Great choice if you want to do something different and budget is not a serious concern. They take care of everything but if you want to make any changes it will cost you. Very professional and responsive!

Our wedding ceremony and reception on the Odyssey in DC was magical. This was my second wedding and never thought that it could ever come close to feeling as if it was the first. Elena Dixon, the wedding coordinator of the Odyssey, surely made me feel like I was a bride for the first time. The food was fabulous and the views magnificent. If you are looking for the perfect place to get married , you must consider having it on the odyssey. You will cherish the moments forever , like I will.!!

Our experience with Odyssey was great. The staff was very accommodating in scheduling, food choices, and working with our wedding planner. And the cruise experience was great! The views from the Potomac River are wonderful, and best of all, the wait staff was very efficient and helpful.

Married on Odyssey III
April 29, 2016
"We had our amazing wedding, both ceremony and reception, on the beautiful Odyssey III at 10 am on Friday, April 29th. It was the perfect weekday morning wedding. Even though we only booked one side of the Carneros Room and there were other guests on the boat during our wedding, it felt so exclusive and intimate. Our guests traveled to our wedding from all over the world, from New York to Missouri, from the US Virgin Islands to Africa, so we wanted to provide them with a unique destination experience and a tour of DC all at the same time. Every single one of our guests loved the venue and raved about the food even to this day. Since it was at the end of April, it happened to be a somewhat rainy and gloomy day, but once you were inside the beautiful ship you would have never known it. Our guests were completely shielded from the elements but still able to have the morning sun shining down on them and look at the amazing views of the river, the monuments, and the DC skyline. Although everything didn’t go off without a hitch (on our end) the staff and team at the Odyssey were absolutely amazing at handling the schedule changes and craziness. All the staff went above and beyond. They made the day as stress free as possible and were completely understanding and patient with us. This made us feel like VIP on our special day. DJ Rich was amazing and a true professional. Working with Elena and Jennifer from the very beginning was awesome. They were knowledgeable, detail-oriented, organized, and made every effort to accommodate any special requests we had. We are so glad and grateful that we choose the Odyssey to have this one and a lifetime day! Tip: I highly recommend getting the boarding photos, they make the perfect wedding favors, our guests loved them, money well spent!!

We experienced a wonderful wedding event on The Odyssey. Julie and Jennifer and their colleagues gave us great, attentive support throughout the planning process. Jennifer was supremely communicative, flexible, and helpful leading up to and during our event. The staff made an extra effort to have the dining room be as beautiful and comfortable as possible. DJ Rob was extremely accommodating and well-prepared for both the ceremony and dance party that followed. We appreciated that Captain Matt was such a good sport about surprising our guests as the facilitator of our vows. He even welcomed the kids to come visit during the cruise. We continue to receive positive feedback from our guests months after our wedding party - they loved the food and overall kindness of the service staff! We are very grateful to the entire Odyssey team for all that was done to help us throw such a super party on The Potomac River!

Our guests could not stop raving about their experience. The food was wonderful (and I'm a former NYC foodie so I like to think my palate is at least somewhat refined) and the alcoholic beverages flowing. The staff bent over backwards to make sure things were perfect for us. Wonderful experience, particularly with so many out of town guests. Everyone raved about the music as well (thank you Mark)!

We had our wedding onboard the Odyssey in March. It was a wonderful experience for all of my guests.

Cons: I was a bit concerned that the kitchen seemed unprepared to take the orders of each guests. I was made aware that some guests received their lunch much later than others. Also, I requested a specific but simple napkin fold in order to fit our programs and menus. The wedding planner informed me that the staff did not prepare the napkins as previously (and repeatedly) requested which delayed the guests from boarding the boat on time. Even though there was a snag the crew was able to expedite my guests onboard and the ceremony began on time.

Pros: Food was delicious. The live band was OUTSTANDING. Tegan and Amanda were always available, courteous, friendly, responsive and thoughtful. My guests are asking for another ceremony onboard the odyssey for an anniversary cruise! We would like to thank YESSLYN, our server, who gave us whatever we needed. Everyone loved the warm cookies as they exited the boat.

If we had to do all over again, we would choose the Odyssey!!! Nice job. Best wishes.

This was our wedding rehearsal party. Everyone was impressed with the venue. We had people from Canada, South Africa, Florida, Colorado, California and New York who came for the wedding. It provided a very relaxed, fun, as well as a glimpse of our history, for all. It was very easy for me, the host, as everything was taken care of from food, to entertainment. I would highly recommend!

Growing up, I wasn't the type of girl who had planned out the perfect dream wedding. My event was planned out withing three months... from picking out my gown, bridesmaid dresses, flower girl dress, the works. The wedding coordinator made it so easy to get everything just in time! It helped to have everything done on the Odyssey, such as wedding venue and reception. Everything turned out beautiful, and breath taking. It absolutly turned out to be one of the best days to of my life. Most of my friends and family still talk about how wonderful it was, and how delicious the food was. The staff on the odyssey was extremely professional, and made my day unforgettable. I wish I could hit my rewind button and relive my experience!
