The Odyssey is a unique cruise ship that was designed low enough to pass under the Memorial Bridge, allowing the ship to pass by the Kennedy Center and Georgetown. The route of the ship includes the Jefferson Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, and the Watergate Hotel. If the wind and tid conditoins prevent navigation to Georgetown, an alternate route south on the Potomac goes past Old Town Alexandria.
The vessel has seating for as many as 600 people, with glass ceilings and outside decks. The ship began its inaugural voyages in mid-1995. Odyssey cruises year round, with certain restrictions, serving lunch and dinner and also offering Sunday jazz brunches and midnight cruises. Lunch cruises range from $51.50 for the lunch cruise to $99.00 for the dinner cruise. The Odyssey also does brunch cruises on Saturdays and Sundays, with prices starting at $59.50.
