    It truly was the best day of our lives --everything was beautiful and unforgettable. Minor details didn't go as planned, but that is part of the process. Best advice is to stay on top of it--keep contacting them months prior to your special day if you do not want to get bombarded with an overwhelming to-do list the last 10 chaotic days before your wedding. Also, stay on top of the "Meet the Fleet" dates, as they might not be available the last couple of weeks before your big day, if you want to try the delicious food they serve. Your guests will enjoy cruising the Bay.

    I have worked with Commodore Cruises & Events for many years and they do a great job. Their boats are beautiful and what a way to your special event but by cruising the SF Bay. My wife's company has event hosted and event on one of their boats and it was great.
