    Smooth Sailing with YachtStarship

    Our Wedding day was one to remember, not only for my husband and I, but for our guests as well. YachStarship's crew assisted us with things we never even thought of (they mailed our wedding license!); neither myself nor my husband had to worry about anything the day of the wedding, 100% enjoyed! Our guests left wishing to go again

    Wedding Day Delight

    Such a magical time! I recently had my wedding on the Yacht Starship II and it was absolutely the best time! Both Cheyanne and Eric were completely helpful with planning the event. The staff were friendly, the DJ is amazing, the food was delicious, the bartender top notch and the overall look of the yacht is beautiful! I highly recommend Yacht StarShip Cruises & Events for anyone who is having a wedding in the area. The views are spectacular! Hands down the best experience, especially with friends and family. The venue is unique and overall a fun time!
