    We got married on July 27, 2018 & I am so happy we found Electra Cruises to be our wedding venue. We are actually from out of state but I came across their website and we decided the travel out to California to take a look at the venue.

We are actually from out of state but I came across their website and we decided the travel out to California to take a look at the venue. We instantly fell in love with Destiny and knew this is where we wanted to get married. Electra made the wedding planning so easy and kept all of the stress off of me. The fact that this is an all-inclusive venue made my life so much easier. I am very indecisive but they were always so nice and answered any questions I had. Mary was my first wedding planner who was awesome but Jessica ended up taking over and was just as sweet and very detailed in her answers to my questions. All of our guests talked about how fun and unique the experience was. fell in love with Destiny and knew this is where we wanted to get married.

    Had an amazing time with Electra Cruises. Susan took care of everything before the day of the wedding and Kim handled the wedding day. Felt like I had nothing to worry about with Electra Cruises, everything was included in the package set up by them and I added the upgrades, which so happy that I did that.
