    There are no words to completely convey how happy and appreciative we are of the service we received from World Yachts. From start to finish they really went out of their way to make our night truly magical. The staff, food, and sites seen from this venue are truly remarkable and we are so grateful for the assistance we received from Amanda Del Valle, wedding coordinator, and the rest of the crew on the Atlantis, that included, Amanda Brown, Luis Combres, Margarita Rodriguez, and Cleiton Fias. We can not emphasize enough...if someone is considering having their special day aboard a yacht, you will never find a more ideal organization to work with than World Yachts.

    My husband and I were planning a destination wedding for Labor Day weekend for guests traveling from three different countries and many parts of the US, including ourselves traveling from Brazil. We did not want to pick a restaurant or hotel banquet room that would could not be differentiated from any other location in the city or in any other city. World Yacht gave our guests access to New York City that even people that have been to the city several times have not experienced. When the boat stopped in front of the Statue of Liberty illuminated, I thought the boat was going to capsize with everyone on the one side appreciating the view and taking photos. World Yacht has a lot more to offer beyond the views. Everyone was impressed with the food and the attentiveness of the service staff. People absolutely raved about the osso bucco. For me the one thing that I could not do without for the wedding was Fiona Yan, the wedding planner provided by World Yacht. The night before our wedding we met another couple from England also having a destination wedding and we compared experiences. The bride complained about spending a lot of money and time making trips to plan the wedding. I had a completely different experience working with Fiona. She was very organized, responsive, and positive. I felt like I was her only client but I know she had a full schedule. At first I tried to arrange the hotel lodging for my guests on my own and the salesperson was not responsive. I told Fiona about my problems and by the end of the day I had the sales manager calling to apologize and Fiona had made a better deal with Ink48, a hotel that all my guests loved. After that she was my one-stop shopping for flowers, music, tuxedos, hair, makeup, and a bus trip. During the weekend my guests commented how relaxed I seemed to be. I was because Fiona helped me to feel prepared and confident about the wedding ... and it was perfect!
