    During these pandemic times they were responsive and professional to our needs

    This was the perfect venue for me! During these pandemic times a slimmed down wedding guest list means a little something*extra* is needed to make your event spectacular. A normal venue with bland catered food is not going to cut it when you’ve whittled your guest list down to about 50 people.

    The wedding cruise had all 42 of my guest counting down the days until they could board the ship. Also since the ship has 3 levels and can normally seat up to 280 there is plenty of room for social distancing.

    Food that is selected and prepared for guests on board is much better than the bland food from most caterers. Everyone was raving about the food and the number of selections.

    Also the Starlite staff was great to work with. My wedding coordinator June was with me every step of the way so that my perfect day was .... perfect.


    I highly recommend them for a wedding venue

    Perfect Reception!!!

    I got married on June 23, 2019 and had a party of 40. We had our reception on the Sapphire and had the top deck to ourselves, and it was worth every penny!!! It was so nice, I didn’t even bring any decor just the cake, and wedding glasses and it was beautiful. Perfect for a smaller wedding party. The food was great over 10 options for everyone. The crew was so nice and was always checking up on us. It was the perfect reception!!! The price was definitely worth it so cheap to feed 40 people with 3 courses and a boat ride!!
