Pleasant Dinner Cruise
A dinner cruise on the Ottawa River seemed like a great idea on one of the hotest and most humid nights in Ottawa in July. As the dining area has no air conditioning, it was pretty uncomfortable until the boat 'set sail'. Once we were moving and people had ordered and been served their drinks, most people moved outside to the open air decks. The cruises takes in the sights along the Ottawa River but there is no commentary and that was a welcome suprise. There is a live musicain on board but not obtrusive or loud. The buffet dinner is served after about an hour but nothing to rave about. The coleslaw starter was fresh and tasty and the Salmon and Pork mains were OK. These were served with wedgie potatoes and/or pasta. Desserts were apple crumble and a chocolate pudding and were OK. There was also a plate of fresh fruit. The servers were friendly and kept the tables clean and tidy. One thing to note is that there are only tables that seat 6 or 8 onboard. If you are a couple, then you will share with others and seating is arranged according to when you reserved (i.e. the early reservations get the window seats). Overall, it was a pleasant evening two and a half hours or so but is some pricey with the buffet meal and drinks purchase.
We took a lovely journey with Capital Cruises. The trip was not overly expensive ($20 per adult and a decent family rate). There were not many people on the boat, despite the fact that it was a gorgeous day. The view fromt he river was terrific, combining Parliament Hill, the Rideau Falls and the lovely vistas along the Ottawa River. The pace was leisurely and the trip felt very safe a secure. There was an historical cimmentary playing in the background -- Ottawa manages to make Canadian history extremely boring, and this was no exception --but no on was bothered by it (and no one appeared to be paying attention).
After reaing the reviews posted, we were worried but that made our experience on the Capital Cruises Sunset Dinner Cruise a pleasant surprise! Entertainment was good and staff were friendly and attentive. Food was varied and there was lots of it. Pretty good too considering it is a catered meal on a boat - not a full scale restaurant! Bathrooms were spotless. It was a lovely way to spend a hot summer evening!
We where on the Y101 last year and had a great time except for on girl that was bartending and she was very rude. But my husband and I wanted to try the sightseeing cruise and found that girl was still working there and she was just as rude! And for as the cruise it was really boring! They need to spice things up. But we did go on the other boat company and it was much better!
I had purchased tickets for me and my wife for a cruise on the Empress of Ottawa and when we arrived at the embarcation point the ship was coming in to dock but I guess something went wrong as the ship never slowed down, slammed into the dock and then made a ricochet right onto some rocks leaving the whole bow of the ship out of the water. It didn't appear like anyone on board was injured but I wouldn't be surprised if the ship needed repairs. Needless to say, we stayed for a few pictures and then immediately returned our tickets for a refund. We opted for another tour boat operator instead.
This was one of the worst tours I have been on. Very tired and uninteresting commentary. The owner and employees were rude to us and paid little attention to our needs. The owner spent most of the time yelling at employees which made us feel uncomfortable. Seek other options.
