Each year, Washington DC's lovely cherry blossom trees — a gift from Tokyo — erupt into full bloom, blanketing the city in soft shades of pink and white. This springtime display, which takes place over several weeks, affords visitors to America's capital city some stunning photo opportunities.
Have your own picture taken by a photographer as you start your voyage; you can purchase it after the cruise. Follow your friendly hostess to your table, which may be shared with other parties. Choose the upgrade to guarantee yourself a window table with the most spectacular views. Relax with complimentary coffee, tea, iced tea and water, or purchase beer, wine or mixed drinks from the fully stocked bar as DJs play music to create a relaxed mood.
Head over to the buffet where you can choose from a wide variety of hearty salads, gourmet main courses and sumptuous desserts (see Itinerary for a sample menu). As you dine, listen to narration about Washington DC's history and the many landmarks you pass, including the Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, Washington Monument, Vietnam Veteran's Memorial and Kennedy Center.
Gaze out the boat's panoramic windows or walk along its outer decks, admiring the sights and the cherry blossoms fluttering in the breeze and reflected in the waters of the Potomac. Keep your camera handy for the duration of your 2-hour lunch buffet cruise, which concludes back at Pier 4.
