Hi Ladies,

I just want to say thank you for a job well done. My guest and I had a wonderful time and we just can't stop talking about it. My vision was truely captured in the event. It was exactly what I was looking for. The food and the service was perfect.

Andreea, thanks for stopping by. I enjoyed meeting you.

I will be contacting you in the near future to arrange another event but not as large.

Thanks again,

To the crew of Nina’s Dandy,

On Sunday, October 4th, my husband Brent and I schedule a brunch cruise to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary. Our entire experience -- from being greeted by the captain upon boarding to leaving with our bellies stuffed – was top-of-the-line. The wait staff was attentive and courteous, the pianist charming and entertaining, and every person we came in contact with seemed more than happy to be of assistance. Even the weather was gorgeous – we could not have ordered a nicer day! We ate our full of the delicious buffet and even went back for seconds. I especially enjoyed the narration of our surroundings as we cruised – it was fun to learn some interesting history and facts. Overall, it was a lovely way to spend a Sunday, and I want to extend my sincerest thanks for showing us such a nice time.

Sara & Brent Freeman
P.S. We really did feel like “celebrities”!

Dear Nina

Personally and on behalf of my wife and our good friends from Denmark I wish to thank you and the entire crew on board Nina's Dandy for a fantastic evening on your wonderful ship.

Excellent food combined with very good, friendly and efficient service and a nice atmosphere from the moment we stepped onto the ship all contributed to make this an evening to remember.

Thank you to all of you,
Lars-Henrik Worsoee

Dear Dandy

It [is] just impressive how Dandy [can] perform with the reasonable price. I am planning to use Dandy more often with my business partners.

J. Lee

[Dear Nina,]

I want to thank you for a wonderful evening. The dinner cruise on the 27th was amazing. My wife and I were very impressed.

I have to say, I couldn't have done this without your assistance. Everything from the pre-planning, to the flowers, to the champagne were perfect. The food was outstanding. The service from the crew was awesome as well. From the greeter at the door, to our waiter....they were all great.

I will recommend to anyone inquiring about a dinner boat cruise to the Dandy Restaurant Cruises. I assure you, that was not our last dinner cruise with the Dandy crew.

Thank you again for your outstanding service.

[Dear] Kathy,

I want to thank you for a wonderful evening, the cruise, the meal the service could not have been better. My wife and I, because of my job, often have not had the opportunity to spend our anniversaries together. This year appeared to be another year separated on our anniversary but because she was able to get away and join me on this trip and because of the Dandy we experienced a memorable evening together and we will always look to this anniversary celebration as one of the best of our 32 years.

Thanks again,
Danny Whatley

[Dear] Kathy,

We had a great first experience on the Dandy. Your staff took great care of us and the service was impeccable. We will be booking more trips with Dandy when we have friends and family in town.

Thank you for helping us make a memorable evening.


To Nina and The Crew of The Dandy,

I would like to take the time to personnaly thank you folks for a great time on our Dinner Cruise on Saturday, Sept 23, 2006.

The service we received was above expectations from the time we arrived up to the disembarking of the Dandy. Captain Harold was very nice at greeting and very knowledgeable in our conversation.

Christian was our waiter and was very nice, very polite and provided outstanding service throughout the evening.

Being an Account Executive I travel frequently and eat at many restaurants, This said, the meal I had aboard the Dandy again was above expectations. I had the Prime Rib Dinner and I must say that this was the best cut and cooked Prime Rib I have ever tasted. I put this Prime Rib on top of my list and that's comparable to many Washington DC restaurants I frequent throughout the year.I highly recommend Nina's Dandy to anyone that lives or is visiting the Alexandria Area. It is well worth the money for a very enjoyable and relaxing evening.

This Fine Dining Experience is a true value for the price and by far was my best in years.

Keep up the great work and I look forward to my next cruise up the Potomac with you folks.

Thank you.
Kip Ruposky

[Dear] Dandy,

...[your] Dinner Cruise is hard to beat.

Everything was super-duper last Friday. The [warm] welcome of the Captain and Crew, the excellent [dinner] in a pleasant atmosphere; who [could] ask for [better] to feel [at] home?

...nothing beats the 5 course dinner cruise which started with a magnificent colorful sunset. Seeing the reflection of a full moon on the peaceful Potomac River was really a treat. How romantic... listening to music on the deck [while] smooth sailing on a beautiful gently breezy evening.

Everyone should sail the Dandy at least ONCE a year.

S. Lockwood

[Dear Nina,]

[We had a] great time.

Thanks for your help. [The] food was excellent, [and I] will recommend [The Dandy] to friends and associates visiting and living in [the] D.C. area...

the two thunder storms also added to the evening.

Dear All:

On behalf of my wife, I just wanted to extend a heartfelt "THANK YOU" for the wonderful cruise we had on June 16th aboard the "Nina's Dandy." The entire experience was memorable and there was no better way to spend our 22nd wedding anniversary than aboard your vessel.

We just want you to know that we WILL be coming back SOON, hopefully with many more of our family.

Steve & Edye Dandy

Dear Ms. Wilson,

I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful night aboard the Nina'a Dandy this past Friday. Every member of your staff was courteous and helpful, and my date and I had a wonderful evening.

We are already planning to board another dinner cruise with friends before the summer is over.

Samuel S. Lee

Hi Scherrie!

I had to let you know how wonderfully everything went. The boat itself was very, very nice. All the guests were impressed with it. I'm sure the Dandy will get more business due to the success of the Anniversary brunch. My parents were appropriately surprised...

The Nina's Dandy staff was absolutely wonderful. They were very polite, professional and accommodating. They worked very hard to ensure that we had the experience we wanted. They did everything we asked of them with a smile and gracious demeanor. They even tolerated my family (who likes to hang around and talk) lingering on the boat after we returned. I will definitely recommend the Dandy.

Oh, and the food was excellent!

Thank you so very much for all your help and patience as I tried to plan this event.

Sincerely and Extremely Pleased,
Nichelle B. Shoats

[Dear] Kathy,

[I] just wanted to follow up after our Dandy cruise. We had a great time, and my parents loved it. They especially loved the food, and they are usually a bit finicky.

[The] whole experience was quite enjoyable, thanks! (In fact, some of their friends at home are looking into it now)


[Dear Nina]

Just wanted to drop a quick note and thank your crew for a spectacular evening last Saturday.

It was me and my wife's first anniversary, and afterward she told me that it would be hard to top our experience. We had a fabulous time, the food was great, service was incredible and the evening was unforgettable.

Thanks so much for your hard work in making our evening so memorable.

See you again soon!
Bryan & Brittany Atwell

[Dear Nina]

Last night my parent's cruised Nina's Dandy for their 40th anniversary surprise getaway. They have not stopped raving about it since they set foot on land yesterday evening. They said the food was delicious and that everyone went out of their way to make the experience wonderful.

Thank you so much for making their evening an over the top success.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, for making their anniversary such a memorable and special event!!!

Wynne Scott


My wife and just wanted to drop you a quick line to tell you that your cruise the night of April the 6th was a night for us to remember forever. It was our 30th wedding anniversary and your team of cruise boat, crew and Captain made it a perfect night!!!

Thank you for the memories!!!

Dan & Kathy Cain

[Dear Nina]

Thank you for an unforgettable night. We enjoyed every minute including the rain storm that night. We live in southern California and don't have too many lightning storms to watch in the summer. Sitting at our table by the window and watching the storm move across the Potomac was fun. You [would probably] have to be from where we live to understand that.

The dinner we ordered was way beyond our expectations. It was perfect. It really could not have been any better, and the service was outstanding. The captain was very gracious and our waiter, Jose, very attentive.

During the next year we will be going back to Northern Virginia quite a few times and we are looking forward to dining on the Dandy again.

Richard Morris and Lynette Winter

Dear Nina,

I wanted to tell you what a lovely birthday party cruise I had a board Nina's Dandy is staff was wonderfully cooperative, ... the view was delightful, the food was delicious.

Judy Drewry

To the attention to Nina Wilson,

I just want to let you know that our visit with you folks on the 13th was wonderful. We thought that the food was excellent, plentiful and the waiters were so helpful in every way.

This was the best trip we have made.

Thanks again,
Hazel J. Ball

Dear [Ms. Wilson],

We really enjoyed the special evening [aboard Nina's dandy]. The food, service & entertainment was super. The holiday lights, full moon and monuments added to the evening.

Barb & Ken Pack

Dear Ms. Wilson,

What a wonderful evening you provided for my husband and me last week aboard Nina's Dandy! The cold rain that persisted outside served to enhance Washington as if in a Monet painting. We still managed a short trip to the upper deck and love every minute. Thought we had seen DC every way there was in the 35 years we have been in this area, until our cruise showed us an entirely different view.

Our meal was scrumptious, beautifully presented and the service, excellent. Everyone was very attentive and interested in our enjoyment of the evening.

We look forward to bringing our family aboard for a cruise and I especially am excited about recommending the Dandy Cruises to my clients for special events.

Margie Wheedleton

[Dear Nina],

We were extremely fortunate to be aboard your beautiful boat on the 6th for a cruise on the Potomac. It was most memorable. Your Captain, crew, and staff, treated us like royalty. The food, just excellent!! Your boat is without a doubt the best thing in the Washington D.C. area.

Thank you,
Mary and Skip Miller

Dear Ms. Wilson:

Last Friday, I hosted a surprise 70th birthday party for my mother aboard Nina's dandy. I just had to write to tell you how impressed I was with your staff and excellent service they provided.

Many of my guests told me how impressed they were with the staff, the tour and food. I did not hear one complaint-only praises about Nina's Dandy luncheon cruise. As a person who has planned many events during her career, that is rare. So, thank you and your staff for making this event extra special.

Ms. Edie M. Bernier

What Our Guests Are Saying

The cruise was perfect. The food was perfect, the plate presentation was beautiful & all the plates, cups, glass & silverware were clean. The staff was fast, efficient, accommodating and smiled all the time. When the boat docked at the end of the cruise, your staff lined up to thank us including the Captain. Please pass on our appreciation & thanks to all who helped make this a successful and memorable evening. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed theirselves.
