    Everything was above my expectations!

    Our wedding on Starlite Majesty exceeded all of our expectations! The yacht was beautiful. The food was great. And the DJ played the type of songs we requested. The team did a great job capturing everything I wanted to do in the 2 1/2 hours time span. All of our guests told us that it was the best wedding that they have ever been to. Special shout out to Theresa, Amber and June for capturing everything I wanted for our special day. Also thanks to Carlos for executing everything flawlessly!

    StarLite Dining Cruises's reply:

    Thank you and it was great working with you. We are happy your guests enjoyed the cruise. Hope to see you on your first anniversary.
