Odyssey III Sets Sail After Multi-Million Renovation

After a multi-million dollar renovation, the Odyssey sails again!

Hosting an intimate crowd far fewer than the 600 guests it can accommodate, the Odyssey III was christened and officially returned to service on March 30, 2019.   Setting sail on the Potomac for an abbreviated version of its popular dinner cruise, guests were invited to remark on its extensive transformation.

Among the renovations are state-of-the-art, tier 3 “clean diesel engines that will improve efficiency and reduce air pollution,” according to EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler.

Also, the reimagined interior space complements the vessel’s glass design and panoramic views.  Neutral tones and natural textures replaced bulkier dated décor at each of her three spacious dining areas and bar. Contemporary fixtures and finishes completed the interior makeover.

“Over the last five years, we have invested over $50 million in our fleet, our technology and our efforts to continuously elevate our guests experience. The spectacular transformation of Odyssey III is testament to that commitment,” said Kenneth Svendsen, CEO of Entertainment Cruises. “This is without a doubt one of our most significant developments this year, and ensures this exceptional vessel firmly remains the definitive luxury dining experience on the Potomac for generations to come.”

Cruising year-round from Pier 4 at The District Wharf, Odyssey III either takes a leisurely route north passing under the 14th Street Bridge up towards the Kennedy Center and Georgetown, or sails south on the Potomac past historical Old Town Alexandria and National Harbor while offering unparalleled vistas of the nation’s greatest monuments from the temperature-controlled interior and exterior observation spaces.

Guests aboard enjoy a three-course menu of freshly prepared specialties.

Entertainment Cruises, which owns the Odyssey III, operates a fleet of 19 vessels across four different brands (Odyssey, Spirit Cruises, Elite Private Yachts, Potomac River Boat Company) from its berths across Washington, D.C., Alexandria and National Harbor, MD, offering dining cruises, sightseeing tours and private charters; as well as the popular Potomac Water Taxi service.

Odyssey III cruise prices start from $64.90* for lunch or $114.90* for dinner (prices per person, excl. fees & taxes) and includes dining, music, dancing, impeccable service and unforgettable views, now both inside and out.
