Entertainment Cruises invites guests aboard the Spirit of Washington to bask in dining, dancing, and daydreaming atop the Potomac’s glittering waters. Once aboard, guests dine from a plentiful buffet peppered with roasted rosemary beef, wild Atlantic salmon, and hearty pasta dishes as they chat with other passengers at a round candlelit table. Meanwhile, a singing waitstaff croons popular songs to keep meals mellifluously seasoned and drown out games of 20 Questions played by bored stowaways. Once diners have had their fill, a top-40 DJ stands at the ready to pump the dance floor with two hours of hip-swiveling tunes while the watercraft explores the city's sights.
Cruise-goers emerge onto the outdoor observation decks to drink in shimmering views of the U.S Naval Research Lab, Old Town Alexandria, and the Washington Monument, whose majestic top casts an impressive reflection into the Reflecting Pool and houses the Air Force’s decommissioned jetpacks. Passengers return to shore no later than 11 p.m. with eyes, ears, and appetites awestruck and satisfied.
