    Great venue for a prom!

    The Aquarium staff was helpful and professional. We hope to have many more proms at the Newport Aquarium.

    Our experience with the aquarium was great - from showing initial interest to having our wedding there until the very end of the wedding. Dee was just spectacular and right before our wedding they were transitioning to a new wedding coordinator. Dee remained involved all the way through and Allison was great taking things over. They really worked well together and Dee was very thorough to make sure nothing was missed during the transition. All of our guests loved the venue as well and it really has it all - the aquarium experience with such a classy reception room and the best view of the Cincinnati skyline. Would highly recommend this as a wedding spot.
