My parents treated my husband and I to the Sunday brunch cruise since we staying in Virginia over a long holiday weekend. When we first boarded, a photographer took our picture that was available for us to purchase when the cruise ended. We were greeted with champagne and led to our private table to wait for the other passengers to board.
We were able to preselect our brunch meals when we made the reservations and were quite pleased with the Eggs Benedict when it arrived.
Since the weather was beautiful, we went out on the deck and listened to the captain point out the various Washington D.C. sites. He would throw in some political humor every now and then, which made it especially enjoyable. We had the upper deck almost completely to ourselves and remained up there for the majority of the cruise.
The food was better than some of the food I have had on other "dinner" or "brunch" cruises. The staff was readily available for beverage needs. Other than a billing error (they wanted to charge us for the cruise when my mother had prepaid), it was a perfect experience.
