    Wonderful time!!

    Had our wedding on 6/28/19 at the Newport Princess for 50 guests. It was AMAZING! We spoke with Kim from the start to the end. We handled everything through mostly emails and texts here and there. Kim was very helpful and understanding with everything. She was able to answer everything immediately even my one question emails were not a problem for her. If you book an event with Electra, make sure you ask if they have the things you want before purchasing them. I didn’t use much of their stuff because I had a DIY wedding but they have a lot to offer. I only used their easels, round mirrors for centerpieces, lanterns and white drapings for the ceremony and stairwell. They made me a custom sign at the broad walk for my guests to see when they get to the marina.

    I highly recommend going to the food/vendor fair! We pretty much decided on everything that same night! We had the jumbo shrimp as our appetizers, mesclun salad, steamed veggies, scalloped potatoes. For our entree, we had coconut macadamia chicken. It was originally fish, but the chef at the vendor night told us we can substitute the meat so we chose chicken! The food was incredible and all my guests loved the food! The chicken wasn’t dry at all!

    The week of my wedding, I found out that my day-of coordinator was Star. I spoke to her on the phone first and it went well! Star was so detailed and made sure to ask all the important questions. We dropped off all our stuff a couple hours before the wedding (you’re able to drop it off the day before as well) and when we arrived at the yacht everything looked great!!! We didn’t ask for much, but we were glad everything we asked for were done! She got everything done on a timely manner. We weren’t going to have speeches but we added the speeches literally right when we got there and Star made it happen! In the end, she did a good job collecting all my stuff without us having to do anything! I left my card box for the venue to use in the future; I should have left more things for the venue to use!

    Overall, choosing Electra Cruises as our venue was the best choice! All of our guests had an amazing time, literally!!

    They made it easy!

    Both Susan and Jen were awesome. The planning was super easy, the evening went off without a hitch and we all had the tome of our lives. Beautiful ship, great food, amazing staff! My only regret is that it’s over.
