    Absolutely Amazing- Perfection!!!

    Wow!!! This was by far my favorite event from my wedding weekend. Jane was absolutely a delight to deal with- kind, thoughtful, creative and incredibly helpful. Bree was also such a pleasure to work with and to be honest I just love these gals! My events was so much fun- everyone enjoyed every minute. The food was fabulous, drinks were perfect, service amazing, the yacht was immaculate and the event was incredibly classy! Seriously even the sunset was perfection! I could not be happier!!!

    We looked into several yacht companies and decided on Charter Yachts because they are a family operation with much more personal service. We were treated like their most important customer throughout the process, not like just another invoice to be handled. Our coordiinator, Ariel, was great. She communicated regularly and kept us on task.

    City Cruises - Newport Beach's reply:

    Thank you , thank you, thank you. I am so pleased to read your review and hear that we gave you the feeling of being important because that is exactly what you are to us and would be disappointed to hear otherwise. Congratulations!
