    Amazing wedding

    Food- Our guests really loved the food. Cynthia and I personally loved the appetizers. The skewers were amazing!! Everything after was just as good. I especially loved the steak.

    Staff- The staff was great at being attentive to our guests when it came to refilling water and the like. They were very prompt with bringing out all the meals as well. I think the real highlight was the bartenders. They made phenomenal drinks, maybe too good if you looked at some of my family at the end of the night haha.

    Overall, the wedding was amazing. All the guests really enjoyed themselves, whether they were on the dance floor or on the top deck taking in the sights. It truly was a magical night :)

    Better than imagined

    Camille helped make our wedding absolutely amazing. Every guest had an incredible time and couldn’t thank us enough for inviting them. The Sundancer Yacht is beautiful, small yet not crowded. Perfect for our small wedding (less than 30). Could have easily fit more people, especially post Covid when both decks can be used I wouldn’t be surprised to see 75-100 people comfortably boarded.

    Amazing! Supportive and Honest

    My husband and I worked with Camille to perfect our special day. She was nothin but helpful, caring, and genuine throughout the process. It truly made us feel as if she was working along with us as a guide for support. Her energy and passion even helped us feel at ease in planning such a stressful yet fulfilling day! Additionally, Camille has many connections within the community, which helped us to decide on which vendors would be best equipped to be a part of our yacht wedding!

    Thank you Camille!

    I have been working with Camille Cerria, owner of Smooth Sailing Celebrations, for the better part of 5 years now. Since I am her reccomended entertainement vendor, Camille and I work very closely behind the scenes, as well as in conjuntion with our clients to guarantee the overall success of our events. Camille is extremely detail oriented, and easily accessible to answer any of our questions. I get nothing but rave reviews of her services, and highly reccomend her to anyone interested in booking their special event on a boat/yacht. As many of our clients are either Brides, Corporate professionals, Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebrants, or Sweet 16 celebrants, they have all had the peace of mind knowing that Camille was taking care of all the details that they may not have even considered, allowing them to invest their time into just having a great time. It's all said in the name, so if you are looking for Smooth Sailing for your Celebration, look no further than Camille!

    Smooth Sailing Celebrations understands how to take care of all the little things, so couples and their guests can enjoy the experience of celebrating on the yachts. I've had the pleasure of seeing first-hand several of the vessels in their fleet, and they truly have something for every size and preference. From the decor, to the staff, to the food and music, it is a simply an awesome and unique way to host an event.
