Our experience with the Majesty from start to finale has been nothing but exceptional. From the wait staff, to Doug coordinating the event on board, to the sales manager helping in advance of the event up to the day of to include helping with the decorations, and to Nancy and her colleague who enhanced the whole experience with their combination of live and pre-recorded music and finally the incredible food. They have exceptional cooks and everyone remarked on how their meal was nothing but exceptional and the best they have ever had at a wedding.Sent on 12/07/2014
We have received nothing but the highest compliments on the entire experience. The food was excellent, the band, excellent; the experience nothing but excellent! In fact, our little flower girl (8 years old) wrote on her place card the following: “That was amazing guys. I want to have my wedding here! “
Even today, I ran into one of the guests and she continued to express that this wedding was the “BEST WEDDING/RECEPTION” she had ever attended. And the wonderful thing is that comment was echoed over and over again!
Thank you for all your guidance and making this event the most unique possible for us as well as our guests. But even better, making it so “turn-key” as it could be. That became very important in choosing the venue as I work full-time and have limited availability to have to focus on all the “details”, especially being from Orlando and not having the event locally. This “turn-key” approach helped make this entire wedding planning experience nothing but positive and resulted in so many happy guests as the food was fabulous, the boat was fabulous and traveling on the inter-coastal on that clear beautiful night only made this experience even more memorable for all who attended.
