In 1912, the mayor of what was then Tokyo City, Japan, gifted more than 3,000 cherry trees to the people of Washington, DC, to celebrate the friendly relationship between Japan and the United States. Today, cruise-goers can enjoy the beauty of the blossoms that still line the Potomac right at the peak of their springtime splendor. Aboard the Pelican (for 90-minute cruises) or another motor yacht (for 60-minute cruises), guests will also spot national sights such as the Pentagon, the Washington Monument, and the US Capitol Building.
