    Dream destination wedding!

    We just had our wedding aboard the Vista Star last weekend and everything about it was perfect!!! Colleen was so amazing to work with from start to finish. We promptly responds to any questions we had and never once did we feel like we were being a burden to her. She was so friendly and cheerful to work with and we would highly recommend to the Vista to Fleet to anyone looking for a nautical destination wedding!!!! We loved the simplicity and ease of a destination wedding. Their packages are wonderful- we chose the platinum package which was perfect for what we needed. The vendors they recommended were wonderfully organized-it was minimal effort on our part! Everything was delivered to the ship before we boarded and was a breeze. The ceremony was customized to what we wanted, the weather was perfect, the food and staff amazing, and the sunset was to dream for!!! 5 stars all around!!!! We can't wait to come back to celebrate future anniversaries with them!

    A Superior Wedding

    Vista Fleet was a fantastic venue for our wedding. Every step of the way, Colleen was there to help us plan and answer questions as they came up. She really has it down to a science. That鈥檚 not to say it feels impersonal or scripted. Every second of the wedding was a blast, from boarding, to finally docking. We were initially worried that 4 hours on a boat would seem like a long time for some people, but honestly we were all surprised and a little sad when it came to an end. All of the staff aboard the boat was extremely professional and were very nice at every occasion! Everything went perfect! The partners they have for catering, entertainment, and decor were all fantastic as well. Because of the package deals, there really isn鈥檛 a whole lot to worry about from the planning perspective, which really reduced the stress of wedding planning. We wish we could personally thank every individual who was on board with us during our wedding for contributing to such an amazing experience!

    Great experience planning and sailing!

    Vista Fleet was amazing to work with! We had our groom's dinner on the second deck of the Vista Star which was perfect for our party of about 50 people. Colleen was very helpful, responsive, and friendly throughout the planning of the event, and the staff on board were great as well. They had everything set up exactly how we wanted, and our guests loved getting to meander between the second (enclosed) and top (open air) decks. Thank you for a great experience!
