My husband and I went on this cruise for our anniversary. It was a pleasant time, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it if you are looking for an intimate dinner. The music is LOUD. Like "shout across the table to your partner" loud. The live...More

This was a fun surprise for our mom on our last night in DC! Food was delicious, service outstanding. We enjoyed seeing the city at night from the Potomac. Could have been a little shorter for us, but overall a great experience!

If you want to do a military discount, I suggest calling. If you book online, there is a 20% discount with an online code. If you book the window seat, you will get it.
