Customer Reviews

The lunch cruise in DC was wonderful! Great service, excellent food, and awesome views. The tide was too high to go the usual route so we only saw half of the landmarks on the agenda, but it was still beautiful out on the water and we enjoyed a romantic day. Be prepared to pay $25 to park in the closest garage (as is typical with DC) if you’re driving.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi there!  Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us! I am so happy to hear that despite some tricky navigation due to high tides, the cruise was still an absolute win! We are so glad that the atmosphere, food, and sights made for a stellar day out on the water.  Parking costs can sure be a nuisance, but it sounds like the amazing time you had was worth every penny! Let us know when you're ready for another adventure!  Best, Sophia
The service and atmosphere was great. Our server was super friendly and bubbly; she even took pictures of my boyfriend and I when I asked. The food was perfect -- good flavor and not skimpy at all. The views were pretty and it was the ideal date spot!
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi Victoria!  Perfect food, pretty views, and a lively, upbeat atmosphere! Oh my! This does sounds like an ideal date spot! We will be sure to let our partners know how much fun you had!  Best,  Sophia
We had a wonderful time. Good food, new friends and a view of DC not often seen.
We really enjoyed the lunch cruise. The staff was professional and friendly. The cruise started on time. We were promptly served a nice hot lunch and enjoyed the music and scenery.
The cruise was excellent. The food was very, very good. The very best part of all was the staff --- the service was impeccable.
