Easy peasy wedding planning!
Dorit and her team were very professional and provided top notch service. The all- inclusive package made lives easy for us and it’s well worth the price tag. Our guests loved the whole experience and we couldn’t be happier with our decision to have our reception on the Aqua Azul.Sent on 10/21/2019

Unique and Elegant Wedding
My wedding was flawless and I would recommend this without any reservation.
Food: Awesome, they have a lot of options and everything just great! (I got to eat at my own wedding too which was nice)
Decor: The boat is decorated beautifully and elegantly. People thought I spent so much money on this venue. But honestly, is was comparable to other venues where you basically just get a nice big room.
Saving Money: I think having my wedding here actually saved me money because I didnt have to buy any decorations. Also photobooth? I didnt think it was necessary on a boat wedding when you have the NYC skyline, Statue of Liberty, and Brooklyn Bridge as the backdrop.
Staff: The staff made my wedding. I cannot begin to tell you how professional, kind, polite, and friendly the staff was. We had 2 people in wheelchairs (there is an elevator on the boat) and they were raving about how helpful the staff was to get them where they needed to be without missing anything.
I would do my wedding a million times over on this boat. If you are looking for something unique and different you have to use this venue! You will have no regrets!Sent on 09/30/2019

Highly Recommend the Aqua Azul!
We had our wedding reception in July 2019 on the Aqua Azul. Dorit and her team were excellent at coordinating and were flexible to meet our requests. Our guests commented on how attentive and kind the staff were. Thank you so much to the Aqua Azul for helping us create memories that will last a lifetime.Sent on 07/19/2019
