Glasses clink on Dandy Fine Dining’s multi-level luxury boat, as revelers mingle on a 3,700-square-foot outdoor upper deck. For 2.5 hours, the brunch cruise meanders past landmarks such as the Washington Monument, the Jefferson Memorial, and Nationals Park, allowing guests to take home local lore without embezzling from a town crier. The climate-controlled ship floats patrons merrily along as they chatter during a breakfast and lunch buffet complemented by live music. The brunch menu fills plates with salmon mousse, belgian waffles with choice of toppings, and omelets that can be made to order or shaped into a rhombus.
On the weekends, sailing types embark on a three-hour cruise and soak in live music as they dig into a four-course meal. The dinner menu complements the boat’s elegance with selections such as prime rib, a vegetarian platter, or shrimp stuffed with crabmeat. Patrons glide across the ship’s gleaming candle-lit marble dance floor or twirl beneath twinkling stars on the open-air deck like a sea captain’s carousel.

Year round, Dandy Fine Dining Restaurant Cruise sails down the Potomac in riverboats with live music, dancing, and gourmet continental cuisine. Passengers snap photos of cherry trees fluttering in pastel pink from the expansive upper deck on springtime cruises, or savor prime rib and stuffed shrimp while watch the president balance a star on top of the Washington Monument in the winter. Cruises embark from Alexandria and glide up to Georgetown before making their way back to port.
