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 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
