    Beautiful Venue!

    My fiancé and I fell in love with the Cruiseport, it is a beautiful venue with amazing staff! We loved how open it is with all the windows overlooking the water. We were originally supposed to be married there on 5/23/20 But due to covid we had to postpone multiple times. I can not thank Kristen Barrett enough helping us navigate through all the changes making everything go smoothly and easy, she is truly amazing! We first postponed to 11/13/20, and the decided to postpone again to spring of 2021. Kristen knew how much I really wanted a Saturday date, and unfortunately at the time they were booked solid for the spring. But when 5/1/21 opened up, she called me immediately to let me know a Saturday had just became available and she thought of me right away. I can not imagine the amount of hard work it was with all the brides in my similar situation having to postpone or cancel due to covid, but Kristen made sure she reached out and kept in communication throughout the whole process. We ended up just recently deciding to cancel all together due to the covid restrictions, and she helped us easily receive a full refund. Thank you so much for making everything with the planning and replanning stress free! I would recommend the Cruiseport to anyone interested in this venue!

When a couple plans a North Shore wedding Cruiseport is almost always on their list of places to visit and there is no question that their reputation makes them amazing. The event spaces there are just great. The staff works very closely with the clients to ensure their visions for a great day are always accomplished. They can accommodate a full wedding day from ceremony, to cocktails, to dinner & dancing - they are a great option for a one stop shop for great atmosphere!
