Q:

How long do I have to hear back from anyone, via email, to a reservation? I wanted a specific date and time and i'm hoping it won't fill up before i actually hear back from anyone.

Jasmine S.  asked on  Feb 25, 2013

A:

Once you request a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email within 48 hours. The emails will be answered in the order they are received, so the sooner you request a date, the more likely it is that you will receive a reservation for your first choice.

More Questions and Answers

Q:

I am sure I am just reading this wrong but here is the 1st option that you have listed "•$15 for a cherry-blossom springtime harbor cruise or a 90-minute cherry-blossom happy-hour harbor cruise for one (up to a $30 value)" The word "or" indicates that there is being more than on option featured but I cant tell what it is. Is it that the cherry-blossom "springtime" harbor cruise is less than 90 minutes and the cherry-blossom happy-hour cruise is 90 minutes?

Angela T.  asked on  Feb 28, 2013

A:

You can use the tickets for either the Happy Hour (if you are 21 and over) or on the Springtime Cruises. Cruise lengths vary.

Q:

I called Groupon concerning my code not working. They sent you a message, saying that you would get back in touch with me. I definitely want to book a Cherry Blossom cruise on April 1 for 2 people. I tried to book the 4:30 cruise two days ago with no success; this is the time I prefer on April 1!!! Since I did try, following directions, I hope you can accommodate this request. If this is entirely impossible, I will accept the 12:00 cruise. Please respond assuring me that I do have reservations for 2 people on April 1!!! --Doug Wolters

Douglas W.  asked on  Feb 28, 2013

A:

I am sorry for the inconvenience as our phone lines are very tied up with Groupon holders and questions, we are doing our best to respond to all inquiries in a timely manner. Please simply follow the directions on your Groupon Voucher as the Groupon codes DO NOT WORK in our store. In order to secure a reservation, you must visit http://www.dcharborcruises.com/groupon.html and fill out a reservation form.You will then receive a formal reservation confirmation email with 24-48 hours. The reason we do it this way is so the reservations are taken in the order in which they are received. If this form does not work for you, please email groupon@dcharborcruises.com with your name, time preference, # of people, and all Groupon barcode numbers so we can make a reservation under your specific Groupon voucher.

Q:

What is the exact route of the cruise when it views the Cherry blossoms (just the portion of the trip in which the blossoms are in view). Due to the fact that the CB trees are planted around the tidal basin and only paddle boats are allowed inside the basis...I'm confused as to what cherry blossoms one can see. Is it only along the Washington Channel near Maine Ave or can you see anything from the Potomac near the flush gate? Please be detailed.

james  asked on  Feb 28, 2013

A:

You are correct in that commercial vessels cannot enter the tisal basin. PATRIOT II sails from the Washington Channel to the Potomac River and around Haines Point to the 14th Street Bridge Complex. When in bloom, the Cherry Blossoms are in full view as we cruise all along the East Potomac Park and also beside Fort Leslie McNair.

Q:

Am I guaranteed to see the Cherry Blossoms on these cruises? When exactly do they bloom?

Kelly M.  asked on  Feb 27, 2013

A:

*Cherry Blossom Harbor Cruise is a product name of DC Harbor Cruises, however, only Mother Nature has control over when these rare trees will bloom. DC Harbor Cruises cannot guarantee that the Cherry Blossoms will be in full bloom at the time of your departure. However, the sights of our Nation's Capital are still beautiful, with or without Cherry Blossoms! If you do a search for Cherry Blossom Bloom Watch 2013 DC, there may be some predictions, but no guarantee!
