic snacks, but I wouldn't call it luxury or comfortable. There is bench seating inside and...More
