This is not my first time on the Odyssey Cruises, and for good reason. It has a great environment, our server has always treated us as a welcomed guest. The food was very good as well, and the sights are very nice along the river.

I thought we would be closer passing by the monuments. We had upgraded to a window table which is not necessary. My husband's short ribs were very good, but my crab cakes were much too salty. Our server, Lucy, did a fine job. The wine...More

The food was absolutely amazing. We had Mimosas coming non stop. The servers were excellent. Buffet style. Great selection of food. The salmon was amazing. Lots of fruit, breakfast meats, muffins, desserts galore. The band was amazing. People were dancing the whole time.

I don't recall Odyssey specifying a tip policy. Given the outstanding service we received on our voyage, I would suggest a generous tip. That's assuming you enjoy similar service. By our choice, we tipped them well, felt it... More
I just looked at booking a cruise for my spouse, myself and teen daughter for tomorrow evening. For 3, well over $600.00. Can you explain to me what the fee of OVER $100.00 (an administrative fee) is all about. I am reading the reviews posted and there are many that are not complimentary...
