Best Night Ever!
Our wedding reception was held onboard the Odyssey on the Friday between Christmas and New Year’s. We both had the time of our life! To us it was the most incredible and memorable night and everything was absolutely perfect! We have also had multiple guests tell us that it was one of the most fun weddings they had ever attended. It was a unique experience for them to experience the cruise ship and it was such an amazing party! The food was incredible – we have received so many compliments. The space was immaculate, decorated beautifully, and crew was so attentive to every need (no matter how small). They went above and beyond to treat each of our guests like VIPs! Every crew member was so excited and happy to be a part of the night. We stepped on board that night and everything was set up perfectly and looked like it was out of a wedding magazine! During the event our coordinator and the crew kept the night organized and moving and made it a night to remember for everyone, especially for us!! Our wedding coordinator Margaret is truly a Rockstar! There were no hassles here at all! During the planning process she was organized, detailed, creative, thoughtful, accommodating and helped us create an experience that was far beyond anything I could have dreamed of! She always took the time to touch base via email and on the phone, and worked with us every step of the way. Every time we spoke or met I was totally confident in the process and just so excited for our big day! She was personally so dedicated and made sure that every minor detail was exactly as we discussed and was perfect!! We 110% recommend having a reception onboard the Odyssey!Sent on 01/12/2019

I cannot even begin to describe how perfect Odyssey cruises made our wedding day. From initially touring the venue to the very last minute of the ceremony, the staff and crew of Entertainment Cruises Boston worked seamlessly to insure we had the wedding of our dreams. Our account manager, Meghan, went through every detail of our contract and patiently worked with us to accommodate our extended time frame, changes in packages and guest counts. Our wedding coordinator, Margaret, was a godsend throughout the planning process and met with us twice in person and as frequently as we needed to over the phone. She did everything she could to accommodate our Polish wedding traditions and was with us the entire ceremony and reception to guarantee our vision went exactly as we had discussed in our planning meetings. Margaret and the crew of the Odyssey integrated with our wedding guests and completed our intimate wedding - they were truly a part of the day and we loved that they joined in on the dancing and joking around with our guests. The servers and bartender never left a guest waiting and remembered everyone's orders throughout the night. Our guests could not stop raving about the service, weeks after the reception!
The venue speaks for itself - what could be more perfect than an evening cruise overlooking the Boston skyline. The Admiral's Lounge was modern, elegant, and the perfect size for our 50 guests - at a fraction of the cost of surrounding venues. If you are looking for a unique, elegant event in Boston, there is simply no better option. Thank you Odyssey Cruises for giving us the wedding of our dreams!!Sent on 09/10/2018

What an amazing experience from start to finish. We had an intimate celebration of our marriage planned and the Seaport Elite II was chosen for us! Jordan Zarcone was an amazing coordinator and right hand woman throughout the 9 months of planning. We planned this event from 3,000 miles and there was ZERO stress. The staff of Entertainment Cruises is there for you and is a true one stop shop for weddings. I would highly recommend this venue for those who want an affordable and non-traditional site for getting married/vow renewal. Everything was absolutely breathtaking and seamless. A 5 star venue.Sent on 09/07/2016
