Enjoy your captain’s knowledgeable narration as you pass by the Washington Monument, Woodrow Wilson Bridge, and other sights
What to Expect

Spend a leisurely afternoon cruising the Potomac River while enjoying a lunch buffet. Meander down the river and take in city views from the water.

Listen in on your captain’s descriptions of historic landmarks, or take a turn on the dance floor where a DJ spins top 40 hits.

Choose from the Spirit of Washington’s 3 interior dining rooms or venture up to the outdoor deck for fresh air and great views of the city’s monuments, museums and other major sights.

Choose an alcoholic drink from the ship’s 2 bars (own expense) and take in the scenery before returning to the departure point at the end of the cruise.
