Their food are great. Staff are nice and helpful (thanks Ashley our wonderful wedding planner, Susan, our account manager, Tyler, our service manager and many others). After our wedding on May 18, 2014, our guests commented on how wonderful our wedding was and how they enjoyed every minute on the cruise. Given the guaranteed high quality of their professional service, it seemed to me the only variable key factor to a perfect wedding with Odyssey cruise is whether the weather is good since the ceremony will be held on the observation deck. We were very lucky to have a gorgeous wedding day with the most amazing Chicago skyline and breathtaking Michigan lake.

We got married on the Mystic Blue in November. We couldn't have been happier with our choice in venues. We had a small wedding ( 60 guests), we had both our ceremony and reception on board the cruise ship. Our wedding planner, Joe, was amazing. He answered close to 100 emails over the course of the planning process and was there the day of the wedding to ensure things went fabulous. The entire staff was very accommodating and willing to go the extra mile to make my husband and I's vision a reality.

We had a lunch reception, the food was amazing, as was the DJ.
We had our ceremony outside (in the cold!) and I couldn't imagined having it inside - the views were amazing, everything went great!
