Contrary to popular belief, boats are actually much safer than cars, which inexplicably sink every time you drive them on water. Take a proper water-road ride with today’s Groupon from Odyssey Cruises. Choose between the following options:
- For $75, you get a three-hour dinner cruise on a Saturday night (a $151.49 value).
- For $65, you get a three-hour dinner cruise on a Sunday–Friday night (a $131.54 value).
The Washington DC dinner cruise serves floating diners a succulent three-course meal, lets eyes feast on DC's famous monuments, and indulges ears and feet with a live music medley. The gourmet feast abounds with tasty selections such as caramelized duck en croute, mushroom-braised short ribs, and bourbon- and peach-glazed pork tenderloin, which provide enough sustenance to satisfy a starving pack of longshoremen with culinary degrees. The powerful tastes of maple-glazed chipotle chicken and seafood ravioli gratinee feed the ambition of expansionist tongues, which soon seize desserts such as New York–style cheesecake and decadent chocolate-truffle torte. Panoramic windows let seafarers survey the historic waterfront as waiters don their singing caps and prove that their serving skills match their melodic mastery, dancing to the tunes that boat-top bands lay out for all attending rug-cutters.
Virtual tours of the watercraft let visitors whet their maritime imagination with a peek at the DC panorama. Should inclement weather mar the evening, Odyssey Cruises' ships are fully enclosed and climate-controlled.
