It was a beautiful day... the area of D.C. was lovely.

We were too far from the Cherry Blossom trees. Also, I was disappointed in the quality of the accommodations on the boat.. Sorry...

No. I would prefer to bypass the discount in favor of efficient, and rapid service. Several other boats were providing the same service without the wait.

I was with a visitor from out of town and lost two valuable hours waiting to board this horribly over subscribed event.

Loved seeing things from the water

Enjoyed the bits of history shared by the "crew."

Nice weather. I wouldn't call it Cherry Blossom cruise as the trees were so far away!

Capitol River Cruise is the only operator who didn't have anyone at the boarding area so we had to ask around. We didn't know where to wait for the boat as the address list their boating office,not the boarding area. We just follow the crowd. They can enhance this experience without added cost by just posting a more detail instructions at the boarding area. Currently, they have a hard board that says the time of the next boat. We didn't notice it earlier as there were several operators there.
